As feathery soft and wet as a gentle wave; she’s kissed me again, at midnight. I do believe the dog suffers incontinence. Or severe anxiety. I fumble around for my left slipper, knowing she will have already absconded with the right one; which I’ll find in her bed, downstairs. On the other hand, her tranquil sister couldn’t be persuaded to leave her bed with a side of beef, until breakfast.
But we love our pets, don’t we? The positive effects of pet ownership on humans are seemingly endless and extremely well documented, even as they romp merrily into your home and settle into your heart before you can say you’re not a pet person. Has that ever happened to you?
Of the dozens of dogs and cats (and a tortoise) we’ve had over the years, the most difficult pets have been a parakeet who didn’t like his new roommate (yours truly) any more than I did, a peacock who wouldn’t come down from the telephone pole (just about anything scared him up there) and 21 head of cattle who could hide in plain sight or wreak havoc on an impromptu picnic when one gets his horns stuck in an old tire; alarming the herd into an all-out stampede. But calves are as sweet as any baby and my Herbie was no different in that respect :-)
Have you ever had a difficult pet?
And now for the Tell; the big reveal, I’m announcing my theme for the 7th annual Blogging A-Z Challenge as “Friends of the Famous”. You may have guessed it involves animals, but time will tell who’s who ;-)
