For the last year, I have been dying to get a dog. If you follow me on Pinterest, I’m constantly repinning pictures of adorable creatures like this:
I can keep going…..but I won’t. Because I’m probably making you want a puppy too. And to make matters worse, my friend Emily is a crazy dog person and only encourages getting a puppy. At LEAST once a week she sends me dirty texts like these:
That is until this weekend. I’m currently dog sitting for my boss’ dog while he and his family are in Mexico. I started this Saturday and have the pup until the 27th. Let’s just say taking care of a dog on your own is DIFFICULT. I drove to Milwaukee on Saturday to run the Lucky Leprechaun 7k with a few friends and had to cut my St. Patty’s day celebrating short so I could get back to the dog. I even had to bail on a wedding shower because I couldn’t make the 8-hour round trip drive to Peoria because the little thing has to tinkle every 8 hours.
If you haven’t already noticed, I’m not the most sedentary person around. I’m always on the go. I’m lucky if I have one night a week without something to do. And dog sitting for the next 10 days will not be fun with this lifestyle.
So what is this teaching me? That I’m definitely not ready for a dog…yet. What a buzz kill that is.
UGH just look at this face.
I’m slightly obsessed with Ed Sheeran lately so enjoy a beat by the lovely Brit:
