She doesn’t ask me in English, but Honey often has questions. I’ve learned over the years that our life together is better if I don’t ignore her when she’s asking me something. Do you answer your dog’s questions?
It could be anything. But it has to do with dogs.
Does your town’s dog culture has you dodging poop bombs in the park and hiding behind cars to avoid rude dogs and their people? Maybe it’s time to move. Or at least try to grow a good dog culture where you live.
Since we’ve lived on the boat, we’ve only traveled as far as one long car trip. But I’ve already seen big differences in the way people treat dogs from one place to the next. What is your town’s dog culture? And is it hurting your dog?
Honey just celebrated her sixth birthday. She’s officially middle-aged. And as we approached her latest birthday, I started thinking about something I don’t consider with a young pup. Should we get Honey a pet health insurance policy?
What is Honey thankful for?
Some people only ever have small dogs. Others love big ones. I’ve met people who only ever have one breed of dog. And others who look like their dog family is made up of whoever walked in their door. Why did you pick your dog?
Yeah, I’m one of those irritating people who rants about stores putting Christmas stuff out before Halloween. But there’s one time I don’t mind thinking about Christmas early. And it has to do with art, crafts, and dogs.
“Sorry, I can’t come over because my family is visiting.” “Thank you so much. These purple socks with barfing unicorns are adorable.” I’ve done it. You’ve done it. We’ve all lied. But dogs don’t lie. Is that why they fight?
Some days I can’t take any more. If I read another story about whales trapped in nets or dogs dying from contaminated dog treats or the latest rant about ego-filled trophy hunters I’m going to scream. I get offline and go looking for something hopeful to read. Because sometimes we all need a little hope.
Honey did the cutest thing at the vet last week. I know you would have gotten a kick out of seeing it. But I don’t have a single image. Sorry. I don’t take pictures at the vet.
