Adventure #8! Remember the time…

7 Aug

I owned a dog for 2.5 days?

No?

I know… It’s because the time passed so quickly that you blinked and you missed it.

Her name was Charlie. She was very cute. We were not a good fit. I had to bring her to the SPCA. It was a very sad weekend for me. It took me a few days and a good old-fashioned therapy session to feel “back to normal.”

I’m not sure whether the shelter didn’t know, or didn’t tell me, but she had clearly had trouble with children because every time we crossed paths with one in the street she would go crazier and crazier… and then she started biting me. Oh jeez. As hard as it was, and as much as I felt like a failure – it was the right thing to do for both of us. Going to the SPCA to bring a pet is so horrifying. Honestly.

So owning a dog is still on my list of things to do, but I’m going to leave it crossed off for now.

I still have to get cracking on teaching a class. I haven’t heard back from any of the schools I applied to.

I am taking two Mondays off work. I’m really excited! On the first Monday, I will go see Star Wars Identities with my dad. The second – SPA: massage that I received as a gift for Valentines Day. Woohoo!!

    this reminds me of Jaxx… listen, some dogs are abused and it takes forever for them to come out of it, and tons of discipline and training. And that little touch thing Cesar Milan does. Trust me, if she wasn’t right for you there will soon be a dog that is. OR STEAL ONE.
