I know I just wrote (too much) about picking up dog poop, but something else came up that I felt like I needed to add.
My girlfriend got me a thing that you put on the end of the leash for poop bags. Like a toilet paper dispenser, but for picking up dog crap.
Anyway, the bags it came with are thin. Like, really thin. So thin that I imagine it would float away if you let one go on a completely windless day.
Being so thin, when picking up fresh dog crap, I can totally feel the temperature and texture of the specimen more than I could with my old bags, as if the bag is not even there.
Just thought I’d share that with you guys.
Oh, and yes. Yes, that is the way I just announced that I got a girlfriend.
Day 2: Diapers
Brandon left in the afternoon.
He’s not one for goodbyes, and mostly just said, “see you around” as he left, giving the dog a pat on the head.
But after he had walked out the door, she ran to the bottom of the steps, where she pawed at the door and cried for a solid ten minutes.
She’s smart, and she knew that he wasn’t just leaving for a little while.
While she was crying downstairs, I was crying upstairs as I took inventory of all of the tiny bloodstains that she made on my new carpet every time she sat down and used her bottom like a little rubber stamp. This was a problem that needed to be solved sooner rather than later.
So I put her in the crate that we bought for her, and made the journey to Petco.
That is where I found Simple Solution Diapers. They were doggie diapers for females in heat or for puppies with incontinence or excitable urination. And they even boasted “tail-wagging comfort!
You might remember that a few weeks ago, I bought a houseplant.
If you don’t maybe this will remind you:
Well I am sorry to tell you that three days after I bought Watson, I returned him.
Now, Watson was a great plant. And we had some really great times together during those three days. He didn’t do anything wrong.
But he had to go.
You see, I did a little research and learned that Watson, a Dracaena, was actually toxic to dogs.
