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.
Now I know a lot of people who get house plants because some of them have some really good benefits for humans (not dogs though). However, if you don’t have any dogs and would like to learn more about how plants can improve your health, then click here.
