Re: The answer to my Pet/Marriage Issues..
A cheery Friday to you all.
I am looking forward to some time today at the beach-
as I write this the sun is shining and the mosquitoes
are buzzing- the ocean is not only beautiful, but windy
and bug free 🙂
Apparently many of you have strong opinions on the
Thanks for all of your comments.
I recently wrote a newsletter commenting on how my
wife and I have different ideas on where the pets
should be living in our new house.
I am of the let them roam free opinion, while she is of
the give them only certain places to go opinion.
Here are a few in particular that stood out to me:
“Love me, love my dog! She married a vet, for Gods
sake. I realize there are different styles, everybody
has a right to theirs. But I won’t compromise on mine,
which is the pets have the run of the house. Love, to
me, always trumps things, The house is only a house,
and you can’t take it with you. Love, I think,
transcends all time and space, and what are pets,
but love in form. (even when they are naughty!)”
“I have a ideal. It works fine for here, I don’t know
how large your living room is,but you can get something
that Lewis would like to lay on(old chair or couch) and
put a cover over it and that would be his bed,he would
be close to you and still have his own place to lay.
You can take it off and wash it,good as new. Spray
some smell goodie stuff and call it good. Dog happy
women happy man happy lol Cleo maybe something smaller
if she like being close to you all.”
“Both Happy!! GET HER A CLEANING LADY for the big
stuff, then she don’t mind cleaning the rest!
Housework is not a rewarding job, every woman
hates it, BUT all women like a clean house so
with a little help you are both happy and she
won’t mind where the dog sleeps!!
Every woman dreams of having a cleaning lady so
why not make her happy? It is not THAT expensive
but it means a lot! Hope this helps?”
So WHAT am I going to do?
1. Have a good talk and re-inforce the fact that
she did marry a Vet- I have been ‘restrained’ and not taken home
every stray that becomes part of the clinic or shelter.
2. Get another couch for Lewis..he’d LOVE that idea!
3. Hire someone to clean as well..that is a GREAT suggestion 🙂
P.S. Have any of you ever had dogs or cats or any other animals
affect your relationships?
If so I would LOVE to hear about them on my blog.
When I was in the dating mode years ago, animals were
one of my BIG tests…If the person wasn’t an ‘animal’
person then they were out of contention.
Feel free to comment..and enjoy the unconditional love
from your pets.
It’s Your Pet…Heal Them At Home!
