I did something kind of stupid…I got a dog…and now my life is in shambles. He’s been here 24 hours.
His name is Castle, (yes after Richard Castle of the television fame) he’s a Yorkie but not the little mini one, he’s full sized which makes him about 8 lbs., (he’s more medium than small) and he’s “people oriented”.
Now you might be asking yourself, “what the heck does ‘people oriented’ mean? I did too when the former owner said it yesterday as she dropped the dog off with his brush, a down-filled coat (he looks like a little duck hunter in it) and his travel kennel. She said he just prefers to be with people….and that, my friends, was an understatement.
Castle is a good dog so far, don’t get me wrong. My daughter is in love, my sons said ‘he’s small’ and my spouse (our family dog whisperer) was firmly attached 10 minutes after getting home from work last night. The concept of “we’ll try this out” is gone and has been replaced with “get used to him cause he ain’t goin nowhere”. But back to the “people oriented” thing….
Castle is a bit codependent on people. While I wanted a dog that would sit by my desk as I wrote, I got one that prefers to sit on my feet. He whines when anyone leaves and he has a need to “check in” (i.e. jump up in your lap and onto your desk) about every 20 minutes. Oh and did I mention he pittles in the house if you don’t take him out to the “front” yard? (Yep that was me in my robe and slippers waving hello to the neighbors as they left for work this morning.)
So….I got a dog. He’s been here 24 hours and he’s already running the show….I just didn’t see that one coming….

Good Afternoon folks. I wanted to take a moment and note that we realize that many of our readers on the east coast are now digging through that crap in the garage for their diving equipment. I wanted to wish you a safe night and make a point to say that, if you have been told to evacuate…do so. I understand the temptation to stay home and protect things but your life, and the lives of those who would have the task of rescuing you, are at stake here. Sandy looks like a very angry little lady so let’s make sure that we are all safe and warm while she throws her fit. Sending good, positive energy out to all my friends and readers!
