Talk to the Paw: The Sound of Silence

    It would be hard to focus with all that barking, and once the dog becomes part of your life, you’re hooked forever because you love the crazy critters no matter what.

    I’m just counting my blessings at the moment because the new neighbors don’t have a dog. Once again you remind me I’m better off with a kitty or two.

      Well, I’d be perfectly content with my kitties. It was my husband who wanted another dog after our other one passed away. He wanted a border collie puppy and Kinsey is the closest I could find at the time (she’s half border collie, half pit bull). I love her to pieces, but there are days I want to drop her off at doggy daycare just to get some peace and quiet. It’s like having a toddler 24-7. My husband calls her a “feral pig” because of her snorting and fondness for rolling in the dirt.

    Oh Karen, this made me laugh. I too love complete silence when I write– just the hum of appliances or wind. Recently we got my son a puppy and the older dog, Blue just doesn’t like it. Oh the barking and ruckus that ensues. Long gone is my peace.
