Our Fur-less House

A recent visit to another blog, booshy.wordpress.com, reminded me that we still have zero furry pets.  Now I’ve tried to get DH to buy a dog.  And heaven knows BooBoo REALLY wants, pretty much NEEDS, a dog.  What boy doesn’t after all.  So I’m going to have to put more of an effort into getting said dog. 

Like maybe ultimatums.  Of the variety such as, “Buy the dog by next summer or the kids and I will pick the dog ourselves.  Whether the dog house is built or not.”  They have pre-built dog houses at stores anyway, so it’s not like he wouldn’t have a place to sleep.  Yeah, I’m not sure if I was referring to the dog or the spouse on that one either.

But, I mean, they’ll be 11 & 8 already by then for pete’s sake.  My brother and I had our first dog when I was 7 or 8 and he was 4 or 5.  And a kid growing up without a dog is just wrong.  So thumb screws will be employed if necessary.  We will have our dog!  No matter how many roadblocks we have to run.

I finally understand

"Among those around you, apostolic soul, you are the stone fallen into the lake. With your word and your example, you produce a first circle, and it another, and another, and another, wider each time. Now do you understand the greatness of your mission?" St. Josemarie Escriva: The Way
