Today is grooming day for all three of the pups. After we drop them off, I always hate returning to our empty, quiet home. I get so used to them being around that I really miss them when they are not here.
I guess there is a bright side to everything, right? Well, at least I get to sit where I want too without a pup snuggled beside me. I could even lay down on the couch if I wanted to without moving a dog or two or telling them to get off of it. I can eat a snack without being surrounded by three beggars with those very sad eyes that say, "gimmy a bite, gimmy a bite". But dang, I do miss them. They have become a huge part of my wife's and my life.
They are usually done and more than ready to come home by noon or one o'clock. I just looked up at the clock and it is only 10:39!! That dang clock is moving awfully slow, or did it stop? OK, I stared at it for awhile and I can see the second hand moving, but the time just seems to be dragging right now. One thing for sure, the three dogs and my wife and I will be glad to have them back where they belong. Now, you all have a great day, you hear?
Update 13:00 - Just got home with the pups in tow. They are now eating their dinner and all is again right in my world.
