Where’ve you been?


Rubywater

If you’ve missed my posts, I am sorry for the protracted absence.

My family recently added a new member and she has been a drain on my energy. It takes a lot out of me in the effort to take a lot out of her. We have been pretty diligent in the walking the dog department trying to sap her energy reserves by walking her roughly 4.5 miles per day.

That may not sound like much, but when you haven’t walked much in the last several years–especially in 90 degree heat–it can take a lot out of you.

When she is tired, she’s a bit less bitey (my word) and that is what we’re going for here.

She’s been kind of a blessing, too. I have been pretty depressed lately about a litany of things and she kind of makes it seem okay to an extent.

When I walk through the door and she races to greet me, her little tail wagging, feverishly licking my hand and rolling around like a pinball makes me smile. I’m grateful that someone (and, yes to me she is a someone) is that happy that I came home.

I don’t know if her attention is a cure all, but for now it will have to do.

The picture at the top of the post is her attempting to drink and cool herself simultaneously. That’s it for now. I’ll catch y’all later.

About Todd Fuller

After a really long search, I found work that I feel is more relevant to my degree--technical writing. While it's not what I initially envisioned doing, it's actually been very enjoyable and rewarding work. I guess I feel like there is still more out there to do, so I've decided I will try the whole blogging thing again and resurrect this site. If anyone's still out there, enjoy and feel free to comment.

  1. animals have been shown to be very therapeutic. that’s why they use them as therapy dogs in treating patients in hospitals, nursing homes, etc. And as far as curing the “bitey”, have you tried giving her rawhide chews? I’ve found that those can help with the chewing and biting.
