Reason #4 Why I Will Never Have a Dog

Imagine the horror. Imagine my shock. Imagine for yourself. Did you know that a "girl" dog has to get her "period" before she can be spayed? Did you know that they sell little doggy panties for that "special" time of the little girl doggy's life? Little. Doggy. Panties. Yep, that's what my friend told me the other day. She just confirmed it on the phone. Have I entered the Twilight Zone? It sort of feels like it.

Sorry, that is not true. They spay dogs as early as 8 weeks. More likely at 6 months, but still several months before they go into heat. Most of those little panty things are for purebred dogs. Hobby breeders use them for dogs that are allowed in the house. Most people just throw their dogs out into the backyard for a week, of course that means a strange dog may find his way into your yard and make little impure half-breed. By the way who is trying to force you to get a dog? Don't want a dog? Don't get one. Pretty simple.

This is my friend's first dog--I will pass along your info to her. Actually no one is trying to force me to get a dog. Boy #2, who is 8, went thru a bad time this summer when 3 of his friends got a dog within 2 weeks. I thought either he or I would have a nervous breakdown--he was so upset. No dogs for me, though. Thanks for the explanation.

Be thankful there is no doggy douche.

The title of this entry should be "Reasons to Justify To My Children Why I'll Die Before I Get A Dog"

My children threw up more and pooped on more home furnishings than my dog ever did. My dog also does not bug me about Mark Jacobs, Steve Madden, Old Navy, Alicia Keys, Playstation.

My dog eats a about a can of dogfood a day. I have no idea where my children get their calories.

My dog does not bug me about driving to the bowling alley, Nora, Brynna, Bonnie, Meryl, the mall, Concord.

It just poops in the woods.

It's Marc Jacobs and Alicia Keyes. MY children do not vomit on me, go to the bathroom on the kitchen floor, whine to be taken for a walk when it's 105 or -20 degrees outside. They do not sniff my crotch or lick my bare feet. That said, I do think other people's dogs are sometimes cute. I just don't want one. I bet your dog is a perfect angel!

I'm so wrong--it is Keys, not Keyes. My bad.
