I love dogs

My Dogs Live Here
by Unknown Author

My dogs live here, they're here to stay.
You don't like pets, be on your way.
They share my home, my food, my space.
This is their home, this is their place.

You will find dog hair on the floor,
they will alert you're at the door.
They may request a little pat,
a simple "no" will settle that.

It gripes me when I hear you say:
“Just how is it you live this way?
They smell, they shed, they're in the way!”
"Who asked you?" is all I can say.

They love me more than anyone.
My voice is like the rising sun;
they merely have to hear me say
“C'mon, it's time to go and play!”

Then tails wag and faces grin,
they bounce and hop and make a din.
They never say “no time for you."
They're always there, to go and do.

And if I'm sad?
They're by my side.
And if I'm mad?
They circle wide.

And if I laugh,
they laugh with me.T
hey understand,
they always see.

So once again, I say to you
"Come visit me, but know this, too:
My dogs live here, they're here to stay.
You don't like pets, be on your way.

They share my home, my food, my space.
This is their home, this is their place."

Random update on my life

Nothing especially exiting has happened lately, so here's a random update on my life:

Last week was especially busy at work, and I had one of those weeks where, although I was extremely busy, I got absolutely nothing accomplished. I worked hard all week, and always seemed to be doing something, but it was research, or waiting on answers from another party, so I didn't actually get to close the file on anything. I really want a "Completed" stamp so that I can mark completed files...but then I got to thinking, it might be depressing to buy that stamp because it feels like I don't complete anything!

Ooh, last week I got a new Blackberry, which was exciting. I sold my lame Blackjack II because the Windows operating system is completely unreliable, and I bought a new Blackberry Curve 8310 on Craigslist. I decided to download the Facebook for Blackberry application, which may have been a mistake - I check it ALL the time now. On the one hand, that's good, because I don't have to log in on the computer and spend time that I don't have updating my status or checking on friends. On the other hand, it's bad because I'm always updating my status via Facebook mobile and am sort of manically checking my blackberry for posts/updates/etc.

I got my hair cut again last week (I just tried to take a picture so you could see it, but the lights in my office are horrible and I look too bad). When I first cut it after the wedding, it was blunt and cut straight across. My hair is too pouffy for the haircut that I had in mind, so I'm going more a-line bob this time. Apparently I cut my hair too short the first time, so now I have to grow it out a bit, in order to cut the back shorter, so it'll be a-line. Yeesh.

Saturday we took Bruiser to the vet for his one-year shots. That was an experience. He hasn't been to the vet since his puppy shots were finished, and we took him to a different vet this time because the last one was crap. Bruiser has this thing now where he barks at new people and does not like them to pet him; however after five minutes or so he's your best friend. Our vet had a VERY deep monotonous voice, and apparently Bruiser didn't like it. First he growled, then...he tried to bite the vet. Yep, my vicious little wiener dog - what an oxymoron. Needless to say, they had to use a muzzle, and he used a leather one. Bruiser looked like a mini-Hannibal Lector! It was so sad, but at the same time, hilarious, and I wish I'd taken a picture. Shots, a check on his ear and an exam brought us near $200. Yikes. Next month he loses his baby-nuggets, as my dear Husband calls them. Hopefully after that he loses some of his aggression towards new people; after he heals we're going back to training.

Really, all this rambling and nothing exciting actually happened last week. Pretty sad.
