[Dogs] The joy of picking up poop in small plastic bags
Part of having a dog is becoming part of a select group of people... nay, not just mere humans, but elites:
People who talk about their dogs with other people who have dogs. Especially at the work place.
This thread is for talking about the joy of having something furry and alive that loves you unconditionally, thinks you were gone for uncountable eons when you just went to check the mail, thinks every new occurrence is quite near the best thing ever, and will run into your leg at full speed and not remember it 5 seconds later*. Or maybe its about the joy of picking up poop in small plastic bags, that special brand of stupid and smart that causes them to try to eat practically anything, or sad stories about your dog that loved you unconditionally right until the end.
So... This is Eisley**, and he is my dog. I love him. He was adopted about 8 months ago now after likely being abused/neglected.
Spoilered for being rather depressing/rage inducing:
He was apparently thrown out of a car on the highway and was taken to the adoption agency by the people who almost ran him over.
He was rather nervous at first, but acclimated to us rather quickly. He was then really nervous around new people... but now hes really curious and tries to trip them by smelling their shoes while they are walking. Its an amazing thing to have this little living thing who's daily high point is me coming home. Probably because hes hungry... he pretty much only eats when both my fiance and I are around.
* This happened this morning. I love my dog - hes full of dumb. <3
** Yes. A wretched hive of scum and villainy.
