Thoughts for Thursday - Working and playing dog owner...is this what my life has become!?!

Well I got up this morning and did it all over again...well not quite. Wednesdays are killer days since I have to leave for the office at O'Dark Thirty. Hence no time for wine or whining. So today was much better, the sun was actually up when I took Tucker for our morning constitutional. I remember when I slept in until 7am or so every morning...sigh. Today I stayed in the north end of town to do evaluations. But tomorrow it's back to dropping off Tucker at the Doggie Day Spa...I mean Daycare...and racing across town in rush hour traffic to get to the office for meetings.

Fortunately, my first meeting is scheduled for 10am...so I can actually be leisurely about it. Whenever the salary position starts, the 8 hour work days start. Of course when you factor in the drive time it's closer to 10 hours if I'm down on the south end of town where the office is. On the other hand, with all the locations we serve, I'm not expected to actually go to the office everyday...whew! I probably would have inquired about part time just avoid that drive on a daily basis.

In doggie news, Tucker had his next round of shots. I thought they were his last round, but apparently not. His last set is in three weeks and in about 45 days, he'll be losing his doggie malehoodness. I'm sure that will be so much fun. I scheduled that for a Monday so I could put him in the Doggie Day Spa...I mean Daycare for convalescing during the week. Of course that won't work so well on Wednesday. Maybe I'll call in sick. Do they give doggie sick days?

Well, my life was rather mundane before, but with occasional sparks. Now it's downright boring. I work and I take care of a puppy...and I blog occasionally. What's up with my life...sheesh, I'm feeling old.

I was thinking the same thing this morning on my doggies walk. That I'm feeling old and my life is boring. I also started thinking if that I am just going to have to get used to the idea that I'm going to live out the rest of my life single...

Life isn't boring, routines are good..its how you spice up the routines that make each day different. Poor Tuck...hes gonna be a little under the weather when the "manhood" is snipped away....make sure you pamper him extra after that happens.

Yen...noooooo, I'm not a mom...lol

J...he'll be convalescing at the Doggie Day Spa for a week, how much more pampering does he need!?! Heh.

You just have to adjust to the rhythm… the job, the puppy… I’m sure your mundane life will reprise pretty soon…
Poor Tucker… I still don’t see why you have to neuter him :P
Are you sure you don’t want to have grand-puppies in the future?? lol

Gentleman...neutered puppies are less aggressive (not really an issue with tiny Tucker though). Neutered puppies have cheaper licenses, but most importantly they are allowed in the dog park!!! Of course, I'll have to go to the dog park early in the day when the big dogs aren't there.
