My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

Caesar

Caesar was the first dog that my family had ever owned. My husband promised that he would get a dog that doesn't shed because of my allergies. When he bought our chow, I assumed he didn't shed. As he got older, patches of brown hair started to fall out and I was in a panic. Since my husband was at work, I bundled my two daughters in the car and put Caesar in beside them. I just knew that he was dying or had the mange or something else fatally wrong with him. I could have died when my vet told me he was just shedding. I tried to tell him that my husband told me that the dog wouldn't shed and I think the vet thought about having me committed for insanity. Not only was I embarrassed, but I had to pay the vet $35 for him to tell me my dog was shedding! Needless to say, my husband was in the dog house!
