I'm dog sitting again, a different dog, for a different friend.
The dog's very sweet, and very needy.
And I'm too willing to be distracted from the 30 or more things I really need to get done. As in now.
Here's how much of a dog person I am. I made a play date and brought my neighbor's dog (my guest, often) over, and the two played hard for about an hour. They'd slowed down considerably after about 40 minutes; I'd brought them inside and they'd wrestled, and then they'd slowed down. So I took them back outside and that reenergized them both.
They're both biggish and active dogs, with good outdoor coats, so they were doing that submarine in the snow thing, rolling around. It must feel good on their coats.
And now my current guest dog is having a nap beside me, and I'm goofing off, but I need to stop and accomplish some real work today. Now.
