even in the rain


i love dogs
i do

every so often
tell my husband
we should get a dog

after easter weekend
after spending the afternoon
with
our friend's two fabulous dogs
we both admitted a dog would be great

but

as 
he put it
we have one cat too many

truth is
its not
 just
 the cats

its
tiny
apartment

its
having to walk them
can 
be a good thing

and 
not
 so
 good thing

i mean
i would have to get up at 4
to 
walk the dog
so 
i could feed the cats by 5
in order
to 
get to the office by 7

i shudder even thinking about it

then
 there's weather

dogs 
may not like
the freezing cold
of winter
the heat/humidity 
 of summer
yet
 they
 need
 to go out

even in the rain

  1. And cats can stay alone if you need to be gone even a couple of days. Not so dogs!

  2. It can be tricky fixing life with dogs - but oh, I'd hate to be without them! Nice shot.

  3. It seems to me you need to be a really devoted dog lover to have one in NY city.

  4. When you gotta go... I sometimes feel sorry for myself not being able to get a dog, but what kind of a life would he have with me gone for months at a time. It's hard enough with the cats. (sigh) Wish there was an easy answer.

  6. Yeah. I love dogs too, but I keep thinking about how much more work they are than cats.
