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
