A Bit About Me… I Love Dogs
September 29, 2013 4 Comments
It’s not all fun and games here on the blog… sometimes we have to get a little serious. If all you know about me is that I am really into health and fitness, I assure you there is more. Haha. For instance… I am a big fan of dogs. I really love them all, but I have a huge soft spot in my heart for Boxers. Until recently, I had two of my own Boxers… Ruca and Riley. Ruca passed last December but I still have my 6.5 year old boy Riley. And he is the best guy around. :)
About Me – Dogs
Well, you’re kind of a dog lover or you aren’t. I have always been one as I grew up with them in my life. There is something nice about coming home to someone/something that is absolutely apeshit about seeing you. This gives you the total excuse to go apeshit right back. And I am all over any opportunity to spaz out about something I love, haha.
Riley (also Ruca when she was with us) and I love to go on walks. His favorite thing is to poo exactly 2 minutes into the walk and watch me clean it up. I almost always curse him for waiting till we are in front of a home owner working in his yard or something… but what can I say, Riley likes to embarrass me.
We also love swimming in the ocean. I take him to a little beach nooked between the cliffs nearby and we swim out into the little channel. When the wave comes in, it washes us both to shore in a washing machine like fashion. Then we swim back out. And the people at the beach stare at us like we are idiots.
These days are usually followed by long naps.
Riley has a tough-toy (anything else is destroyed in about 5 minutes) that is affectionately named “Sharky”. As you might have guessed, this toy is a shark… and Riley loves to chase him throughout the house. It’s amazing that something so silly entertains me… but it does.
It’s Saturday, I am sitting on the couch and Riley is sleeping on the couch across from me… and I just felt like blathering about how awesome a dog can be.
He is a good one.
It’s good to be needed… and depended upon. And it’s good to be loved unconditionally. That’s the lesson of the dog, I suppose.
