It never really bothered me when people referred to me as a 'crazy cat lady,' until I got a dog. See, I'm a pet parent, not a cat hoarder or a dog owner. I'm the caregiver, nurturer, educator, provider, and companion to two lovely living beings. They just happen to have four paws and require a few extra accommodations in the potty training department. But if you think I own them, then you are sorely mistaken- after all, who wipes my hiney when I do the walk of shame back from the potty patch? Yes, I'm a firm believer that family is what you make it, and my furkids are my family. Sure, one day we'll add some 2 legged pooping machines to the mix but, for now at least, we're quite content parenting children that won't require student loans and college funds.
When we brought Nora home she was about 5 months, and expected not to grow much more. To my relief, she did grow, but mostly in length. She is a very slender dog that holds her stature quite well in hair. Nora weighs 4.8lbs on a 'hefty' day. She's certainly not the smallest dog I've seen but she's tiny enough to give me a complex whenever shes underfoot, or out and about. While she is always nudging me to get out of the house and be more active, to burn calories, I am always trying to put some meat on her bones and 'fatten' her up.
What Daughter Says: Our dogher nudges us constantly to get out, be more active, and smile more. Nudge your pets back accordingly.
Summer is here and we're sharing all the fun with our fur children. Our #morkie nudges us to get out and do more, so we can live healthier and longer.
