Lest my boss accuse me of being an irresponsible pet owner.
I was running 1/2 hour late this morning and was stressing something fierce as I knew I had a ton of stuff to do when she walked in to my office, handed me an article and said "I thought of Buzz when I read this"
A little background on my favorite canine. He's 1/2 Siberian Husky, 1/2 Lab and is rather portly. He's a bit schizophrenic and sheds so much so that I could make another dog from the hair I vacuum up but he's been part of my family since BT (before twins) and I gotta say I rather dig him.
So I began to read the article and quickly surmised that the author thinks that pets that are food focused are that way because their owners are overfeeding them. It went on to give examples about overweight owners leading to overweight pets, owners giving their pets the wrong type of food and owners not exercising their pets enough. WTF ?! Sure I'm not perfect but the delivery of the message just sucked. I mean the least she could have done if she was going to trash my pet parenting skills all to hell was to maybe do it after buying me lunch or hell I would have even settled for a latte. Can you say R-U-D-E ?
So I furiously emailed my sister to tell her how pissed I was and she said "Yeah, she probably feels its ok because you two are friendly with one another."
She's right. And here's the thing , if that's the kind of "subtle" hints I get from "friends" then I don't need ya.
Of course now that its out there I can't just ignore it. Now I feel like I need to sign my dog up for the doggie day spa & fitness center, and give him home cooked meals.
Which given the time and the resources I'd be willing to do it.
So where does that leave us ?
Well ,Ms. Bitchy McProblem Starter (aka Worker Mommy's boss) I think you'd better plan on doing my work while I'm away and taking a pay cut. Yes please just sign that cash right on over to me.
Then, I promise you I'll work my hardest to become the model pet owner just like you *gag*...and *wretch* and *dry heave*.
