I am an animal lover. There are a couple of Australian Shepherd dogs at work that have been there for 11 years. When they go to their eternal rest, I will probably have to take a bereavement day off.
There are a couple of creatures living in my house that are getting on my last nerve. The cat sheds and pukes everywhere. The dog shits on the patio. She is a constant yapper, which is common for her breed. She also sheds. I am left to clean up after their messes. These animals belong to my daughter-in-law who lives here while the Bastard Jr. finishes school.
They say that animals take after their owners. Shedding – yes, puking – no, constant yapper – check, leaves her shit for me to clean – yep, you got it. OMG son WHAT WERE you thinking? I’m sure it wasn’t about housekeeping issues.
