As I said, the dog trainer was here on Wednesday. In addition, our microwave quit–we depend on our microwave quite a bit. Lion decided we needed to replace it immediately, so he ordered one online for pickup that night. As soon as I was done with work, I went to get the microwave and pick up dinner. I decided the new rules for the dog would start the next day.
Thursday, I started changing things for the dog. I was working, but the way she’s fed and other commands were relatively simple to do. We (read that as “I”) have to clean up her toys, put them away and only bring one out to play with her. That toy is put away after we’re done playing. Lion and I think this is too strict. We decided to leave one or two toys out for her all the time. Otherwise, she’ll go after our shoes. Again, I was working. Lion asked if I could do the crate training after work, and I agreed.
This morning, the dog was bringing toy after toy to me so we could play. Lion said he thought I had put the toys away. I said I was working and hadn’t done it yet. To which he said, “It won’t work if you don’t put her toys away. What were you thinking?” Excuse me? What was I thinking? I told him I thought I was working and then crate training her. When did I have time to put the toys away? Ironically, Lion says he’s less dependent on me for day-to-day help. I think I’m still doing most things. But, apparently, I don’t know what I’m thinking.
Also, ironically, I should be working right now, but I’m trying to get this down while it’s still fresh in my mind. I’m annoyed. What was I thinking? Right now, I’m thinking Lion just earned himself another spanking.
