I don't know what it's like to have a child but I imagine that having a dog helps prepare a couple for one. For instance, Josh and I sat around playing the blame game today.
Me: Shio kept me up all night. Josh: Because he's been sitting at home the last three days and has a lot of energy. Me: I would've taken him out to play this morning had he not kept me up by barking at lights outside all night. Josh: That's because you left him at home all day yesterday. Me: But I made sure to run around until he was tired before we went to bed last night. Josh: Maybe you got him all excited before bed so he stayed up all night. Me: *rips hair out*
This conversation was just a no-win situation. For me.
Meanwhile, our lazy Shiba sleeps in until noon today.
