Lesson Learned.

July 15, 2011 · 16 comments

These past few days have been learning days.

Lesson #1: When you don’t have a phone, bad things will happen.

A pitbull lives next door to me. Said pitbull decided on Tuesday that it would be cool to reach under the fence and maul the paw of my dog-sitter’s great dane. My dad called me in a panic. It was not an awesome day to not have a phone.

Chloe was thankfully unharmed in all this commotion, but is definitely doggy blood in my backyard. Not so cool.

Lesson #2: When you are without phone for a week and have resorted to texting on your old iTouch, you will quickly learn you suck at touch-screen texting.

Fact: things can get awkward with Autocorrect.

Lesson #3: No matter how many cutesy toys you buy your dog, she may always defer to empty Powerade bottles and the towel that belongs in her crate.

See the above picture of her if you don’t believe me. Proof.

Which makes my backseat look like a recycling bin.

Do you wanna kick it in the backseat?

Lesson #4: Leaving a bag of gummies in your car in 90 degree heat is a bad idea.

Unless you want one massive gummy mound, that is.

These were purchased for Rob for his birthday. And I know how he rolls, so he probably will still enjoy this.

Don’t be mad, Rob. There’s so much genuine joy in that picture. I had to include it.

Just consider this payback for your not showing up on Wednesday night to claim your birfday prize. :-D

Lesson #5: There will never be a day when I’m not PSYCHED for this girl to come visit me.

Want that in my life always, need that in my life always.

See you in a few hours for some more fun Virginia Beach activities, Daner.

Caaauuse when are things dull when we’re together?

Dear Abbster, we will celebrate your birthday for you. Cause we love and miss you.

WAHHH I wanna see Dana! Please tell her I am sad that I won’t! :( I need some serious hair whipping in my life. MEEEEEEEH! Chloe is so cute.. what you said about her reminds me of my brother (OOPS HAHA) bc when he was little he had so many toys but would play with the TV Guide for HOURS.

NOOOOO That pitbull is giving the breed a bad name! I have a pit bull and he is the sweetest most loving dog in the entire world.

I hate that, too. my old roommate had a pitbull whom I loved. apparently, his owner reinforces his vicious behavior… he encourages him to kill animals that enter his yard (cool that I knew that, and all…)

I totally gave up on buying Koda any toys. She always prefers sticks anyways :)

Haaaa whenever a blog post says “fact” or “truth” of “false” abrubtly, i always think of Dwight from the office. So i guess this means that i find your posts super entertaining. Except for the part about the pitball. That makes my heart sooooooo sadddd!!! I have a big spot in my heart for great danes!

Ahhhh noooo! Her poor pup! I love that dog, but it is the biggest thing I have ever seen. It was like the dog came out of Animal Planet and grew. Beeee tee dubs, if he doesn’t want those gummies I WILL TOTALLY EAT THEM

My dog is the exact same way–she LOVES water bottles and insists on begging for them every time anyone is drinking out of one.
