Yes, I want a dog.
My first and only pet – Travis, the 14-year-old border collie/husky/mutt mix, ran away from home at my mom’s place in North Carolina a few weeks ago. She had been moving slowly for some time, so we assume it was the old-dog-goes-to-the-woods-to-die thing. Mom searched and searched for her for days but couldn’t find her. I still don’t think I’ve accepted it, not really.
But once I actually have a yard again, which could be years from now, I want a huge husky or Australian shepherd. I know people somehow own them while living in an apartment or townhouse, but I guess I’m not prepared for that yet. Travis was an outside dog, and I really like that.
Anyway, I’ve been daydreaming more than usual about owning a big husky, and I can’t get over this video I found on YouTube. You must watch it:
I’m also amused by these videos this week –
