I’ve got a church thing that’s blowing up a little bit, and I should be calling people and asking them for money for my job, and I also should be working on my Monday Malayalam review, but I don’t want to do any of that! I want to look at pictures of Dog Hazel. And if you feel the same way, this is the post for you. Or, you can go look at the last post and comment over there. The point is, I need procrastination buddies!
I took Dog Hazel up to my parents’ house again this weekend, which she mostly loves because she can walk all over and smell new things and explore, instead of being trapped in my 4 room apartment.
(See her little tail moving so fast it cannot be seen?)
She’s been here before, but needs to look around and re-acquaint herself every time, just in case something important has changed.
But she does still need to check in with me as she moves around the house just to make sure she isn’t doing anything wrong.
And sometimes just kind of come over and sit in front of me to make sure I don’t forget about her in the echoing giantness of a 2 floor house with a porch.
And then of course all her worst fears were realized because we invited over small children and strangers and had to lock her up at the end of the hall, far far away from her People.
She kept up and determinedly starring the whole time just in case we came back for her.
My Dad claims he saw her lay down once, but I never saw it.
Anyway, the guests finally couldn’t take it and made us let her out so they could all fuss over her, which was exhausting in a different way. And then she only got a few minutes to relax before I had to drag her out of bed and throw her in the car for the drive home. Which is why Dog Hazel has spent the past 30 hours (and counting!) like this, finally home in her own big pink bed. Which, to be fair, is also what I feel like after a hectic trip and hosting:
