Dogs and bag quality

It turns out there are substantive differences in the little black bags all dog owners carry. Some are cheap and small, some bigger and more substantive. We had a long discussion about this last night. Yes gross, but not during dinner so the dishes rule did not apply. (For those not in the know, talking about anything gross at dinner earns that speaker the sole ownership of dinner dishes. No one wants that task, so it gets very lively discussion who started what at dinner.) Anyway, Bob’s opinion based on experience is that the big black bags from brengle terrace are the best. Elle thinks grabbing loaded and swinging bags of dog droppings is a great game. And so after a deposit and subsequent pick up, she spends time lunging at the swinging bags. Yuck.
There is a funny story about Bob going to home depot with her. She made into the main aisle before elle needed to take a dump. Some lady came along and looked horrified. Bob immediately started looking through his pockets for a bag, eventually found one, and picked up the mess. As they left in shame, elle kept grabbing at the bag. In desperation he shoved the full bag into his pocket. That was an ugly mess and he’s been embarrassed to take the dog back since.

Author: Heres to ART not Cockroaches

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
