This, my sweets, is what I hope for on a daily basis. She is absolutely and completely exhausted.
I am on ‘vacation’ this week – spending time with my family all together under one single roof. And we’ve mixed together all three dogs, for the very first time. This leads to a lot of excitement. A lot of barking (Lucy). A lot of anxiety (Signe). A lot of a very big dog (Shadow).
We got to this little slice of heaven on Christmas evening, and even after a good night’s sleep, a good morning’s nap, and half of an afternoon’s snooze, Signe was STILL asleep on the couch – I think we FINALLY wore her out.
So. I’m thinking again about getting a second dog.
And mostly I’m thinking about how exhausting it would be and that, for the most part, we’re just not ready for that kind of excitement!
