Sunny and sweaty from my first Crossfit WOD in a year and a half.
So this happened.
Corona is a 3 year old Cardigan Welsh Corgi mix. Energetic, friendly and will lick any exposed skin.
Poof is a pure bred German Shepard. She is beautiful and shy.
They were a bonded pair at our local shelter, given up because the previous owners moved to housing that didn’t allow pets.
We are excited to have them but very worried right now. They had a very bad first encounter with Bishop; scared him half to death. The shelter told us they had no issues with cats but Poof went right into kill mode when she saw him. She also goes ape-shit over the rabbits in the community when we are out for a walk.
We have moved Bishop’s food, water and litterbox into our room and keep the door shut. He hid under the bed for the first day, and now he wanders around a bit in there. The dogs stay with me so Handsome is able to interact with Bishop upstairs away from them. We are introducing the scent and hoping he calms down so we can re-introduce them in a slower, safer way. We are keeping the dogs in a spare room at night and when we are out, so we open our bedroom door to let Bishop out during those times. He hasn’t taken advantage of freedom yet but I am hoping he is getting there.
We are remaining positive that we will be able to get past this hurdle. It just breaks my heart to see Bishop so out of sorts.
I really really like this song.
corvidae30 was right, the video increases my enjoyment by 1000%.
• I am confined to my couch and my cat refuses to hang out with me.
• The same cat who refuses to let me sleep because he wants me to pet him ALL THE TIME.
• I had to answer the door earlier for a delivery man and he gave me this horrified look.
• I don’t look that bad, do I?
• Bonus! Get well flowers!

There are some points in this piece that I like. I have never been a fan of getting a medal just because you showed up.
As a side, I always perceived that “quote” to mean that if my partner isn’t prepared to accept me when I am low (sad, angry), that they are not worthy of my high. This author has a different view of the sentiment but I do like the main idea.
