My dogs need attention, they’ve always had it because there is always someone with them. I’m always here with them on weekdays, not having a job works in my dog’s favor and we, very rarely, leave them all alone here for a long time. They know that when I’m the only one here, they are mostly the center of my attention. They only have to compete with my computer, tablet or cellphone and they usually win. But because they know they’re pretty much the center of attention, they have to have it, and they don’t like it when they don’t get attention.
This morning I was in my room and I suddenly heard some crying. I looked at the hallway and there they were, Indy and Sandy, both sitting and looking at me giving me a look like what’s taking so long? Sandy also making that sad howl, which pretty much was the dog translation to come.
Yes, they were manipulating me, making me feel bad for not being with them yet; it was not even 9 a.m. and I was still washing my face, but I can’t be mad at them for wanting me to be in the living room with them. No one will ever be waiting to say hello to you or spend time with you with so much happiness as dogs do. When you see your pets just sitting there, looking at you like come on, what’s taking you so long, you cannot have a doubt that they love you just as much as you love them.
I don’t know what they did to my heart but I have become more soft than I already was. My mom says I’m strict but I just want the best for them and don’t want them to eat everything in the street when we take them for a walk, but I just want to keep them safe. Now that I have them, I can’t imagine not having them in my life right now.
