Puppies for me

I would love to have a dog. But, honestly, what I really want is a part time dog. Or maybe even a rent-a-dog. I wouldn't mind walking one... once, maybe twice a day. But, I'm afraid I do not have what a dog needs. A cat who mostly takes care of herself is my speed. Alas. But a dog would be so much fun to have...

My Roku TV has screensavers that are fun. I found/launched a free aquarium one that I really have enjoyed. I found a puppy one but it's a buck a month and that's just ridiculous. Also a kitten one. Same deal. And then, this morning, when the same fish came on the TV, I thought, well... maybe I could buy a month of puppies. So I did. It was only then that I realized that the $.99 was not 'a month' but a one time, old time app purchase (remember $.99 apps???). So now I'm happily watching puppy pictures.

And speaking of cats... Yesterday, Zoey bugged the crap out of me for food. All damn day, and, when I relented, ate a ton of it. I'm talking wet food. She has a giant bowl of kibble always available. Except last night. I checked the giant bown and it was full of kibble bits. The little pieces that break off. She never eats those. I have no idea why. Her teeth, recently checked, are fine. But still, she always leaves the kibble 'bones'. Sure enough, when I tossed out those pieces and filled the bowl again, she quit begging for wet food. When she hopped up on the counter for breakfast, I dished it out, she took a sniff and wandered off. Ok. so that's the way we're doing it today. Gotcha.

I have no big plans today but as I sit here, there's a lot of little stuff like fix the a/c door insert, put away all the plugs in the pile on the desk, finish sorting out the shelves and empty that big drawer of scraps - either toss them or put the with the Goodwill stuff. I have a top cut out and ready to sew.

So plenty to keep me occupied. And, I think today might be a good day for a nice, long, walk. Maybe I'll go pick up a poke bowl for dinner. Baseball at 4.
