The great thing about having a dog is how sensitive they can be to your emotions. When I'm sad Theo doesn't try and "fix it" like a man would. He doesn't hover and suffocate me like a woman might. He's just there, and mellow, and extra sweet. I had a pretty rough day today. I ended up just leaving work in the middle of the day because I don't think staying would have been conducive to my staying employed. I left Theo at doggy daycare so he could have his usual exercise and play. But when I picked him up this afternoon, boy was it a pick me up I desperately needed.
Rather than his usual impatient, whimpering self on the car ride home, he was quiet and mellow. He laid right down and was cool with my softly petting him the whole drive home. It was just what I needed. It reminds me of the time I was sick for a whole week a few months ago and Theo was so comforting to me then too.
Theo might be the biggest pain in my arse (bigger than Husband, and that's saying something), but part of what makes Corgis so fun is how they can be such trouble makers one minute, and do something that completely warms you heart the next. Man, I'm such a sucker.
St. Patty's Day Feast - I can't believe how long it's taken me to blog about the food I made during the week of St. Patty's Day! I made such good things that week and such good...
