So I took the plunge. I got a dog. Her name is Sambuka, and I love her to bits. She has taken over my whole life, and apartment, but also loves being by herself after a couple of minutes of romping around.
I don’t regret getting her. BUT there are minutes when I get little terror attacks about what I got myself into. I have almost no responsibility, and all of a sudden I have this little heart I need to keep happy and healthy. And I need to be home at least once every 8 hours…
The fact that she is sick makes it difficult too. I look at other mommies walking their dogs, running around like mad cows, but I need to watch my kiddie…who still almost passes out after 15 minutes of walking.
She has such an amazing personality, and I’m sure everyones animals have amazing personalities. Do you guys ever feel a bit overwhelmed? Or scared of what will happen when you return home? Or is it just me?
