Sigh

I really miss my dog today.

Maggie went missing almost a month ago and as I sit here in an empty house I really miss my dog. All she really did during the day was sleep, either on the floor next to the couch or on the end of the couch when I put her up there. I'd let her out during the day and then she'd go right back to sleep when she came back inside. At night, she'd sleep in my room. She wasn't a playful dog, really she wasn't a typical dog at all, but she was really good company.

I miss that. I miss having that presence with me. Barrington Saddlery cut my hours, I'm only working three days a week now and while I go to the barn on every day off that only takes up three, four hours of my day. There's not much else to do in Woodstock and I don't really have the spending money anymore to go out places.

It'd be nice to have a dog around, to bring with me to a barn, to sit on the couch with me again. Maybe if I worked full time again I wouldn't care about having a dog. I'd have something to do, keep myself busy but it's not like that. I'm stuck at home three days a week with a cat who spends all her time upstairs ignoring me. I'd like to have a friend again.

Dogs really do make all the difference, it's odd, huh? I've always had them in my life somehow.

Maybe you could go to the ASPCA?

There are plenty of shelters around here and dogs I'd love to meet and see if they're a good fit but my parents don't want another dog.

What's the big deal if it was your dog? Clearly it's hurting you and you're responsible enough to take care of it yourself :/

I live at home that's the big deal. They don't want a dog in the house.
