Dog v. Wife

Phill stopped writing on the computer and sat on the couch where White Dragon slept. He rested his head on her flank.

"What are you doing?" I asked.

"Snuggling with my dog before you take her away."

"I'll be gone, too, you know. Shouldn't you be snuggling with me?"

"Well . . . "

"Don't answer that. I don't want to know that you'll miss the dog more than me."

would it make you feel any better to know we had the EXACT same discussion at my house last night? LOL

the dog goes on long walks late at night with me. The dog doesn't ask me to clean the den. The dog will even let me sleep late, (with minor consternation). Let's put things in perspective here.

I would take, and have taken, long late-night walks with you if we had permanent child care. That gets knocked off the list. Also, the dog wakes you earlier than I do and takes up more room on the bed.

I will agree that I do make you help clean up the den. I'm still better. And I cook.
