My son is about to be 20. He lives in an apartment with two roommates. Currently, he’s unemployed. My son, God love him, wants to work somewhere that he enjoys working. We all do. But when you’re that young, the odds are against you to find a job that you truly enjoy and can make some money at. He’s still searching. He’s planning to return to college this month. This makes me very happy. It shows that he has ambition to better his life and he understands that without an education, his life can be a long and rather rough road.
Lately, my son has been volunteering as a dog-walker at the animal shelter, which my biological middle sister(that I do not willingly claim as family) is the director of. One day he found a white Akita to walk. He fell in love with this dog. His girlfriend was with him and she liked her too. The plan was for the dog to be for his girlfriend, but in the beginning she was staying at my son’s apartment. His roommates got a bit upset when she peed on the floor and demolished one of their pillows. My son found himself fighting with his roommates.
I knew he really liked this dog, so I offered to let him keep her in my backyard. She’s been here going on two weeks. I had to bring my two dogs in the house because she’s a bit domineering. They don’t take to her too well, so that was the best solution. I was keeping my garage open to her, but she was pulling things into the backyard and destroying them. When I found that, I quickly shut my garage off to her. When it rains, the middle of my backyard becomes like soup. It rained quite a bit last week. The sun finally came out Sunday of this week, so the yard started drying up. Unfortunately, temps dropped into the 20s overnight and that put an end to that. When it’s wet outside, her white coat isn’t so white around her legs. This morning I found that she has attempted to chew on the coax cable on the outside of my house. This is not good because if she chews through it, I’ll have to get the cable company out to replace it and I will not be a happy camper. Hopefully, things will settle down with the pup. I hope so!
