My Latch Key Child
I am not perfect, nor do I pretend to be. I can admit that I have selfishly lived a hectic lifestyle since becoming single. Between gym workouts, tennis matches, and non-stop weekend merriment, I am barely home.
Everytime I see my Ex out, he says... "those poor dogs". I used to think he was trying to make me feel guilty, so I'd go home and he would have New Orleans all to himself. Now I find myself agreeing with him.
Boudreaux and Pierre are exhibiting signs that they are not getting enough attention. It breaks my heart thinking how they have already reached half their life expectantcy. They deserve a higher quality of life.
I have made a vow to make some changes. I'll devote much more time to my furry children. Instead of being lazy and letting them run in their backyard, I'll take them on walking adventures. Hell, I may even let them roam free on the farm sometimes (under close supervision).
This coming weekend will bring an excellent opportunity to take my children on a mini-vacay. I am house sitting for a couple, who have a nice backyard complete with a pool and deck. We can take long walks in a different environment and play in the pool all weekend. I would love to see Boudreaux and Pierre swim again... it's been years!
Love your pets dearly. They only have a limited time here on Earth. Let's focus less on ourselves and give our pets the attention they deserve!
