I GET A PUPPY
 



MY PUPPY MAY 20 2010 SLAMBANG 

DOG AND I HAVE BEEN TOGETHER SINCE OCTOBER. SUPPOSEDLY HE WAS ABOUT NINE
WEEKS OLD WHEN I GOT HIM FROM THE HUMANE SOCIETY. HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN A 
PROBLEM WITH HIS INDEPENDENT ATTITUDE. HE ONLY FOLLOWS COMMANDS IF HE 
WANTS TO, UNLESS HE IS ON A LEASH.  THIS HAS WORRIED ME QUITE A BIT. I 
BOUGHT AND ELECTRIC FENCE TO KEEP HIM ON MY PROPERTY. THEN HE DECIDED 
TO BARK WITHOUT STOPPING, SO I BOUGHT A BARK COLLAR. 

ONE DAY I TOOK HIM WITH ME TO PAY THE WATER BILL AND WHEN WE GOT TO THE
BUILDING AND I STARTED TO GET OUT OF THE CAR, HE JUMPED OVER ME AND RAN 
OFF ACROSS THE STREET  NO AMOUNT OF CALLING OR COAXING COULD GET HIM 
BACK. AFTER QUITE A SPELL , I GOT TIRED OF HIM BEING SO CRAPPY AND 
DROVE OFF. 

I HADN'T GONE VERY FAR WHEN I LOOKED IN MY REAR VIEW MIRROR AND THERE HE
WAS RUNNING ALONG BEHIND ME. I STOPPED AND HE RAN AWAY AGAIN. SO I 
DROVE OFF AGAIN AND SOON HE WAS RUNNING BEHIND, IN FRONT OF AND ALONG 
SIDE THE CAR. THIS CONTINUED UNTIL WE ARRIVED HOME. IT WAS A LONG DRIVE 
AND I AM SURE HE WAS POOPED OUT WHEN WE GOT HOME.  SINCE THEN, I HAVE  
NEVER TAKEN HIM ANYWHERE EXCEPT TO THE VET FOR HIS CHECK-UPS AND THEN I 
ALWAYS HAVE HIM ON A LEASH. 

WELL LAST WEEK I WENT TO THE NURSERY AND BOUGHT THREE GORGEOUS TOMATO
PLANTS AND THREE LARGE YELLOW, (MY FAVORITE COLOR FOR ) MARIGOLDS  THE 
NEXT DAY I PLANTED THE TOMATO PLANTS, SAVING THE MARIGOLDS FOR LATER. 
THE NEXT MORNING, I WENT OUT AND MY TOMATO PLANTS HAD BEEN DUG UP AND 
DESTROYED AND NOT ONLY THAT BUT A CERTAIN DOG HAD BEEN IN MY GARAGE AND 
GOT MY MARIGOLDS, POT AND ALL, CARRIED THEM OUT INTO THE YARD AND 
DESTROYED NOT ONLY THE MARIGOLDS , BUT ALSO THE PLASTIC POTS IN WHICH 
THEY WERE  PLANTED. I WAS SO DISCOURAGED AND ANGRY I DECIDED THE DOG 
WOULD HAVE TO GO. THEN THIS MORNING, I DISCOVERED HE HAD USED MY DINING 
ROOM AS A RESTROOM. 

AFTER I CLEANED UP THE RUG, DECIDED I HAD ENOUGH.THIS DOG AND THAT HE
AND I WERE NEVER GOING TO MAKE IT, SO,  HE GOES BACK TO THE POUND AND I 
WILL BE HERE ALONE AGAIN, BUT AT LEAST I WILL NOT HAVE A “BUMP OF 
DESTRUCTION” IN MY LIFE. I WILL MISS THE DOG BECAUSE I LOVE HIM, BUT I 
JUST CAN'T HANDLE THE TROUBLE HE CAUSES ME. 

TODAY IS SUNDAY AND THE DOG POUND IS NOT  OPEN, BUT TOMORROW WE WILL BE
GOING BACK. I KNOW I WILL MISS HIM BECAUSE HE WAS A LOVER, BUT HE WAS 
ALWAYS LOOKING FOR THINGS TO DESTROY AND IT SEEMS THE THINGS HE 
DESTROYS ARE ALWAYS THE THINGS I VALUE.  MAYBE HE WILL FIND A HOME WITH 
SOMEONE WHO WILL LOVE HIM AND BE WILLING TO OVERLOOK HIS SHORT 
COMMINGS. 

MONDAY : WELL I WAS AS GOOD AS MY WORD . I TOOK BUDDY BACK TO THE DOG
POUND AND LEFT HIM THERE AND CAME BACK HOME. I FOOLED AROUND THE HOUSE, 
BUT IT JUST WASN'T THE SAME AND THEN I BEGAN TO WORRY ABOUT “ BUDDY” 
AND WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN TO HIM. I KNEW IF NO ONE ADOPTED HIM HE WOULD BE 
PUT TO SLEEP AND THE MORE I THOUGHT ABOUT THAT THE MORE I FELT BADLY. 

FINALLY, I COULDN'T STAND IT ANY MORE SO I WENT BACK TO THE POUND A GOT
BUDDY AND BROUGHT HIM HOME WITH ME. HE HADN'T CHANGED A BIT.  HE IS 
STILL THE SAME INDEPENDENT CUSS HE ALWAYS WAS, STILL DESTRUCTIVE , BUT 
ALSO AT THE SAME TIME HE STILL IS A LOVER AND I GUESS I AM A SOFTIE, 
BUT I CAN'T TAKE HIM BACK TO THE POUND. I SUPPOSE HE WILL BE MY BAD 
“PENNY” AND I WILL BE STUCK UNTIL ONE OF US DOES TO THE PLACE OF 
ETERNAL PUNISHMENT. 

I HOPE HE DOESN'T GET THERE THE SAME TIME I DO.
