Vince is always telling me “You’ve ruined this dog!” because Oscar really loves me and gets so excited when I come into the room or play with him. I’ve explained to Vince that I’m the one who feeds Oscar; I take Oscar out; we have little bedtime chats before I put Oscar up for the night; I’m the one who gets him out of the kennel in the morning; we go for our morning walk. Oscar loves Vince too and he’s fine with Vince when I’m out of the house.
Today I had a three hour dentist appointment so I was gone from home probably four hours. I came home and I was wearing a jacket but I still looked like me. Oscar came running up to me, barking like he was going to bite me, hair raised up on his back, then he ran back like he was afraid of me. Then back at me barking again. I was saying “Oscar . . it’s me! Come here!”
After just a minute or so, he realized it was me, ran up to me and was so excited I was home, he peed on my shoe and on the floor. Thank goodness again, it was the tile floor so . . once again, I got to mop the floor with Clorox.
Sometimes I wonder if that dog is right!
