Since my birthday was yesterday, and it’s my blog and I can post what I feel like, today’s post is non-bookish. If you’re not interested in personal content, feel free to pass this one by. This post is about something that is cute and is both a help and a hindrance to my blogging productivity. You’ve seen her in vlogs, and now I’m going to give her a further introduction.
For those who haven’t guessed by now, I’m talking about my yellow lab, Macey, who is five years old. My family adopted Macey from our local humane society in August of 2010, so she’s only been living with us for about six months, but we love her!
If I could use two words to describe this dog, they would be couch potato. She sleeps on the bed with me at night, gets up early for a walk, only to crawl back in once she’s been walked and had her breakfast. However, she motors right along when she’s outside and if you take out a rawhide and run around the house with it she will chase you like her life depends on it.
I know what you’re wondering. Does the dog help me get more or less blogging done? Well, she doesn’t write any of the blog’s content. Sometimes when I spend long afternoons or evenings blogging or curled up with a book, she makes a fantastic foot warmer. On the other hand, I also get slowed done when I have to pause to take her for a walk. Either way, I love having her around.
So there you have it. A little more on my furry companion who I constantly talk about on Twitter and who likes to run through videos. Do you guys have any pets who keep you company while you read and blog?
