I don’t think there was a dog in the world who received more treats than Shiva yesterday. With a four and a half hour agility workshop, followed by our first Canine Good Neighbour prep class, she ate almost an entire batch of turkey fudge. Despite all that noming of stinky cookies, by the time we’d finally made it home and were munching on a nine o’clock dinner, Shiva was still hungry enough to beg for pizza. It blows my mind.
Understandably, we humans are pretty exhausted today. Shiva isn’t of course. While she did pass out pretty quickly last night by six this morning she was jumping around the house, eager to share her craziness with the world. Some days I just don’t know if it is possible to tire her out. The more hyperactive she is, the more sleepy I feel. It’s almost as if she is stealing my energy. It doesn’t seem fair we have to drag ourselves to work while she gets to nap all day at home.
If she wasn’t so cute, I’d be feeling rather resentful right now.
For once, the weekend didn’t entirely centre around the dog. We even managed to plant a sort-of garden. I hope The Accidental Olympian is proud.
