Too Many Dogs
I’m acutely aware that we have more dogs “than average”. I might even be willing to admit, a lot more. It’s old hat for us by now. These beasts have been incorporated into our lives for so long, I hardly even notice. When I do sit up and pay a little attention, there are definitely some tell tale signs.
You know you may have too many dogs when…
This has taken up residence in your office, and is now your early morning companion.
Somehow having just 1 bag of kibble on hand is no longer enough.
There are entire shelves dedicated to products you, personally, would never use.
Baskets with contents like this.
Not enough baskets, so auxiliary stashes abound.
Stacking dog beds seems like a completely reasonable idea, and has in fact become preferred by your dogs.
This is considered normal carnage.
This, while not normal carnage, is not completely out of the realm of possibility. After all, his ball was stuck under the couch. It doesn’t even worry you that much. That’s why you have a ‘dog couch’, with a stash of blankets at the ready for strategic placement.
Consider yourself warned. If any of these things are happening at your house, you may have too many dogs. Hold on tight and enjoy the ride.
