Dogs are okay

Buffalo Sabres, Tanga

My dog is 7.

My dog is 7.

Yesterday Tanga turned seven. She didnโ€™t seem aware of this. She acted like it was just another day. Perhaps that is good advice. So Iโ€™ve been a dog owner for seven years. Eight years ago if you asked me if I even liked dogs I would have said no. I still donโ€™t I suppose. I tolerate other peopleโ€™s dogs. I like mine and a select few, thatโ€™s pretty much it. Iโ€™ve lived with a cat nearly all my life. Dogs are a much different companion. While I believe I have (and who doesnโ€™t) exceptional cats; dogs, especially Vizslas, offer a level of interaction cats do not. Dogs always greet you with overflowing enthusiasm on Monday, Friday and every day in between. They act like 5 year old boys after two bags of Skittles. Go go go. Owning a dog offers some self-motivation to get off my ass and get outside. Which is begrudingly awesome. I wonder what my weight would be if I didnโ€™t own a dog. Hmm. Yeah. Happy Birthday Tanga, you are alright.

A few posts ago I mentioned my toeโ€™s run in with a door at the spa. Well good times. The toenail fell off this morning. Bleck. Iโ€™m hoping the toe learned something from this experience and does not attempt future run ins with doors. Le sigh. Oh, and no you freaks, no photos.

Iโ€™m feeling pretty tired. Iโ€™m glad it is a short week (really two short weeks in a row!). Iโ€™m hoping to get some down time. Iโ€™ve been using my 360 a bit more recently. It is curious how much streaming content is available on it: movies, series, sports, trailers etc. it is pretty crazy.

The Sabres playoff fate will be determined tonight or Saturday. I think there are pretty slim odds for the Sabres to make it. They need Washington to drop at least one or more points. Go Sabres!
