So, we have a dog now.
The wife decided it would be good for Ben to have a doggy buddy to bond with.
I can already see the way this is going. I was the one up walking it this morning. I can see I'm going to have to get used to picking up dog poo too. I've not had to do it yet, but somehow, I know it's going to be my job.
I always see those people walking 'their' dog - little shovel in hand - and I always think "Who exactly is the boss of who". Anyone who's picking up poo can't really be the master can they?
Anyway, that person's me now.
