“I loathe people who keep dogs. They are cowards who haven’t got the guts to bite people themselves.” -August Strindberg
Not only do I enjoy August Strindberg’s works, I LOVE this quote. Because dogs intimidate the CRAP out of me. They are so LOUD. And NEEDY. And they DROOL.
I have spent the last ten years trying to get over my fear and loathing of dogs because some of my favorite people own them.
And to make the matter worse, my son CLEARLY deserves a dog. He tries with our three cats. He chases them here and there, and for a minute, they chase back. Then POOF! They’re gone. And my son is alone, asking: Where’s Juno? Where’s Loki? Where’s Calliope?
So my ten-year-old cats may be in for a surprise in the next few years.
But don’t worry my furry babies, I’ll be cowering in the corner along with you.
