WARNING: THIS POST MIGHT OFFEND SOME OF THE ANIMAL LOVERS OUT THERE! I AM JUST EXPRESSING MY OWN OPINION AND THAT IS OKAY BECAUSE IT IS MY BLOG! I am back from an amazing week of doing NOTHING, except what I wanted to do. So great! I do have one thing I need to talk about and I hope not to offend any of you. READ THE WARNING ABOVE!!! This past week we stayed at a great resort, but I was a little perplexed when we were eating at the cute little cafe on the property when I saw a waiter bringing in a dog dish. Now, I am all for using creative dishes to make a statement, but a dog dish? Upon further investigation I found that this was an animal friendly resort. There were labs in the lobby, and puppies by the pool...thank goodness there were no boarder collies nipping at every one's heels. Oh... my! I am so not an animal lover. I was relieved to find that there are never dogs allowed in building 1 and that was where our room was. There were some people that were totally freaked out about the whole animal thing. One lady that was at conference and in a building other than 3 could have sworn she had flea bites all over her body. I don't know if that was the case, but I was very glad to be in blg. #1. I am not an animal hater or tortuter or anything and as long as they aren't around me I am okay. I have three kids that I think are really cute, but I don't expect everyone in the world to agree with me... that it how it is with dogs. I don't want to love on someone else's dog... It might be cute, but I don't want it to touch, sniff, or lick me. I will keep my kids at bay if they keep their dogs to themselves too. All of my dog owning friends know that I am a little hesitant to see their dogs... Heck- Tonia even has an over the top dressed dog with a decorated room, but I still don't want to love it.. or really even like it. The powers that be are having their revenge on me , for I have a little girl that is desperate for a dog. She loves stufffed dogs and her #1 DS game is Nintedogs... The other day she was watching TV and she was crying. I wondered what was wrong and she was emotional over the Sarah McLaughlin commercial encouraging you to be some dog's angel and adopt one. She told me the one eyed dog needed us to rescue it. I wanted to tell her that it had already been put to sleep, but I just said, " Oh.. honey... Jackson and I are allergic to dogs. I am sure some really great home adopted the one eyed dog and loves it so much." Infact, the adoptive family loves it so much the took it to a 5 star resort on Coronado Island. That is where I was and this is how I stand...Sorry all you PITA bloggers. Please do come back soon... I once let my kids have a fish- Just don't ask why we still don't have it. I am not a Michael Vick, but I just don't love animals.... Sorry!
