Yesterday morning, T.H. made a casual comment to me that “We have 3 too many dogs now”. I wonder which dogs he considers superfluous? Obviously he hasn’t read my blog post about too many or not enough dogs in which I fully explained my logic. My magical thinking that turns 5 dogs into 1.
I’m pondering on which ones he considers superfluous. (Not really. I know. I just don’t care.) Here is the context of the conversation that produced that casual comment:
Between us we have 4 adult children. They have dogs. The kids are all self supporting living on their own (mostly). We do not to have any “Boomerang Kids”. We have “Boomerang Dogs”.
Boomerang Dog #1: Misti. My baby girl went to college 6 years ago. Misti is still here. She did ask for her back last year. I said no.
Boomerang Dog #2: Willie. T.H.’s Baby Girl goes to college last year. Willie moves in. 3 months later she asks for her dog back. I said “THANK GOD!! ” Willie wore out his welcome before he ever arrived. He is the canine equivalent of that “weirdo cousin or uncle” that you have to include because he’s family. But he wears out his welcome by all of his inappropriate behavior, lack of intelligence. Like barking, chasing cats, tearing up everything.
Boomerang Dog #3: Patch. #1 Son’s dog. Patch actually used to be my dog. He didn’t work out for cattle. I gave him to #1 Son after we lost his dog whilst dog-sitting (don’t ask).
It seems that T.H.’s 3 kids are all moving into a place together in Colorado. Unfortunately (for me) their landlord only allows 2 dogs. I do the math.
I ask T.H. ….No,…. I plead with T.H. “You did not offer…did you?”
He said “No, I did not” …… Me thinks he doth protest too much. I said “Which one?”

P.S. And the winner is………………….ME! Because I got Patch back and weirdo cousin “Willie” is now a resident of Colorado.
And we now have 6 dogs. According to TH that is 4 too many dogs. Technically, I have only 2.
