After the recent events that took place in my household I think that it’s fair to say that I spoiled my dog to the point of no return.
My dog Zoey is a three year old rescue dog that had a very bad start to life thanks to some very irresponsible parents. In order to make up for lost time I have admittedly been a little over the top when it comes to spoiling her with treats, toys, and belly rubs. Well, the other day when I tried to take Zoey out for a walk on a hot summer day she decided to stop walking in the middle of the journey. Because Zoey is a very big dog with an even bigger coat of fur I tend to keep the air conditioning at an extremely cool temperature at all times of the day. I even invested in a brand new state of the art air conditioning system this year just to be sure that she would be comfortable. Obviously the A/C at home has been keeping her a little too comfortable, because on this walk the moment she was too warm she decided that the walk was just over. She was so stubborn that I actually ended up having to call a friend that lived nearby so he could drive us back to my house. As you might expect I was feeling angry and a little embarrassed, but I guess it is my fault that this happened because I was the one who did all of the spoiling, not her. Despite that disaster I will still keep spoiling my dog to some degree because she deserves it, but there is no question that I will also be rolling back some of the luxuries that she has had over the past year.
