Human post from the #dogmom
Before our #korsakpack evolved into a constant stampede of pitties & a little 🐶🤪😛, I knew that training and repetition would take lots of time, even with the goodest dogs. I rested on the fact that Bane and Drax are relatively easy (not to mention how extremely easy Ruca is) and I let them plateau while I settled for a few tolerable but unideal behaviors. Probably a common mindset for pet owners. I still love them and they are fine. 🐾
Sometimes I compare myself to my friends who have human children, and think that I have it so much easier/have fewer responsibilities. True as it may be, that’s not really useful. I do believe that parenting humans is incredibly more complex than being a responsible pet owner, but that’s not my point in this message. I am challenging myself to keep stepping up.
Any human or pet family member who you care for deserves attention and time and a little bit of sacrifice. I am someone who loves others, specifically David, Ruca, Bane, & Drax—absolutely love that quality about myself & my life. This is my family. It is totally fair to give them some priority. It is not at all crazy to make some sacrifices for them. I’ve been doing it! I teach them, I keep them safe, I feed them, clean them and clean up after them (THEY DO NOT DO ANY OF THIS FOR THEMSELVES 😂) I absolutely need to give myself credit for the time I put in to their routines and habits, just like I give myself credit for work hours and exercise time, and not unlike I give major props to my mama friends who are devoted to their small humans. 💕
