I love my two doggy doos, I really do. I wouldn’t trade them for a million dollars and I am usually quite happy to come home to them every day. However, my hours at the hospital have been VERY long lately. I have an hour or two every day at home when I’m not sleeping. I lack the energy or time to take my doggies on long walks when I get home. I try my best to make up for this on my days off. But the reality is that I live in a studio apartment in Brooklyn, with no yard. My doggies unfortunately have to spend long hours inside alone. I feel terribly guilty for this, but try to treat them to super long runs when I can. If I had to do it all over again, I’d still have my doggies during medical school, but that is not to say that it’s been easy!
Last week, I came home to a roll of aluminum foil ripped apart all over my apartment. Today I came home to a shoebox and some sporks torn to shreds. Luckily, they have spared my valuables lately. I was happy to sacrifice my sporks to my doggies. I love them dearly, but they are trying to tell me something! So, I’m off to make it up to them with a nice walk to the park!
