My dog is louder than your dog.So there.

Okay, we like many got a dog before kids. Actually I can give you a brief inside on my pet ownership.

I really wanted a bunny when we got married. TURNS out after that brief encounter of meeting one – I am highly allergic…and ended up in urgent care. SO, we got Budgies (parakeets). Turns out I am great at naming them…but scared to death of birds. (Olivette Maria Ann Merlot  & Brutus Aristotle Martini)…Then since we lived only in a place that we could have cats (my hubby hates cats) Joe even told me he would leave if I got a cat. Turns out, I tested that theory…We are still together.. Turns out, after much research I found a breed that is supposed to be like a dog…Turns out, OURS does not. Turns out our cat may not even be the breed advertised. Ours came with issues. MANY many issues. One being – he is not a people lover. The other he is not even a people liker.  TURNS out I hate liter boxes (Joe does too, but I love that pregnancy allowed me to switch that job). SO, then I thought we needed  a dog. I found pugs cute. TURNS out…Joe did not want that either, again tested the theory and now 10 years gone by. We have Gertie McGee.  whew, you following me? Okay. History – not well.

Well, we have this dog. And she is a great dog. Other than, it TURNS out she is super loud. Not barking loud (unless prompted: doorbell, people, other dogs…wait, I guess she barks a lot). Not growling. BREATHING.  Straight up. People come over ask if she is okay, ask if she is dying…nope. Turns out that is just my dog, just my dog living. Sweet huh? I had to kick her off the bed at one time (she sleeps on the floor now) because she would snore, then joe would and all night I was between two freight trains. Now, recently instead of sleeping on the floor – she has climbed onto the chair in our room…and now with the lift in sleeping, she is echoing a night again…it is nutty. That Gertie Girl could beat anyone at a snore off – or even a breathe off…Anyone have earplugs for this condition? This used to be the quietest part of my day. I really thought the kids were loud…

    Hahahah Jen I died reading this. When I’m there at night after the kids are down, I hear a super loud breathing and I’m like what in God’s name is that?? Turns out, it’s just Gertie snoring/breathing away. I have to turn the TV up so loud so that I can hear it over her, and get slightly worried that the kids will wake up from it…ohhhh Gertie.

    Still can’t get over the story..”FOR REAL? I was not here then..”
