My daughter recently got married, and she moved out of state. I miss her, and I was really lone. I wasn’t dealing with the empty nest syndrome very well, and she bought me a dog. My puppy has become so spoiled, and I encourage her. I always said that a dog wouldn’t run me, but she has the biggest brown eyes, and I can’t resist her anything. She even sleeps on the pillow next to mine. I’ve also begun to leave the air conditioning on while I am at work. I turn it up a little, because she doesn’t need it as cool as I do, but I don’t want her to be uncomfortable. She is a little Shitzu and she has a lot of hair. I go away quite a bit, and I can’t take her with me when I am on business, so I always try to get a dog sitter that will stay at my house. I have several family members that help me out, but they aren’t always available. When this happens, I need to put her in a kennel. I have very specific needs when I call the kennels. I want air conditioning, and plenty of room for her to run. Not all kennels have air conditioning, but I won’t leave her in one under any other condition. My puppy is used to having air conditioning. Why would I put her someplace that may have her in an outdoor kennel where it is blazing hot, or locked away in a room, that is even warmer because of lack of air conditioning. I wouldn’t someone to do it to me, and I won’t do it to her.
