Dog Park Dope
Take one bored pooch; add warm muggy weather; a tired,old mom with her knitting; a dusty crowded dog park; 25 running dogs and combine until well mixed. After 2 hours provide plenty of cold water and a pillow for the head of the wasted little dog. Recipe for quiet time is a success.
This reminds me of the days when my only relief from child-rearing involved putting them in the bathtub while they splashed into bliss. I sat on the cool tile floor for as long as they lasted, with my knitting or a book. Sometimes a glass of wine. That was my dope. I have been parenting for 27 years both kids and dogs. I still seek solace...
