Just over a year ago, we got a dog.
Just in case you missed all the hoopla at the time, this is Sadie.
Sadie is really my youngest daughter's buddy. This is all fine and dandy, the only problem is, Sadie WILL NOT leave ME alone.
She loves me, I know that, but she ALWAYS seems to be under my feet.
Actually, if I sit still long enough she'll sit ON my feet.
And, if I get up, for even just a minute to get something from the other room, she'll follow me.
I've tried telling Sadie to stay, I've tried explaining to her that I'm coming right back but she trots under my feet anyway and watches me do whatever it is I'm doing.
Honestly? It's a little creepy at times.
She's an 8 lb. stalker.
A cute little stalker, but still, a stalker.
Sorry, Sadie. I love you but can you maybe, just occasionally, take a page from the cat's book, and leave me alone for a few minutes?
Yeah, pretend to be that grey fluff ball that we only see at meal times who lives with us.
Not all the time, just maybe for a few hours a day.
I need a break.
