walk-dog

Emergency commissions!

I’ll explain it quickly, yesterday my mom went to walk with my dog in the garden of our apartment while I was away, and at night my dog began to choke and vomit, so we took him to the vet and the doctor said that it ate something intoxicated, then I discovered that my “lovable” condominium manager put pesticide on the plants without telling anyone about this. My dog will be fine, but will have to spend a few days at the vet, start a new diet, not to mention the medicines, so I urgently need money to pay for everything.

I’m willing to take commissions (only sketchs) for a lower price than normal. You can contact me via tumblr / messages.

Also, i’ve uptaded my redbubble. [ HERE ]

If you can’t pay for a comission, i would be extremely grateful if you could help me spreading the word.

i cant stop sayibg “boss i packed you a lunchable” like i was muttering it while i was walking my dog and now im lying in my depression nest quietly whispering “boss i packed you a lunchable”

the night time weather atm is really pleasant and summery so I decided to walk the dog late at night to enjoy it, while I was walking I met a drunk guy who asked me the time and then asked me if “quarter to midnight” meant it was past 1am

when I explained it wasn’t 1am yet he requested a hug, and when I politely declined and kept walking he called after me “you’re a right meanie”

Pre summer

Tonight it hit me: the delightful BLISS of summer ahead. A child NOT in foster care- adoption leave from work- and oh am I spinning with possibilities!! I’ve planned for this since last fall, but told myself no hyper planning until after spring break. Then I enrolled lou in summer school, which is six weeks, four days a week, but done at 2. Something I couldn’t do if I was working full time and something she needs so much too. But it changes this vision for our beautiful summer of beach and zoo and friends and fires and bonding…. however it now looks like space for amazing self care and house crap and walking my dog and then afternoons and evenings together, which is still pretty great. And! There is space for long weekends. The travel bug has me pretty hard. Now to find the ever elusive balance of not too much, it is a struggle.

I just keep looking at the planner and dreaming. We can leave our state, whenever I want!!! We have two long weekend camping trips booked in August, when summer school is done. In June I’m off a couple of long weekends due to school schedule. Day camp is set for when there is not summer school. And we’re doing a 3 day family camp on regulation in June (ahem, more not working). Then my leave will start the week after July fourth.

Budgets, drives, PLACES all swooping in my head…. so much fun!

8:38

By 8:30 this morning, I had already dressed, fed, dropped off two kids, took their teacher appreciation gifts into school, went to the school registration office to register the kids for school next year, Starbucks run, UPS store to return the orthopedic shoes to Amazon, dropped MeToo off at daycare and walked the dog.

Curious- what do you all get for your kids’ teachers for the end of the school year?

I did a $25 gift card to a neighborhood restaurant for each teacher (4) and then $50 for the after care teacher who had both Dino and Bee.

I love how my shit editing is so inconsistent lol

Reactivity update:

- we’ve been going on frequent walks with some of my friends w/ their dogs and Millie ?? has been ?? so good ?? Like literally I think she growled/barked maybe three times yesterday and that was it! (I know that sounds like a lot but that’s actually really good for us haha)

- attention while heeling w/ distractions is getting along so well! the problem is, Millie gets so anxious when we’re out (but improving), that she doesn’t always take food from me so it’s hard to find incentive for her to actually look at me - but we’re getting there, and she’s improving so much every day!

I'm a 19 year old just back from college yet all I did today was walk dogs with my cousin's six year old son and then watch his tee ball game and carry all his stuff to the car I am SO excited to be a soccer mom

literally me tho one of my life goals is suburban soccer mom

I was at my cousin’s house for a family barbecue and she shushed us all bc her neighbor ‘The Captain’ was walking by with a dog, and he was just some skinny guy with a long ponytail and a captain’s hat walking an irish wolfhound so we all like ‘what’s the big deal’ but she told us to wait and then like ten minutes later he passed again on his way back to his house but he just…had a different dog. it was like a cocker spaniel. she said every day he leaves the house with the wolfhound and comes back with the tiny dog and she’s never seen them get returned either way. she can never find out where he walks to. shes been watching him for years. my family was freaking the fuck out one of my other cousins looked like he was about to have an aneurysm.  

okay but like one day in the dog park the dog owners walking their dogs hear a voice yelling “GERTRUDE”. and everyone is like who the fuck would name their dog like that, and then this gigantic fucking german shepherd runs past and when they watch where the dog goes they see the big ass dog running towards this badass looking lesbian couple with a fuken squeaky toy in her mouth

That time my dog disappeared into Carrie Fisher's house

From reddit user: /u/AinsleyIscariot

Someone recommended I make a post out of a comment that I made elsewhere so here it is! True story and still cringe inside whenever I tell it.

One of the most awkward moments of my life was meeting Carrie. I live in London and walk my dog because he needs to shit every now and then- usually when I get back to my road I let him off the lead and he will run to the house. He will, that is, unless there is ANYTHING else of interest within a 1 mile radius of the house. One day he just ran straight through someone’s open door and I was there on the doorstep tentatively calling after him while I could hear him sprinting around the house. Then there’s lots of barking and I realise there’s another dog there and sure enough my dog comes sprinting out the house being chased by a small dog that seemingly wanted to play with him. Anyway this American woman comes to the door, hearing all the commotion and I make my apologies and we have the usual dog conversation. She then invited me in for a coffee, I thought why not and so we started chatting, and she explained she was renting the house for a month while she was in London. I asked what she did for a living and she told me movies, I asked “Anything I would know?” Slight pause “Star Wars?” “Oh right what did you do in it were you on the crew or an actress?” “An actress” “Oh great who did you play” “Princess Leia?” I swear to fuck I stood there with my mouth open, feeling as if I’d somehow just shat down my own throat. (This was before the franchise reboot so the image of her in my head was the Carrie Fisher in her twenties) She, however, thought it was really cute and laughed it off. Absolutely lovely woman with one crazy fucking dog named Gary.

TLDR: I had a twenty minute conversation with a woman who had been on the receiving end of my dog’s home invasion and didn’t realise it was Carrie Fisher until she told me.

Producer Jeff Bhasker faced a daunting task several months ago. After having worked with Kanye West and winning Grammy Awards for producing Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk,” and Fun.’s 2012 album “Some Nights,” he had to decide whether to take on a new project: the debut solo album of One Direction member Harry Styles.

“I’d just had a baby, and I was kind of like, ‘Eh, I don’t know if I’ll jump into this,‘” Bhasker tells Variety. He agreed to have Styles come over to “just talk,” and proceeded to put him through the Bhasker home sniff test. “My dog tends to bite people, and he was kind of scoping Harry out,” Bhasker explains. Styles “did this move — like a little shoot the gun with his finger, and my dog walked over and started licking his finger. That’s when I was, like, ‘This guy has something special.'”

Once music came into the mix, Bhasker was sold. “He started playing references of what he wanted to do, which sounded like a cool rock band. I got it, and could see where if we pulled this off, it would be one of the coolest things ever. But he needed a buddy who plays guitar like he’s Keith Richards.” The insinuation being: Styles is the Mick Jagger in this scenario.

Adds Bhasker: “I’m so proud of the album itself, and also of Harry for being so brave, and committing 100%, and writing the kind of vulnerable lyrics that he wrote, and not pandering to what people thought he would do. People have no idea that this is what Harry Styles is like. Just like I didn’t know. He’s obviously very famous and beloved, but people don’t know the depths of what an amazing personality and artist he is.”

Variety spoke with Bhasker about the recording of “Harry Styles” ahead of the album’s May 12 release:
