The House Business Meeting for the week of 2/2 – 2/8: Notes

After receiving much helpful feedback (in the form of words, assorted canine protests, and teeth), young Buddy has submitted a revised version of his proposed daily routine schedule for the household to consider. The new schedule is as follows:

Wake up (after a reluctant but still reasonably fulfilling sleep)

Go out. Run around a lot.

Human attempts to eat. Buddy attempts to steal food directly from human’s mouth.
[Human objects. Buddy insists that it is a healthy way to keep humans active and aware, and may also assist in weight loss efforts. Human is skeptical.]

Piranha Time!
[Other dogs and human: “What the…?” Buddy: contorts himself, scoots along the floor on his head with his butt in the air and attempts to bite everything in his path.]

[Buddy: “Oh, come on. A guy has one little accident…” Human: “AS MANY TIMES AS IT FUCKING TAKES FURBALL.”]

Human may leave for a few minutes, if necessary
[Human: Is glad that dogs really can’t tell time.]

Human returns, and gives dogs treats until dogs get tired of asking for treats
[Human: “Yeah. That’s not really going to happen.” All dogs: “WHHHHHYYYYYY?”]

Dogs go out. Run around a lot.

STOP. Piranha Time!
[Everyone but Buddy: *sigh*]

Dinner for all!

[Human: “You know, I do actually have work to do here…” Other dogs: “Dude, this is getting really old. Kind of like us.” Buddy: “RAWR!”

Obviously this schedule proposal contains some accommodations for the non-Buddy members of the group, but it still requires extensive revision. We will take the matter up again next week.


About L. M. Bernhardt

For a good long while (15+ years), I taught philosophy at a little private university in northwest IA, and occasionally branched out into playing music, dabbling in photography, experimenting with food, and writing nonsense on my blog. The philosophy teaching part ended in 2017 (program elimination via prioritization), but never fear! I've recently finished my MLIS at San Jose State University, and I'm currently on the market looking for new adventures in either philosophy or LIS. For now, I labor at a fairly interesting administrative job in order to support my dogs in the lavish manner to which they've become accustomed.
