Having A Dog Is Good For Me

Having had Falcor now for about 3 months has been good for me. He's always so energetic and wanting to play and who wouldn't get in a good mood when they have a puppy who always wants to play and cuddle with them. 

But he's also been good for me because after we got him house broken and he learned to potty outside, I now step outside with him. For those that don't know, I have Agoraphobia and spent most of the last 4 years inside my apartment without leaving it but 2-3 times. So I bought him one of those retractable leashes that have a long line on them so he can run to all the tree's when I step outside. 

The leash is long enough for him to 'visit' the three tree's in our courtyard and all the bushes by my door. 

He lets us know when he has to go out and I don't have a problem stepping outside with him as long as it's right outside my door. As you can see there are apartments right across from my side and we all face each other so I sometimes get a little uncomfortable if a lot of people are coming and going but it's usually quiet here during the day.

There are the two tree's on the right side of my apartment and one right in front of my apartment plus there are bushes in front of almost everyone's apartment. Ken takes Falcor for the longer walks a couple of times a day. But I am going outside, even if it's just outside my door.

Silly dog.

Of course there are some days I just want to pull my hair out. LOL Little brat that he is, tore up one of the couch pillows.

And he just sat there looking so pleased with himself.

But he's too goofy to stay mad at for long. lol
