2018 / Year Of The Dog

2018 is the year of the dog. I own a dog. I was forced to buy a big one, at my wife`s insistence, when I acquired a stalker. Something that was neither as glamorous, or flattering, as it might sound. When the “gifts” left at the house started to be accompanied by veiled death threats towards my spouse. When the children swore they heard footsteps outside the bathroom window, in the dark.

My life is now as “scheduled” by the dog`s routine, as it is by those of my kids. Feeding him. Grooming him. Walking him. Hiding stuff he might be inclined to destroy. Clearing up the stuff he has found and destroyed.

The dog has no mirror. In his mind he looks like this:

When in reality he weighs 40 kilos and fells small children with a wag of his tail.
