My mom has made her little dogs her pet projects, so to speak. She spoils them like crazy and I think that it’s ridiculous. She definitely did not ever treat me as well as she treats her silly little dogs and maybe I’m just a little bit jealous or something. Anyway, last year she put in this gigantic dog house for them in the backyard because she thought that they needed to have their own space. I thought that was crazy enough, but now she has decided that having their own dog house is not enough. Now, she wants to have a special little HVAC system installed in the doghouse for them too. She says that if they don’t have their own heating and cooling system in the dog house, then they might get too cold in the winter or too hot in the summer. I think it’s ridiculous, though. I mean, dogs have fur coats to keep them warm in the winter, right? I guess that maybe I could understand the need to put some sort of cooling system out there because it does get really hot here in the summertime. But buying a ductless mini split air conditioning unit to put into a dog house just seems like overkill to me. I think my mom may be going overboard when it comes to these dogs. I asked her the other day if she’s going to be writing the dogs into her will, too. Should I worry that they are going to take my place as her favorite child? It’s crazy. I don’t think that any dog needs more of a cooling system than a bowl of water, some shade, and possibly a fan. They certainly don’t need their own doggy A/C.
