So, my 6 year old handed me a book that she wrote/illustrated at school. I didn’t realize they had that much free time. Apparently her teacher is an accomplice with the stapling of said book. It’s a conspiracy.
How to Take Care of a Dog
- First give her food and water.
- Take her for (a) poop.
- Take her for a wake. [I really hope she means walk here, but a dog at a wake may be fun.]
- Snuggle with her.
- Wash her. [May I suggest this step comes before the last one?]
- Play with her.
- Put her to sleep. [Oh, how I don’t even want to think about that phrasing and we don’t even have a dog.]
My daughter is also conspiring with her 4 year old brother to take up a collection to “buy” a dog. Someone must have dropped a $50 figure to them for dog adoption from a shelter, because that is their goal.
Missing from this expert plan is picking up poop from the yard.
