My beloved hound Andy is doing his best to teach me aparigraha (non-attachment). I am doing my best to teach Andy that no means "no".
This is Andy. Don't let those beautiful almond eyes and uber soft fuzzy ears fool you into being a crooning puddle of lovey dovey.
This is my (expensive) cotton yoga mat, now being reused as a throw rug. This is what Andy has done to my cotton yoga mat
I'm not sure what he has against my cotton yoga mat/rug. I think he's trying to tell me to just 'let it go'. I'm cool with that (it's being used as a rug after all). But still... chewing holes in it? Dude. Not cool.
PS - he only does this in the Morning, while I'm pulling breakfast and lunches together. I suspect that it just smells really really good to him and he wants to have clean teeth before breakfast.
