Boyfriend and his Dog

Boyfriend has a dog (a goldendoodle) that he feels very strongly about.


He told me a short story about her (speaking for her) and I decided to illustrate it.

Boyfriend takes puppy for a walk pretty much every day, even when it’s really cold out. It was freezing last week (#polarvortex!), so the walk was especially short. He came in and sat down to chill.













So puppy went downstairs and Boyfriend kept doing what he was doing until it was bed time. He realized he didn’t know where puppy was (she sleeps in his room), so he went to go look for her. He found her outside, waiting to come back in.



Boyfriend thinks she was out there for over an hour in the freezing cold. (His son felt really bad about it when Boyfriend told him the next day.)



Luckily, she was mostly ok.

  1. I wondered what pet owners did/do in the freezing weather, train the dog to crap in the toilet? Who knew that a goldendoodle would be such a foul mouth. I can see a chihuahua being such a curser, but a goldendoodle I'd think would be more prim and proper, like that mom on Downton Abbey.

  2. SO "arf" is a four letter word? You have captured the essence of most dogs...love it.

  3. My puppy won't accept a short walk either. Luckily, we're in Florida so it's never freezing cold, but sometimes it is raining.

  4. My 4 dogs are all big babies and will barely even go out to pee in the winter, much less take a walk. In fact, when it's particularly cold out, my Italian greyhound will just piss on the front step and then sprint back inside. The chances of me locking them out are near impossible, since they're usually scratching at the door to get in before me.

  5. My boys don't have a problem with cold weather (not that it's ever horribly cold), but they hate rain and will go without peeing for hours in order to avoid peeing in the rain. X once left my beloved Faulkner out on a hot day for hours. Faulkner was okay, but it's a miracle that I didn't kill X. It was always miraculous that I didn't kill him.

    Love,

  6. My doggie didn't like going out, but she went out in our fenced yard, did her thing and hurried the hell back in!

  7. Wow.

    I have on occasion unwittingly locked my pooch outside of the house. Reading about the poor weather conditions in your neck of the woods suddenly made me feel less guilty regarding my previous actions. :P Poor puppy...

  8. Oh my gosh, this cracked me up, because this is my dog exactly! Only my dog didn't get even a short walk. No way was I going for a stroll in that weather! So he moped and moped, looking at me like, 'what's the problem? it's beautiful out!' And the dumb jerk wouldn't come in when he was outside. He just bounded around in the snow. Weirdo!
    Glad boyfriend's puppy didn't freeze to death, though! Poor forgotten puppy. Good thing he sleeps with Boyfriend and he realized before he went to bed!

  12. Aww, poor puppy. My sister has a goldendoodle too. They are the sweetest (unless of course they're swearing at you because you won't take them out.) My dog was born in Texas and I swear she has never forgiven us for taking her to such a rainy place.

  13. I love this, but poor puppy!! I usually don't swear but even I would have if I was left outside to freeze. Bad son!!!

  14. Goldendoodles rule! We have one that's about 9 years old and much lower-key than Puppy from this story. He likes to walk, but he's also fine with lounging around the house all the time.

  15. That's the benefit of having a cat. They don't need to be walked!

  16. My dog demanded walks too... My mom or my brother would let him out in the yard when I was at work or school. No matter how recent it was, as soon as I got home he acted like he hadn't been out all day. I wouldn't be able to sit down until I took him out for his walk. Rain or shine. Or snow. He was relentless.
