I love you, I truly do, but there are some weird things about you. I write this in the most loving way possible, but I think you deserve to know why I think you’re kind of weird.
You don’t like peanut butter. How is that even possible? I definitely thought every person/animal/thing with a brain liked peanut butter. It is one of the greatest creations in the history of ever. You refuse to eat it.
You don’t like bananas. I guess that makes sense since you don’t like the perfect complement to bananas – peanut butter. You look at me like I’m torturing you when I offer you a banana. Really I’m just trying to get you some potassium. I think they’re delicious. [you can watch the video where I’m the worst mom ever and try to give him a banana here]
You don’t like popcorn. HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE. Popcorn is like seeing a unicorn travel over a rainbow – magical. Popcorn is magical. Yet you find it repulsive. How is that possible?
You don’t like carrots. Come on, Atka. Yes, carrots are healthy, but they’re great to chew on! I see so many dogs happily indulge in a good carrot, but you would rather shred it and throw it across the living room floor. For me to vacuum up.
You have to greet me in the same spot every day. When I come home from work, you run to the door but then immediately run to the living room. I can’t pet you when I’m walking in the door. I have to go into the living room and sit on the ottoman to pet you. You fuss if I take too long to get to the ottoman.
Don’t worry, Atka. I still love you with all my heart. Soon, I’ll tell you all the reasons why I love you <3
