This is definitely some sort of metaphor representing society and where it’s headed.

  • Help my dog exit the reclined chair by un-reclining it? No. (How the hell did she get into it!?)
  • Watch and take pictures from the kitchen as she struggles? Yes.
  • Feel a little bit cruel? Maybe. (She’s perfectly fine and still loves me.) 
  • Find this entirely hilarious for many, many hours? Absolutely.
  • Lesson learned: Dogs are not cats.

"What? What do you want from me? I’m not doing anything wrong. Can’t a dog sit and enjoy the Christmas tree for one minute without being bothered? GOD!”

What is it?! Now that I’m looking at the picture, I’m thinking beaver. But honestly, what do I know?
*Update: Kim says it’s a woodchuck. And she said “woodchuck!" with an exclamation point at the end for certainty. And I think she is right because I google image searched "woodchuck" (which I kind of had forgotten were actual things besides just words in tongue-twisters) and after overcoming the cuteness overload, I decided that this is in fact, a woodchuck. That also explains the beaver tail. Until right now, I was unaware that woodchucks had tails.

When people call you

and your phone rings, or vibrates, or at least lights up to let you know that someone is trying to contact you, that’s generally a good thing because you know, that’s how phones are supposed to work. Well, mine doesn’t work that way, except for when I wish it wouldn’t because I am in the middle of trying to take pictures of groundhog-ish, gofer-y looking, beaver creatures.

Out of the the four phone calls that I supposedly received today, my phone only rang for one of them. The one time that it did decide to ring was when my mom called me during the last few minutes of my run. I was at the end of the path I had mapped out for myself when I noticed a family of groundhogs scurrying across the pavement and into the woods. At least I think they were groundhogs. They could have been hedgehogs though. Or gofers. Or beavers. The mom one of the family had a tail that looked like a beaver’s. Anyway, whatever they were, they were fricken cute and I wanted a picture of one so I stopped my speed and distance tracker app, paused my music player, and opened the camera on the phone and slowly walked onto the grass so I could get closer to one of the little suckers. It was a chill little beaver thing too because he didn’t run away and just as I was about to snap the picture, my phone closed the camera to notify me that my mom was calling.

I have never hit the ignore button so quickly in my life. Sorry mom but the groundhog/ gofer/ hedgehog/ beaver was just too darn cute. I’ll post his pic so he can have his Internet debut and maybe someone will be able to identify his true species.
