When Schizer passed I felt ususual. I couldn't help but think I didnt do enough to help my best friend. The days that followed were worse and with my health all over the map I saw myself become someone different. I didn't want to blog or go to work, leaving the house became a chore and I felt all sorts of crazy. Three months go by and I knew I wasn't ready to adopt again. I filled out an application to foster and received Sammy a few weeks later. My life had purpose again. I mean look at this face:
From the moment I saw his squiggly body I knew I was going to find him the best family I could.
I was chosen to help save him, give him a place to stay so he wouldn't end up in a shelter. But with my mood changing by the minute and my craziness taking a back seat I couldn't help but realize... he helped mine.

So, AAA came out with a study stating how dogs are an increasing distraction for drivers. Here's what they found...
I dont know about you but when i first saw this article i rolled my eyes. I am totally guilty of most of these, especially the one about having your dog on your lap. It was the only way Schizer would drive with me alone. In fact, it was more distracting trying to keep her off my lap then having her on.
Then yesterday happened. I was racing back to work on lunch when i came to a red light. I was behind a woman that didnt know the light turned green. 1 one thousand, 2 one thousand, 3 one thousand, BEEPPPP!!! I just had to! Then she goes 30 in a 45 and i was so enraged the car was fogging. When the road finally reached two lanes, i looked over ready with my meanest get off your phone look, when i see the woman giving kissy faces to her dog. The yellow lab then stuck his head out the window with the biggest grin ever.
Damn it i thought, i was no longer mad and actually caught myself smiling. Case in point... We get distracted because we are witnessing ad learning what those crazy non dog lovers (AAA) arent; it's the little things in life that lead to happiness. Like wind blowing in your hair.
