Have you liked Life with Arie on Facebook yet? If not, you should, and if you have, you may have noticed our new rule series.
Lately I’ve had several conversations with friends about the “rules” to having a dog. One is about to start pet sitting a dog, and is nervous about caring for a dog she doesn’t know quite know the habits and needs of yet. Others are contemplating getting a puppy for the first time, and still others are wondering how to mingle their new dog with their beloved cat.
Over the past few weeks of having these conversations, I’ve also been re-watching the series How I Met Your Mother. If you watch it, then you’ll know all about the “Bro Code,” or a book of rules and statutes between “bros” that one character, Barney, is determined to enforce. This got me thinking…What are the rules, or codes, to having a pet? Start watching our Facebook posts (you’ll want to subscribe to be sure you get them) and tweets to find out!
These rules aren’t your basics of “feed your dog” and “training is important;” take a look at the two we’ve posted so far to get an idea of what I mean:
Let’s be honest–One woman cannot write a comprehensive rule list for having pets. I want to hear YOUR rules to having a dog (or cat or guinea pig or iguana, you name it)! Post your rule in the comments section, on our Facebook page, or tweet it with an @masdemoore mention and the hashtag #LWArules. Hint hint…hint hint…there may be a little something special for one of the rule writers later on this month!
