Ladies, there are times when marriage comes easy – it’s still a lesson I am learning, but the key I am learning is that it’s good to acknowledge when your husband is right… like when you say you will puppy sit for a week and it will all be okay and that you can totally fit a second dog into your two bedroom apartment! No problem hunny, it’ll be GREAT!
It was great, and now that the bonus pup is gone I’m having a serious case of the sads that she isn’t here, but I know now that Ben was right. Sigh. For everything that we tried to do to make sure Huck was still the top dog in the house, Ms. Maeby still ruled the roost and Huck just gave in every single time. I tried to tell him to grow a pair, then I remembered that I got him fixed at 6 months old… Sorry dude, mom hamstringed ya there. But having a small, cuddly dog around the house was a blast, and Huck having his best puppy friend around 24/7 filled my heart with joy. Now we begin the readjustment to being a one dog household.
And I’m eating my feelings.
Maeby wasted no time making our home her home for the week, which is what I had hoped would happen. She always feels the need to be touching people – or know where you are, like in the bathroom, on the toilet. Which is definitely disconcerting when you hear this tiny face bonk the bathroom door first thing in the morning. Or when she slithers under the covers when Ben gets up in the middle of the night, only to turn from 30 pounds of dog into 85 pounds of dead weight when you try to move her.
Me not laughing wasn’t an option – and poor Ben had to DRAG the poor snuggly dog back out from under the covers.
But for all the adjustments, she was a perfect new houseguest – and Huck and I loved having her. I still can’t wait for another dog, but I know that Ben is right – another dog just can’t be right now. If you need a puppsitter though – I’m your gal!!
Easy Herb Buttermilk Drop Biscuits
1 1/4 cup Flour
2 1/4 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Salt
2 Tbsp Fresh Dill, minced
2 Tbsp Green Onion, minced
1 tsp Rosemary, minced
1/4 cup Butter, chilled and cubed
2/3 cup Buttermilk
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Add in the minced herbs and mix together.
Using a pastry blender, or two forks, blend in the cubed butter until small pea sized crumbles form.
Gently mix in the buttermilk, folding to combine just until the dry ingredients are mixed together and the dough just holds together.
On a parchment lined baking sheet, drop 12 biscuits onto the sheet. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the biscuits begin to turn golden brown. Adjust baking times as necessary. Serve with soup or chowder.
