My dog is picky about where he urinates, and lately he’s worse than ever. Let me explain.
A pretty wicked storm whipped through our town last week and it caused an ass-slapping ton of destruction. My back yard is a public park with many trees, and the storm left dozens of huge branches, and thousands of small branches and twigs laying on the ground.
It’s become a doggy urination mecca.
You see, the park used to be just the same old trees to whizz on, but now there is literally a pee point every where you turn. It’s either a beautiful thing, or it’s driving dogs crazy. My pup Rusty seems to be more on the crazy side. He’s become very picky on which piece of dead tree is joyously marked. He’ll run up to fallen branch or twig and sniff out the situation for a while. If small enough, he’ll walk around the decaying bark to fully inspect it, and then eventually decide if he’s lifting his leg. Usually he might find 2 or 3 leg-lifting spots, but with so many new opportunities on the ground, he’s going 6-8 times.
I’m cutting myself off. I’m done writing about doggy urination, and maybe it’s time I throw in the “how this relates to your job search” section. But do I really need it? All bloggers take their life stories and then relate it to the purpose of their blog. It’s what we do. It’s how we try to keep things interesting and not sound like preachers. But I’m not sure I want to do that….
You guys are smart folks, in fact I’ll even say you are very intelligent people. I’m sure you can look at this story and point out how it relates to searching for a job. You can probably talk about how it relates to the economy, maybe? Should you be my dog? Do you inspect things vigorously before lifting your leg? I mean, you get what I’m saying….?
