Don't apologize for being lucky about something, you needed help because of your surgery.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

now that I've learned a bit more about first world problems i have renamed these days 'insubordination saturdays' and 'scandalous sundays'

not only do i let my girls off their leashes on these days but i also take their collars off so they look even more like the ex-street-girls that they are

i particularly like to watch my 70 pounder up on her hind legs peeking into a bin

who doesn't like to watch a wild animal in its natural state.

We went to see the Wolf of Wall Street last night and it was awful.

I finished my popcorn and Ice cream before the film started

I have a perfectly lovely park next to my place where dogs are allowed to run free, but it's also the place where people can bring their compost.

And my puppy EATS the compost each time I try to bring him there...

where i take my compost to be recycled, its in skip with a little step ladder so people can get up and drop things in, i'm dreading my dogs will work out how to use the stepladder giving them full access to a full triple wide skip of kitchen waste, its only a matter of time..
