canine friend

I miss having a pet dog who would always be there for me, who would be my friend without any reservations and no hidden agenda and who would constantly ask for my attention. Since my brother was bitten by a dog several times before, he has developed a phobia. I think having a pet puppy will help him overcome that fear. I am more of a dog person than a cat lover. Yes, we had pet dogs before but now, my parents don't want to have another pet (we currently have a red-eared turtle) coz it is an added expense. I understand, that's why I have declined opportunities of adopting a puppy.

Last night, I was walking a few blocks from the house towards the main road where I can hail a cab for work. That was about 10:30PM. I have been in the graveyard shift for almost 3 years now and I'm used to commuting alone. I've had my own scary moments and last night was an addition. I was about 2 blocks away from the house when this drunkard was walking opposite my direction. He tried to catch my attention by making psst! sounds and mumbling words at me. I walked faster and didn't show him that I heard. Suddenly, this dog was barking at him. There are lots of dogs on our street (also the reason why my brother is not accompanying me on my way to work), but they always ignore me. I was surpised when this dog was barking madly and I was relieved when I saw that the bark was for the drunk person who was, at that time, made a u-turn and tried to follow me. Good thing the huge dog was barking and it was on his path, so I was able to "get away". It was really scary.

I miss having a canine friend.

Finally, we had this civil exchange of words and now, my Ma and I are in speaking terms. Thank God it happened before the 16th. I don't like to watch a movie with her and sulk the whole time. Something (someone?) pissed me off at work last night, but I am not in the mood to expound on it. Then there's this girl who is in my Friendster account who likes to plagiarize me when I post answers to surveys. I know some of us like to answer surveys to show our friends who we really are and to share our experiences, but then we are two different people and puhleez... if you can't help but copy me, don't just copy and paste my words. Learn how to rephrase for pity's sake!

I hope this feeling just disappears. Don't want to ruin my "vacation leave" tomorrow. Looking forward to it! :)
