So I love my dog like really, really a lot. As I've mentioned.
Recently I became quite panicked when I heard about the Pet Food Recall. Because I shop at Kroger and that was one of the places that sold the food. Then I heard it was only the "wet" brands of food and Ginger only eats the "dry" brands of food. And I felt momentarily better.
But seriously? I should stay away from television. Especially informercials and the news. Because last night? I watched the news and heard about more pets dying. And one of the signs that they were really sick was that they were drinking a lot of water.
Last night, Jason and I were sitting on the couch and Ginger began to whine a bit. She went to her water dish and began to nudge it around. Jason went and filled up her bowl.
I, predictably, panicked.
"Jason!" I shrieked. "I'm so afraid that Ginger has been exposed to tainted dog food and now she's going to die!"
Jason looked at me as though I had two heads and said, "Um, honey? Remember? It was only the wet dog food, not the dry food. Ginger doesn't even eat that brand."
I was near tears. "But JASON! I saw on ABC News tonight that dogs who ate the tainted food are drinking a lot of WATER! And she's drinking a LOT."
"Honey? First of all, why were you watching ABC News?"
"I was waiting for JUDGE JUDY to come on!" I said. "And what difference does that make anyway?"
"Secondly," he continued. "It's eighty degrees outside."
"She's wearing a FUR COAT."
"Also," he said, sitting back down, "we don't even feed her that brand."
A few minutes passed.
"So, she's fine right?" I asked.
"She's fine," he confirmed. "You? Questionable."
How he tolerates me and my ludicrousness, I will never know. The man deserves some kind of medal.
