~I knew Buddy needed to go out and do his business, but for some reason, my big watch dog was either very lazy or afraid of the dark. He would drag me out of bed to go for a run in the morning, but when it’s time to relieve himself for the night, he acts like outside is a strange place. Standing at the wide open door, I pointed out and said very firmly, “Buddy, go pee.” To which he answered by whining and lying down. “Come on, Buddy, Mommy had a rough day, please go pee!”
Buddy huffed loudly and rested his head on his paws. Not wanting to spend the next hour arguing with my dog for the entire neighborhood to watch, I went to my last resort. I bent over, half picking him up and half dragging him outside to use the bathroom. Once on the grass, he lifted his leg and did his business then walked back inside on his own accord.
We are known as ‘the sisters’ among our neighborhood; when actually we’re probably really known as ‘the sisters with the Yorkies’. Our pups, Skippy Jon Jones and Captain Jack Sparrow, were given long names to compensate for their small size but not their large personalities.
If Leah’s not glued to her electronic devices, AKA her Kindle Fire and various laptops, you can find her training ‘the attack dogs’, running on the treadmill while conceiving the next great book idea with the Dave Matthews Band, Muse, Florence and the Machine, The Lumineers, and Pink (just to name a few) blaring out of her earphones.
If Megan’s not glued to her electronic devices AKA her iPad and Nook Color, you can find her teaching fourth graders, swimming marathon style at the pool, or cuddling with ‘the attack dogs’ as she watches Duck Dynasty, Gold Rush, Scandal, Person of Interest, Morning Joe, etc.
Leah graduated from Edinboro University with a BA in Art Education. Megan received her teaching degree from Edinboro University and Masters in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Technology from Grand Canyon University.
