Wikipedia defines Normal as "conformance to an average."
On the way home from the Kimberley trial Wendy, Cindy and I were discussing normal. Wendy said I am not normal. I asked her to give me a reason.
"You have four dogs"
"You work, and live for your dogs"
I told her that I was insulted. Of course I am normal.
I have four dogs in a small house. I spend every spare penny I have on dog stuff, or trials. I Have no spare time left because it is all spent with the dogs. I Spend four nights a week teaching other peoples dogs. I Have no friends outside of dog friends. Have nothing else to really talk about except dogs. I Have Corgi figurines and such in my house displayed with pride. All the pictures etc on my walls are of my dogs, or dog related. I have four dogs to share my bed, and four dogs to share the couch with. I have to Vacuum once a day to keep the hair downl. I often check my drinks and food for stray hair. I read dog blogs everyday and search the internet for new and interesting dog sites. I work at a dog daycare. I hear barking in my sleep. My cell phone and computer wallpaper is a picture of my dogs. I rarely take photos that are not dog related, I carry photos of my dogs in my wallet....the list could go on and on.
Those are all normal things, that lots of people do.
In all seriousness I do consider myself mostly normal. I am only a little quirky, and bossiness is a normal trait. Right?
