Work-life balance (or seeking pets)

In Being Cute, Shelley and Zoey, Shelley Widhalm on October 4, 2015 at 5:30 am

I am seeking attention, and I get it, because I'm really cute!

I am seeking attention, and I get it, because I’m really cute!

I love to get attention, and I love to get pets, so what I do is hang out with my BFF Shelley as she writes and stare down the passersby.

As they approach, I sit taller and wiggle my tail, focusing my attention on them, as if I’m saying, “Here I am, here I am.”

Seventy-five percent of the time—this is when Shelley and I are at the coffee shop and she’s writing and I’m on the lookout—people stop and say, “Isn’t she cute?” They pause, and Shelley—thankfully—asks them if they want to pet me. And they usually say yes, and I always say yes.

They stop, and I get the attention I need and deserve.

I hear things like I’m a magnet, I’m pretty, I’m beautiful, I have a cute face, I’m darling, and I’m lovable. I’m such a lover. I’m a good girl.

In fact, I’m the cutest dachshund ever. Wouldn’t you agree from seeing my pictures?

I am cute hanging out on my bed with my teddy bear.

Here I'm getting ready to take a nap on two pillows!
