Bio: Allie is the oldest of my three girls. She prefers to stay inside and sleep the day away, which makes her the perfect writing companion. As a puppy, I trained her to sleep in with me, which is great except when I have to leave early in the morning. Now, I have to physically pick her up out of bed to make her go outside. Not an easy task with a 65 pound, limp animal with four appendages. What’s the saying? - Hindsight is 20/20. Yup. Allie's OCD tendencies can be overwhelming and include: freaking out if you touch her while she is standing on a hard surface, not being able to eat without first carrying a mouthful of food across the house, and many others. Currently, her biggest issue is not wanting to go outside for fear of getting snow on her feet. Sounds terrible, yes?
