Even though I embrace and accept that I have a major case of OCD, I confess to occasionally losing my mind for a moment and indulging in crazy, outlandish and extremely spontaneous decisions. They are never little decisions either, except where hair product purchases are involved. They are usually huge decisions that should require careful thought; however, I make them on the fly and am lucky so far that they ultimately better my life in the long run even if they usually have huge, immediate and occasionally catastrophic impact on my life as usual at the time. Wandering around Europe with no money, living in my car for three months after telling my dad’s side of the family to kiss off, picking having a baby over my career and my company, marrying Jason, and divorcing Jason are all examples of this behavior. So why would adopting Kodi aka Kodiak Bear on a whim be any different? For months, I’d been searching the rescue shelter pages for a lab or lab mix. Why so specific? Well, first, I love labrador retrievers, particularly English labs with their big, square heads. And second, I love their disposition and willingness to get dirty and wet and go frolic about with you with a devil-may-care attitude. I know many dogs have similar dispositions but seriously, how many dogs would do this on a regular basis?
By the way, don’t try that at home, kids.
