    And makes you feel like a jerk. Story of my life.

    I especially love it when you say something and you have no idea what they think you said but they get all excited anyways. Then you have to burst their bubbles and break their little hearts.

    I talk too much to the dogs and was telling them that I needed to go to the grocery store and Summer's face lit up and she started jumping and dancing around. I forgot that I call Petsmart the store to them. I'm a bad person.

    I'm imagining you explaining your way out of that ;)

    I get Dance's hopes up all the time only to let her down haha. But it's so easy because she thinks like every third word that comes out of my mouth means we're off to do something super fun. I just laugh at her and apologize for the thousandth time.

    Making the dog all excited and then dousing his hopes with a "sorry kiddo" makes you feel like a blah blah blah. But it happens to the best of us. It's a good thing dogs don't hold grudges. Or do they? :eek:

    Happens all the time with Robyn. When ever we are out walking, every time I say the word good or anything that sounds remotely like cookie her head whips around with sparkling excited eyes. Then I laugh and pet her head and shatter her poor fat little heart..... Okay sometimes I give in a give her treat anyway. Apparently there are a LOT of words that sound like cookie! :lol-sign:
    Trin is always in her own little world and never listens to a word I say most the time :p
