About a year ago I made a big decision when I adopted our dog.
He is actually a good dog except he has a lot of special quirks.
He has a neurological disorder that limits his mobility and makes him rather difficult to deal with on a daily basis. He was continually falling into things, flopping onto the ground, and panicking when he couldn’t get back up. However, we make it work, and we spend a lot of time together. Unfortunately, it seems like there are several triggers in life that make him get miserable and more frantic, apparently, air quality control is a one of his most scary areas of life, but yesterday I could not understand why he kept barking and growling as we sat around in ice cold air conditioner and enjoyed that it was brutally hot outside. I was glad to be sitting indoors, with a cooling unit chugging away in the background to give fresh and clean air to the apartment. I was more than happy to sit right in front of the window AC units and enjoy all of the cool air that was passing through the vents. However, clearly my dog did not feel the same way about the indoor air temperature control. He was flinging himself over around the room barking, looking uneasy at the air conditioner units and the box fan on the floor. If I turned off the air conditioner devices, my dog calmed right down, but then the indoor air temperature increased until he started panting and complaining about the air quality. At the end of the day, he had to get used to the AC unit and I had to keep my cool.
