Well, it’s almost here. Yup, it’s almost time for Parker to swing into full-tilt “Screaming Little Hellion” mode. I can’t wait for it to be over.

Why is breeding season always so painful? Well, I’ll tell you why it’s painful to me. It’s because Parker makes my ears bleed for about two months. I leave the room, he screams. I come back into the room, he screams. I go to the bathroom, he screams. I try and take him out of his “room,” and he takes a whack at me. Picky, picky, picky. I know he’s just acting the way he should, that he’s only doing what his instincts are telling him to do.

But I don’t have to like it. In preparation for when he’s in full swing, I am currently charging up my iPod and stocking up on the sedatives. We’ll both survive, each in our own way.
