My wifey and the kids actually wanted a dog.
I didn’t want 1 but, of course, the people I was with and I got a dog anyway; However, I was adamant that the dog was not allowed on the furniture, my family agreed and, to my surprise, the dog never actually seemed to want to go up on the furniture. For 1 thing, it’s a actually small dog, but I suppose it’s actually our radiant floors that keep the dog ecstatic on the floor. He seems actually satisfied to just soak in the heat all afternoon long. About five years ago, I talked my wifey into having our central heating system substituted with new electric radiant floors. It was a lot of work and it made a large mess. However, when it was all said and done, the people I was with and I were all actually ecstatic to have the radiant floors. The heat radiates upwards and our whole house stays moderate and comfortable all Winter time long. It saves a lot on our electric bill too. Of course, when the people I was with and I got the radiant floors installed, the people I was with and I couldn’t afford to pay for them all at once. We are still paying off the bill. My wifey prefers to complain about the $50 a month that the people I was with and I are still paying. However, she had all but stopped complaining now that the people I was with and I got the dog. If she does bring it up, I just tell her the people I was with and I got the radiant floors for the dog. However, this backfires too. If I complain about the mess the dog makes, my wifey reminds myself and others of the large mess that installing the electric floor is made. There actually is no comparison.
