We were at the mall today…and, well, long story short, I have a new computer. And it’s beautiful. It’s truly a beautiful thing.
It’s a MacBook Air. It’s light and beautiful and, compared to the monster that I used to have, it’s so thin.
I can’t complain about my old one. I’ve had it for years and years. It holds many memories. But taking it with me meant a massive effort in terms of weight. It weighs a substantial amount and I always had to debate whether it was worth the effort it required to get the benefit of using it. Most times, I opted to not have a computer just to spare my back.
Now, I have this light, beautiful computer in my hands and I can’t get over how nice it is.
You go to a breeder, where you find adorable little balls of puppies and one seems to recognize you on sight. It’s true love and you bring this little bundle home only to see it get sick. Panicked, you run to the vet where you find you find out: Oh, this breed is known for being sick.
In breeding dogs, like anything, there’s science and a bit of luck but if you’re interested in knowing which are the hardiest breeds, check out this post by a vet in the UK.
Nothing is ever completely guaranteed, of course, but when I hear the same breed is troublesome by several vets, I start to wonder. Bulldogs, for example, are a breed that I would buy in a minute. With their adorable wrinkles, super cute faces and hilarious personalities, I’d fall in love with one or two or three…But they seem to be in every vets’ list of unhealthiest dogs.
It isn’t easy to keep my heart away from those gentle-eyed doggies. I could easily get attached. But I remember how painful it was to have our bullmastiffs get sick over and over and hear them cry in pain. By comparison, our two akitas are as healthy as weeds.
