OBSESSIVE DOODLE DISORDER

By Monday, February 1, 2016 36 Permalink

I’ve messed around and caught a case of Obsessive Doodle Disorder, more commonly known as ODD in the Doodle world. It’s a condition spreading rapidly throughout this country and it seems to last a lifetime…

This is what I’ve discovered from all the research I’ve done

ONCE YOU GET IT – “YOU’VE GOT IT” –

Forget about a vaccine – The National Institute of Health isn’t working on one  #nofunding

The symptoms are mild – at first. Generally the first organ it attacks is the heart. It swells when you’re around them and aches like the doodle when you’re away.

AT FIRST YOU’RE –

  • hypnotized by those big beautiful eyes
  • entertained by the head tilts and the way they use their paws
  • bewildered by the way they sleep – on their back, stretched out, legs up in the air

Gradually your deductive reasoning becomes affected and you loose your ability for rational thinking.

NEXT YOU –

  • throw birthday parties for them AND expect other humans to attend
  • start to speak “Doodle” i.e. Doodletastic – Doodlelicious – Absodoodletutely
  • replace human children photos for doodle photos throughout the house
  • give up manicures for grooming bills
  • stare at them for hours searching for that mini human inside #youknowhesinthere
  • choose their company over humans way too often
  • pass up a beverage and eat dry chicken nuggets so they can have ice cream #nodebitcard
  • get agitated if the person you’re with doesn’t ask about them
  • don’t just talk to them – you have conversations with them

For years I’ve tried to camouflage my feelings. I was so afraid to speak out.

Then I found others just like me #thankyouJesus

More people are being self diagnosed each and every day. More people are speaking out!…

This is becoming a nation wide doodledemic.

When I sought out to find other ODD pet parents  –  hundreds stepped forward and they all have it just as bad as I do.

I mean – look at these adoodledorable faces will you?

WHO CAN RESIST THOSE FACES? –

I know I can’t…

I have no doubt there are similar cases out there with other breeds, but since I am not a trained licensed medical expert – I can only discuss my particular diagnosis.

BUT I CAN OFFER YOU THIS –

After watching the video should you feel yourself coming down with an acute case of ODD – let us know.

The Boys will be hosting “Hug Clinics” twice a month #nocopay

    I have OGD – Obsessive Golden Disorder – I’m that way with Golden Retrievers. Which is why I had to have a second one after I got my first. And why I keep wanting a third now that the first is in Heaven. But I can’t for several reasons. At least not now. And it hurts, but it’s for the best.

      I so understand your pain – it took me an incredibly long time (at least it felt like that) before I could go for a third one. It’s all about personal healing and for me too it was other things. The wait was PAWfect because it brought us Jaxson, so be patient and take all the time you need. You’ll know when the time is right. #trustyourself

    Hahaha… you Doodles sure are cute. I don’t think this disorder would be such a bad thing to have. 😉

      Actually Ann, it’s quite therapeutic – seems to cure almost everything else to include the common cold!

    I have it!… and I love it!
    I require no drugs, x-rays, ultrasounds, treatments… I just need to look at those eyes and I feel so much better!
    And I love this support blog that you’ve got going, Cathy, Harley and Jax! Thank you for confirming my diagnosis! Pedro will be thrilled!

    We suffer from OCD. I believe there is even a t-shirt and bumper sticker to identify those suffering from this affliction. 🙂

    You KNOW I “suffer” with this “disorder.” Can’t walk by someone who has a doodle without chatting for a few minutes… can’t wait to share the latest photo of Dash or Lilly ready for the Broncos game complete with jersey and pom poms… can’t kiss their noses enough…. can listen to Dash snore for hours… love to make Dash tilt his head and Lilly perk up their ears as I talk to each of them… oh Lord I have it bad!!! Great post Cathy!
