I don't know about you, but my two humans can be some right "clingy" folks. Seems like every time I get comfortable, they are all over me. Giving me a hug or a kiss - or "making" me roll over for a belly rub. Oh well! Wotcha gonna do? I do Loooove my treats at the end of the day.
Now I thought I'd throw out this little gem as my "Thought for the Day". It's by that very prolific author A. Nonymous: " The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue." So true, so true!
Now my "sister from another mother", Shaddow - is a good sized lady - at least compared to little ole me. She has some lab in her ancestry and is about 65-70 pounds, but she is a sweetie. Sometimes we go out together and play in the yard. Well, when she starts getiing warm, she usually walks 300 yards or so back to the ponds and walks right into the water for a dip. Looking back at me with a "Well - c'mon in. Water's fine." look.Where the water comes up to chest, the Diva would be drowning. "I. DON'T. THINK. SO!" I'm much too cute to get wet and mud-yucky! 'Sides - I prefer a good roll in the hay..... errr... Hold On! Get your mind out of the gutter. What I mean is that after my human has cut the grass and it is just beginning to dry, I like to roll in it and get that fresh, green scent on my fur. Honestly -you PEOPLE!
Everyone have a great week! Hugs, Kisses and Belly rubs for all!
Rural living - or a home in the country - Well! Where else would a diva live. Not much traffic, room to wander, private pool where my big sis and I can take a swim if we feel like it. And all at my beck and call! My human's are so well trained. Just stop by some time and you can observe for yourself. But I always make sure I don't overindulge. No need to upset the help you know. *Yawn*
Oooh. Excuse me. must be time for my nap. Til next time my darlings!
HUGs, Kisses and Belly Rubs for all - from THE DOGGIE DIVA!
Thats all for now - the reflections on kids and rural life I promised last time will be addressed in my next entry. I PROMISE. HUGs, Kisses and Belly Rubs for all - from THE DOGGIE DIVA!
A couple of my likes are basted doggie chews (hmmmmm! tasty!) and belly rubs - with a nice nap close to my top two. A couple of my dislikes - thunder (can't stand it - no how, no way) and big trucks running on the rumble strips on the highway that runs outside my house. YES! - My House. But I do have a couple of human companions that I allow to live there and take care of me and my big (adopted) sister - after all, have to have someone to give me belly rubs - my legs are too short to do it myself. I've started this blog since both my humans have one and want to balance with my views. I'm dictating everything to JWW for publication upon my final approval (he's fairly smart for a human.)
This is a pic of me and my big sis, Shaddow:
Shaddow is getting to be a bit of an elderly lady. Her birthday is coming up on August 11th, and on the canine count, she will be 77 (on the human calendar my companions use - she was born in 2001). She can still be spry sometimes and will play with me, but this hot Mississippi weather does make her tired. You see her bed that we're laying on above. She did tell me (confidentially) that she was really glad that JWW built if for her and got rid of the love seat she was using before. Its much easier for her just to step on to this than it was for her to jump up on the love seat. A lot of the time she would just give up and lay on the floor rather than try and jump on her old legs. Humans can be frustrating at times, but ours do seem to want to try and treat us well. Anyway, I'm gonna cut this off for now. Next time, I'll give some of my views/reflections on kids (human-type) and rural wildlife. HUGs, Kisses and Belly Rubs for all - from THE DOGGIE DIVA!
