Lightning wants in and out and in and out......all the time I'm home. I can't just let him go wander around the yard because he keeps finding crap and eating it and getting sick. Every time I look up, he's staring at me with the pleading, imploring, big brown eyes. See the pics below - all the way the end - for proof. Could you tell that face no? I can't, but I really want to stay where I am in my warm cozy spot. It's freezing ass cold outside, and I have no desire to be out in it. I really admire all the folks who live where it's really cold. I don't know how you do it. I just want to stay inside with a few blankets and fuzzy socks and watch Thor (the movie....we didn't get another dog and name him after a Viking god....though that would be a great name for a dog).
Then there's Thumper. Thumper thinks wherever I am, he needs to be. Like in the very same space....the same spot on the couch....the same spot on the bed.....the same spot when I'm standing. There is no getting away from him. And he loves to watch TV so he's quite happy to steal my blanket while I'm watching Thor and Lightning begs.
I don't understand what's going on with them. Does anyone else experience this with their dogs? How the heck do you handle it? Maybe I should run away......hmmmmmm.
Anyway, I leave you with some pictures from my evening with my two codependent slightly neurotic dogs. Love these stinkers....but I really would like to just stay warm and watch my movie uninterrupted.
