RTT: mon chien

J'embrasse mon chien sur la bouche.

Mon mari n'est pas comme elle.

Il ne sait pas lui que je connais.

-------------------------------------

I pulled the patio love seat out into the sun one afternoon. I laid down, basking in the sun. Sheila licked my toes. It was one of the best moments EVER!

Sometimes when she sleeps, one of her ears sticks up straight. She looks like she is flying.
From Adventures of the Grigg Boys

-------------------------------------

It makes me so happy to see her give up all consciousness and flop down wherever she is to nap after a long run. I fell like I have done my job as her loving owner.

-------------------------------------

It makes me very discouraged when she is boisterous and full of energy after a long run. I feel like a failure and maybe could have gone that extra mile (literally) if not for me, then for Sheila.

Ok .... maybe I don't feel like a failure, but still discouraged!
From Adventures of the Grigg Boys


-----------------------------------

When I have a treat in my hand and make her sit and wait for it, she looks like she is secretly negotiating with me, "give me that treat, and I'll lick your toes. You know you want me to."
From Adventures of the Grigg Boys

I sort of want to steal her from you. You wouldn't miss her terribly would you? She's adorable.

She is so cute, every time I see her I want to snuggle her a little bit.

We have a Foxhound mix that is a ball of energy. We can run her on the treadmill for an hour and she's still full of energy.

Aw, I totally don't feel like I'm doing our poor dog justice anymore. In my defense, her knees are really bad so she CAN'T exercise much, but still...

cute pics!

She's such a cutie. My dog used to love licking bare feet. I want to say that it grossed me out, but it was actually kind of soothing. I was trying like heck to translate the French sentences, since I took two years of French in high school, but apparently it didn't stick. Something about a dog's mouth. :(

Your "puppy" is darling (and about 10X bigger than my dachshund, lol! Love the pics, especially the "flying ear" one!
