Thank GOD my dog is so good!!!!
« on: January 14, 2008, 10:35:12 pm »
So, since my secret santa (Thank you again, Kathy!) sent Tani goodies which included some kind of spring shaped chewy thing called "Flossies" or something like that, Tani has become addicted! She loves loves loves them! I happened to find that a local pet store carries them, so I bring her one once and a while. Like today, for instance! So Tani is excitedly chewing away, very happy, and I'm off doing laundry. My four year old comes up to me (concerned because he thought the thing was a toy, not a consumable) and shows me the last two inches of the Flossy, saying "Look what Tani did to her toy!" Holy crap! He took it right out of her mouth! She is only 60 pounds and full grown, but so strong that if I sit on the floor and hold one end of her tug rope (another thank you to S.S. Kathy!) she can actually pull me along the carpet on my butt! I am so thankful to have this dog - she is perfect in every way! I know that instinctively, even the best dogs may be tempted to nip/growl if a kid snatched away their yummy treat. I am so proud of her for being unphased. I did tell my son to never ever take her stuff away from her like that, just in case. Whew. Pardon my brag, but I know you all understand!

Oh, and as I sit here right this very minute, getting ready to post this, my 2 year old came in, with Tani following. Tani's head was all wet! I asked my little son why Tani's head is wet and he said "I dump the milk on it!" Poor Tani! So, I have a big milk mess to clean up, including on my sweet puppy's head.  ;)

LOL! Tossed salad! That is too funny! I haven't participated (openly) in the "kid nap list" discussions, but I have to say that "little" Cattabrie is awesome. I love her markings. (Lettuce in the corner...HAHAH AHAHA!)

OK, first I'm laughing at the visual I had from the milk on the head, and the I could just picture a two year old saying "I dumped milk on it!!" all proud!!! 

Then I read helping to toss the salad!  And I think I actually might have snorted a little I was laughing so much!!!  Thank God I live alone!!!  I envisioned feet flying and butt hitting the floor!!

Good girl Tani!!!  Not a bad job by you either mom!!

Ditto that!!!

Puppy dogs are such wonderful little friends.They bring us so much joy and laughter into our lives. I think the word "comical" comes to mind!

I am so glad she enjoyed her presents.  Sounds like you are doing a great job mothering, both fur and skin kids.  Kisses to Tani for being such a good girl and sharing with her brothers, too.  The milk dumping is hysterical.  Keep up the good work.

Good job Tani!!  Isn't it nice to know if on the rare occasion we look away our pups are going to do the right thing.

Most of you know how hubby feels about Harley but the one thing he brags about is how gentle he is with the kids; if they try to take something from him; or pull food or toys from his mouth, he just sits there.

Well it looks like you will be going back to the store for more Flossies for such a good pup!
