Welcome to this week’s edition of Follow-Up Friday, the post where I highlight awesome comments, answer reader’s questions and generally just wrap up my week.
Jan K said, “Luke sits at the door as well if we go outside without him. Cricket will usually get on the back of the couch in the office to watch. They are usually in those same positions when I get home from work too. I wonder….do they stay there all day, or do their inner clocks tell them when it’s close to time for me to be coming home?”
Many times my guys are waiting for me at the top of the stairs when I come home. But there are just as many days where they come out of one of the bedrooms when I come home, so I know they are not there all day. I think they somehow know when it is time for their peeps to come home and then get up and wait. I know when I’m home and waiting for Hubby to come home, there are many times they just get up and go wait for him, either at the top of the stairs or in front of a window.
Jan said, “It’s taken a long time to convince my dogs that there is no back door in the bathroom. I would prefer not having eight eyes watching me do my “business.””
You’re so lucky! They only watch you? I swear sometimes I can’t do anything without Delilah 8 inches away from my face, and that includes the potty!
Cupcake said, “Mom laughs her head off when she is in the kitchen and hears running, sliding, banging, and squeaking coming from the living room. When she peeks in, she sees me playing with 3 or 4 toys at once – zooming and jumping on and off the couch and chair and throwing toys to myself along the way. She calls it playing with the jackasses in my head.”
BWA HA HA, the jackasses in your head. I LOVE IT!!
Daisy said, “We often say we wish we had shoulder cams like cops do so we could record all those who-saw-THAT-coming moments of Daisy’s. The best stuff never makes it to the camera. ”
Monika said, “I’m sure Go-Pro cameras were created especially for characters like D-Dog! ”
We do have a Go-Pro Camera! I’ve got to figure out how to record her, she is a freaking hoot sometimes!
Jan K said, “Our beagle Kobi was never really a big mischief maker, but the time he spit out a dead mouse at my feet was definitely a classic!”
OMG what did you do? One time Sampson actually had a LIVE mouse in his mouth. If I remember the story, my daughter found it, was showing it to my mom when the mouse jumped out of her hands. Sampson must have thought it was a game of catch, because he caught the mouse as he made the leap. He stood there with the mouse’s tail hanging from his mouth, while my daughter freaked out. My mom had the presence of mind to say, “Drop it.” And he did. Then they had to find the mouse because it hid.
Sand Spring Chesapeakes said, “Holy cow, glad it was just a butter knife and not a real one. ”
Me too! Since we didn’t get it on video, we are guessing she didn’t have the whole knife if her mouth, and that some of it might have been sticking out on the side we couldn’t see. Still as I said to my vet, I’m down to three spoons…
Frankie and Ernie said, “So was Delilah saying…… “Come on you two… SPREAD that food around” ?”
BOL oh Frankie and Ernie, you guys are so witty!
Sherrie Petrie for Pepper said, “I was very, very bored one day because Mom & Dad weren’t playing with me so I was looking for something to do. My favorite pastime is ripping Kleenex to shreds. So I put my front paws up on the coffee table where they are kept and Mom yelled at me to get down. I waited until they weren’t looking and jumped up ON THE COFFEE TABLE. Boy did that get a response out of Mom, I just stood there while Mom turned RED and Dad was gasping from trying NOT TO LAUGH. ”
Oh my word Miss Pepper, please don’t tell Delilah or give her any ideas she could actually stand on such places as tables, counters, stoves. I shudder to think about it!
Emma said, “That is usually the story of our life here in Minnesnowta. We had grass for a few weeks, but got a fresh load of 10″ of snow on Sunday night. We all love it since we didn’t get much snow this winter, but it is melting fast…this year from the top and bottom. It will be gone soon and I bet you will see grass soon too.”
Minnesnowta, LOL Emma. Actually, we’ve had some warmer days, and are no longer at Glacial Status, but you can keep your snow, I’m waving the white flag.
Elaine said, “Oh, I hate it when that happens. The poor dogs start to walk on the crusty top and then break through. Haley ripped one of her dew claws from that.”
That is definitely concerning. In our case, the snow was very solid and could hold my weight. I try and keep the dogs off the snow if I’m not sure it’s stable.
Frankie and Ernie said, “WE confess…. We are Yard Yappers…. We need to join BA . That is what Mom says, anyway. PLUS Ernie Barks at EVERY Animal he sees on the TV… and THAT gets on M & D’s Nerves… Hello I am Frankie and I’m a BARKER… Hello I am Ernie and I am Also a BARKER
You guys always make me laugh. Yard Yappers.
Hey how about a song about it? Sing it to the tune of the Dr. Pepper song.
I’m a barker, he’s a barker, she’s a barker we’re all barkers, wouldn’t you like to be a barker too?
That’s it for me, I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
