When crazy, out-of-control Delilah first came to us, we had hopes that some of Sampson’s manners and habits would wear off on her.
Years went by, and Delilah learned to trust us more, and gained a bit more self-control, and slowly, we began to see some of Sampson’s traits.
The one that stands out the most to me, is something I call HamBone.
Without a doubt, Sampson is a HamBone. The times when it’s most apparent is when we come home from work. That’s the time when he’s SO happy to see us, and when his smile really comes out.
Both Hubby and I make it a point to acknowledge Sampson first, and then he usually gets some loving. If for some reason that doesn’t happen, that’s when the feet go up in the air and the smile comes out.
Delilah’s taken to lying on her back and wiggling her body about, waiting for us to love on her. Friday night when Hubby got home, Delilah pulled out all the stops.
First she grabbed a toy and carried it in her mouth to her Daddy. Of course, he gave her a little bit of attention, then he went and laid on the floor with Sampson.
Delilah wiggled around on the floor on her back. Then she came over and nudged the back of Hubby’s neck with her nose. She got a toy and pranced about trying to get Daddy’s attention.
Finally the Daddy sat down and little Delilah was happy at last. She climbed up on his lap, and stretched right out, HamBoning like there was no tomorrow.
I said, “What a HamBone!”
Hubby and I just laughed, what else can you do?
What did your pet do that made you laugh this week?
You make me laugh, or smile. The sweet, funny, loving things dogs do that make us laugh or smile.
