Are You Watching Auntie?

Mabel amazes me with her childlike ways. I heard Sherri Shepherd say yesterday that people should have a child because a dog can't tell you, "Mommy I love you!" HORSE FEATHERS!

My dog communicates loud and clear her feelings, emotions, happiness and displeasure ALL the time. Often when romping at the creek, she will stop playing with friends, run to me with a big silly grin on her face and give me the biggest booty shake ever before returning to her pals. If that's not the canine equivalent of, "Mommy, I'm having SO much fun!" I don't know what is!

But the funny thing is, she does this to my friends too!  Just yesterday, Hank and Sue's Mom was petting her when Bart wandered in for some scritches. So Mabel immediately turns and slapped Bart's mom on the knee with her paw... "Hey, PET ME!"

This photo below is a prime example... taken by Bart's Mom. Mind you, Mabel won't look at MY camera! She had just rescued this tree from drowning and was about to give it some branch to mouth resuscitation when her auntie had to take a phone call. You know that sound humans make when we're perturbed??? Exhaling, "UH!"?? When Mabel realized her auntie had stepped away and was not watching her, that's the sound she made!

And she waited... the poor tree left all alone struggling for breath, waiting for rescue! Mabel played in the water a bit, chased Bart. But ONLY when her auntie was off the phone and paying attention did the poor tree receive it's life saving help!

Love is where you find it. I've said it before (and I'm sure I will again!): Most of the people I know have let me down or hurt me. Dogs...never have.

I guess Sherri Shepherd has never had a dog. I love Mabel. She is so funny.

We couldn't agree more. Each of us has our own special way of showing that love. All Phantom has to do is look at Mom with those penetrating eyes and she feels loved all over. And even Lightning, for as much trouble he gets into and as many reprimands from Mom, he is always right there at her feet when she sits on the sofa or stands at the counter on her laptop. We have to agree that Sherri Shepherd has not experienced the love of a dog.

MOM say "Oh so true!" And I am VERY impressed with the stick! She is my kind of gal.

Oh you have that spot on. Our dogs express their love in so many ways. Dexter often looks at me when we are walking to say "this is GREAT!" I love his labragrin.
