The bed!! Her kibbles! Rawhide chewies.
Cats under the blanket. Brother Fozzy stealing her chewies.
Honey does not play with toys. Not a one.
To the bedroom. =)
Her frog impression. She sits very well. Finding a comfy spot on a very crowded bed.
Honey is a rescue we brought home in December of 2007. She had been physically abused, deprived of adequate food and water, and was kept outdoors 24/7. She was deathly afraid of men. Both her hind leg knee ligaments were completely severed.
Honey is more than a little neurotic (I would be too!) and doesn't play with toys, swim or enjoy walks, and trembles and pants if she has to ride in the car.
She likes her kibbles and she LOVES sleeping on the bed. We built stairs so the animals could get on and off our king size bed more easily. You know how some dogs will start hopping up and down, or twirling around, when you pick up a leash? Honey does the same thing when you head toward the bedroom. =) She just loves sleeping with us.
Honey had never met a cat before, and she was pretty fascinated with our three kitties at first, but she's gotten used to them now and they've established sort of a nervous friendship. It didn't help that her first experience with a cat was after she climbed into the bed for the first time, settled in with a big, deeeeep sigh, stretched out her back legs in her typical "frog-leg" position -- and then a lump under the blanket right next to her started moving around. =)
Honey was pretty surprised, to put it mildly, and jumped about three feet into the air. For over a year, she couldn't relax if there was a cat under the blankets. She would sit, vigilant, tense and ready to do... what? Attack? I don't think so. Avoid being startled again? You'd think she'd be used to it by now... I'm not sure why she was did that. She made a huffle-whine sound, too.
At any rate, Honey, who used to tuck her tail between her legs whenever she met someone new, is starting to relax. She still doesn't like car rides, but that's prolly because of her back legs. She still barks when anything moves -- regardless of species, or whether it's inanimate -- because she thinks she's supposed to be a guard dog.
Can you imagine people trying to turn a Golden into a guard dog?
*shakes head sadly*
But she's a happy girl these days, although that means she feels relaxed enough to be herself -- which is just a little witchy. *g* That's OK. She can be alpha if she wants to. No one else in the family minds a bit.
Call me ??--don't call me late for meals
