Me, chasing flies, ear massages, the absence of children, belly rubs, ridding the world of evil squirrels, going to Puppy Camp (daycare), taunting Oliver (her feline brother), going to the p-a-r-k.
The elusive backyard squirrels, small children, thunder, getting up early, riding in the car, and people who dare ring our doorbell (the nerve!).
She LOVES to play fetch and tug of war with her rubber chicken. All I have to do is say "chicken" and she practically pees herself. She also loves the full-length mirror where she can gaze upon her fabulousness.
Filet of squeaky toy, chicken w/rice, cat treats, Frosty Paws!!, and anything I'm eating.
The Cincinnati Nature Center trails and the trails around our house. Sometimes deer are wandering around, which is like Disneyworld for her.
Pretending not to hear me.
I volunteer at an animal shelter so I see a lot of pathetic and pitiful babies come through the door. Until the day I saw her, I had had excellent willpower having only brought one kitten home. But one day, a little Golden Retriever puppy (or what looked like one) was sitting quietly in one of the isolation cages. She looked like she had given up on life. She had been dumped in a park and survived on her own for several weeks (what is wrong with people?). While most of the dogs clammered and barked for attention, she barely lifted her head to look at me. She was covered in ticks and fleas and her belly was extremely bloated with worms. Her coat was dingy and dull and you could see her spine. I decided to give her a bath to make her feel better and after an hour of washing grime/fleas/ticks off of her, I couldn't part with her. I carried her around like a baby for the next four hours. We soon discovered via her "special" bark that she is part beagle. She is a now petite, 35 lb princess whom the world obviously revolves around.
She is the most precious little girl. I adore her. People stop me when I'm walking her to tell me how beautiful she is and ask to pet her. This scares her terribly and she reacts accordingly. We're working hard on correcting that. She had a very hard start in life, so extra patience and love are sometimes required. With me, she is a gentle and loving soul who couldn't hurt a thing. She's just a bit fragile. I imagine she endured a lot of pain in the few months before I found her. To whomever mistreated her so badly I say....what goes around eventually comes around. Be happy I don't know who you are.
I don't brake for squirrels!
