People, people who give her treats, people who play tug of war with her.....people, in general.
People walking on "her" road, coming into "her" yard or getting too close to "her" car when she's in it.
"Newman," her stuffed Postal Worker, any and all round fetchable objects, throwing discs and especially any of the cat toys she knows she's not allowed to play with (She eats them!).
Anything and everything that "her" people are eating. Milk Bones are mandatory every morning! If you forget, she WILL remind you.
The perimeter of "her" yard, especially in the evenings. She must patrol!
"Finding" Newman to play with, herding the cats back to the porch so they can go in the house, catching and fetching her balls and discs, and her vain attempts at scaring away the hummingbirds.
She "picked" my husband when he was looking for a dog of his own.
Although she's huge (125+ lbs.), she has the heart and disposition of an angel and tries her best to be a lap dog. She mothers our two indoor cats and shares almost everything with them, except her kibble. If the cats are having a "disagreement," Morgan referees and sends them to their corners until they cool off. She's known for taking the catnip away from the cats if they don't finish it soon enough to please her.
She loves going for rides, especially the bank, where they always have treats for her, even though she insists on barking at the tellers through the window. If there's water around, she will always go through it, never around it. She even enjoys her baths and gets willingly into the tub.
She doesn't like thunder or gunshots and will practically mold herself into your body when she hears either. If it storms during the night we know she will be joining us on the bed and keep an old sheet handy for her to sleep on.
She's a joy 99.9% of the time, but will occasionally "test" her humans to see exactly where her boundaries are.
Update: Our Morgan has been diagnosed with bone cancer and, due to her age and the likelihood that the cancer has already spread, we have opted to bring her home and dote on her as long as we can. She's on pain meds and she's still trying her best to be her old self. We're doing our best to keep her comfy and keep her weight stable - she's lost about 20 pounds already. We're cooking especially for her and encouraging her to eat four or five small meals a day - not counting her treats. There's a tumor under her tongue that makes it difficult for her to eat anything crunchy - so no more Milk Bones, her favorite.
She's given us so many wonderful years and we're trying to give her the best we can until the end.
September 18, 2007 at 9:30 AM Morgan's battle has ended. She left this world with loving arms around her and sweet words whispered into her velvety black ears. Morgan was 11 years, 6 months, 1 week and 3 days old - a long, love-filled life for our Girl.
