I'm A Real Dog - Really I Am

Big excitement today. My Aunt Chrissy and Uncle Mike stopped in for a brief visit on their way to a funeral. So they didn't get to stay long. I love visitors but I have this habit of jumping up on their legs to say hi because I get so excited and I don't want them to have to bend down to see me. So Mom gave everyone a towel as they had shorts on. Uncle Mike just had knee surgery so he was off limits. But alas no one really had time to snuggle with me because it was a short visit. I was very sad.

Then my favorite Uncle Jesse came over and he always loves me. He tried to pick me up again, silly man. I get squirmy, all 26 pounds of me. Things were going great and I was happy again and then he said I wasn't a real dog. My feelings were hurt. He and Aunt Robbie always say that about Quigley and me. They think if you're under 50 pounds and short you're not a real dog. They like BIG dogs. Mom hates when they say that. So after everyone left Mom gave me a nice long backrub. I needed that. In the next life I hope they come back as Yorkies.

Mom and Grandma love me for me not how big I am so that makes me happy. Mom says if we were as big as Uncle Jesse's dogs we wouldn't be able to sleep on the bed with her. Now that would make me really sad. Mom says her favorite part of the day is when all 3 of us snuggle at night.

(Bol, our mom has an uncle Jesse!)
Well, we disagree with your Jesse human. We're here to tell you that big dogs are "just dogs". Kind of like big lumps. Not a drop of cuteness. Can't even pick them up! I suppose they're good for guarding/herding things and alarm barking and being police and war dogs, but really...for the delicate task of lifting of the spirit you need us, the small dog! Funny, smart, adorable, lively, entertaining! Jump in your lap and cuddle up! Give me a treat 'cause I'm so cute! You just don't get any of that with a big dog.
So don't mind what your Uncle Jesse says, he's a guy and easily deluded.
