We have all heard the term ‘LAP DOG.’
How about ‘HUG DOG?’
I was relaxing and enjoying my book (after a 5 hour road trip yesterday, hence the tired look on my face) And my new BFF joined me for some ‘closeness’
Zack and Sparky are spending the week with us while their family is on vacation. I told you about Sparky’s story back here. He is a rescue boxer like our Ozzie, and he had a really sad beginning; left outside tied up 24/7 with no training or proper food/medical care. He has only had his new family for a few months and he has come a long way. HE is a really sweet boy, but with no focus at all…except when he is ready to cuddle. And by cuddle, I mean DOG HUG. The night before last as the girls and I were watching a movie, we had this scene above but with his NOSE in my neck. I felt every single inhale and exhale.
I told the coach, there was more heavy breathing in my ear/neck that night than I had ever had in my whole life. ( and no, he was not jealous)
But can you tell a boy that needs love and attention to get down? HECK NO!!! Plus it is the only time he stops moving…he is full of nervous energy still.
And this is the senior citizen Zack. He is 8 years old and SOOOO the alpha male.
He is quite large too…85lbs while the others are about 55-60.
I have to say that things are going very well with the four dogs…and it all peaceful and fun…..UNTIL the Coach gets home.
When he gets down on the floor for doggie love (which we all need daily)…they go berserk and are fighting for his affection. I told him: he only causes chaos.
