To let my readers into my world a bit I am departing from my usual post. If you like the change please let me know! Your response will determine whether I do more posts like this one once and awhile.
A few months ago we acquired a new dog. His name is Bean. He is a Shorkie, half Yorkshire Terrier, half Shih Tsu mix with beautiful brown eyes.
Bean is a little dog with a big bark. He has been called “Killer” because of the way he looks when he barks – ferocious and how he barks – at everything. Believe it or not when he was a puppy his barking was worse.
The best way to get Bean to stop barking is to say, “Bean, do you want to go to your room?” His room is the kennel and “NO” he does not! He shuts up until the next thing comes along.
Pets are a trial in patience. Two weeks ago he ate half of a large raw potato. After that he had digestive problems. One morning I got up and went sliding through his poop. (Oh, Crap!) During the night Bean had lost control. He made a mess by the back door and in the living room. We are SO glad he is back to normal.
One of Bean’s favorite pastimes is dinner. When dinner is ready I always say “OK! Dinner’s ready.” When he hears me say, “OK!” he starts to bark, calling everyone to the table. Before he ate the raw potato we fed Bean people food. When he is at the table he rarely barks. He is so intent on watching for tasty morsels from his humans.
His next favorite activity comes after dinner. When we ask him if he wants to go for a WALK he starts jumping in the air almost to our waists. He is excited but he doesn’t bark. He just jumps for joy. While outdoors he smells for “messages” from other dogs on trees and bushes. He loves to see little people, friendly adults and other pets. He runs after squirrels and chipmunks as if he could climb trees.
Our pets in the past have been cats. A dog is a new experience. My husband likes dogs because he isn’t allergic to dogs. Shorkies have an added plus. They have hair like humans.
I have to admit dogs are a lot of fun. But I am still a cat woman. 😊 I love the peace and quiet. This is a picture of my favorite cat, a Russian Blue. His name was Pepper.
