Wonderful Wednesday Personal Blog
This is Spring Break for us and we've been so busy! Lots of jobs around the house, visitors, and pretty weather (well, until today). And thank goodness the back yard fence is complete! The dogs are over the moon, and so am I!
I thought I'd share a bit of tongue-in-cheek wisdom about German Shepherds and the way they view things. It's actually pretty accurate for our girl, Freki. The following chart is a fair idea of how things are here.
I don't remember who sent me this, but my thanks to the originator, whoever it may be!
'Wilson' is her favorite toy. Unless Ben has something. Notice I did not say 'something more interesting'. Just 'something'. Anything at all. Funny thing is, he knows it and will sometimes grab a toy just to get her to drop the bone she's chewing on. He will act put out for a moment, then go get the bone he wanted all along. End of play.
She has her own bed. It's super big and fluffy and she really likes it. But this is the little dogs' bed (Dixie rarely uses one, and often prefers a folded blanket or the cold floor) and Freki just wanted to remind everyone it should be considered hers. Even if she no longer fits on it.
They have a large basket of toys, more 'on rotation' in the closet, and a pile waiting to be mended. Yet, Freki plays with Wilson (and yes, she knows which toy Wilson is) with another toy in her mouth, and can sleep on top of several at a time. As far as she's concerned, they are all hers. Rule number 4 comes into play a lot around here.
I have to say, rule 10 above is incorrect. It should read, "If it's broken, mom will throw it away and Freki will pine for it."
Until Ben goes and gets another toy. Back to rule 4.
