Clever Beastie

Animals, like children, are extremely clever beings.  Take our dog, Lulu, for instance.  She looks so pitiful, doesn't she?  Before you break out the oohing and cooing, let me present my case.

Here's her dog house...that's 3 bedrooms and 2 baths.  She does not stay outside.  Ever.  During the summer, she sleeps on the floor.  Wintertime, she's in our bed.  On MY side.  Wench!  And she must be lifted in and out as jumping isn't so hot for her back.  It's Himself's fault.

Her butler...

The thorn in her side maid...

Easy livin', right?  I'd say so.  And I've never met a canine with such a sensitive stomach.  My poor laundry room will never be the same.  I swear she plans it.  "Let's see, hmmm, it's been seven whole days since Mom cleaned the laundry room.  Can I get a cleanup in aisle 3, please?"  I pity the sucker that pulls up that linoleum.  Get your hazmat suit, hon!

Which leads us to Lulu's chef...yes, I said chef because I'm currently cooking the dog her dinners because nothing is agreeing with her.  White rice and ground beef.  For a dog.  Only in America.

You can't tell me she doesn't know what she's doing!

Man's best friend, my fat fanny!

TGIF, y'all!


  1. Well, man is certainly HER best friend! She's adorable!

  2. I will say up front I frequently get slammed for my, "Dogs don't live in the house," stance. I will also confess that Sam, our Lewellyn Setter, has a problem maintaining weight. He won't eat if it is too hot....unless it is mixed with gravy. That dog loves gravy. So, I keep the drippings from frying meat in a jar and make up gravy in half gallon batches for him.

    When we got Sam we also had to build a new cement kennel and a dog house inside a new building. He has a heated water bowl and in the summer we freeze water in gallon buckets and put in his bowl.

    All our dogs are house broke but Sam only gets in rarely because every time he does he pees on my side of the bed!!

  3. LOLLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!! I have to cook my dogs green beans, peas & carrots with rice...they are so friggin spoiled!! They are always the house too...rotten animals!!
