We loves our doggies here in the Unraveling household.
First, there is my dog, Schatzi. She was a darling little pup.
Now she is an old gal. Twelve years old. Grizzled. White faced. Yet, still darling and ever willing to offer her tummy for a rub.
Schatzi and I are morning pals. We walk 3 miles most weekdays.
I know, it's hard to imagine those short little legs could go so far, but she runs all the way. At twelve. Shoot, that's eighty-four in dog years. But tiny dogs stay younger longer than big dogs do.
Schatzi is nice to snuggle with.
She fits in lots of cozy spaces.
And she makes a darned good little bed warmer on a cold and frosty night.
Then there are our granddogs, Zelda and Snooty.
Snooty and Zelda were litter mates. They "belong" to our children. But they live with us now, as our children are world travelers. Someday they won't live with us any more and we will miss them. But our house will be much quieter.
Zelda is the Boyo's dog. She is famous for her baby harp seal look.
Snooty is the Girlie's dog. She likes to get under things, like our bed.
She sleeps there all night. Until I get up to go walk with Schatzi. Then she crawls out from under the bed and snuggles with Mr. Celia. Of course, this does not happen when the Girlie visits. On those occasions, she sleeps under the Girlie's bed and snuggles with her.
Snooty is the trick dog in the family. Zelda can catch treats if you throw them to her, but Snooty can jump up into your arms,
and she can dance, and if you point your finger at her and say, "Bang!" she will roll over and play dead.
They are lovely girls, don't you think so?
Of course, there are other dogs who we admire. Like grumpy Niles, our chiropractor's dog.
Or Shorty, who moved to Washington with Gayle.
And let's not forget Jeannie, who is often found tucked inside Pamela's jacket.
But, oh my gosh, we loves our doggies best.
If you ever come over to our house you'll be greeted by a cacophonous doggie hello. I believe our doormat is self explanatory.
