Today I am thankful for our dog. Isn't he adorable? He's a Cock~ a ~poo . A Cocker Spaniel ~Toy poodle breed. . He was a gift for my husband 5 years ago.. and at the time My best gift idea was not as well received as I had hoped. You see he was a fluffy puppy, * 6 weeks old)* that resembled a "girlie slipper".
Now my husband is not a by any count a Macho Man, he just couldn't see himself walking around with a "girlie" dog.. He was wanting a rough & tough, "man's best friend kind of a dog". One that he could pick up toss in his truck and off they would go.... He wasn't really happy that he had to be the one to "house train " him and to teach him other commands.. A few he is still learning.... Like the "Come, Now!.. not when you get ready" ( he has a mind of his own for sure) but let me assure you today this "girlie" dog would rather sit with his Master, ride in the truck with his master, and walk with his master than he would with me. ( Except on those rare occasions when he get left behind with me.) He chases the chickens off the porch and if they are eating leftover scraps and compost in the garden he wants his share too. He is picky about Dog treats ..strange as that sounds. He knows which drive though services had out the best ones...the bank & gas station to name a couple...and best of all...
He loves to roll in all those "Nasty" things, you know the stuff...deer pooh, cow pies and road apples , dead fish, & any road kill he can find.. He fortunately doesn't mind taking the frequent baths that follows his adventures... and He really
Loves his "master" and his Master Loves him and would be heartbroken as would I if anything ever happened to him.. So we allow him to pretty much rule the house and yeah he sleeps at the foot of our bed too... (mostly at my feet) So I am thankful he's a little "girlie" dog. Do you have a Man's or Woman's best friend?
