I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.

For me they are the role model for being alive.

The Many Phases of Waiting

Excited: "Let's go! Let's go! Let's go!"


Optimistic


Annoyed (and no longer making eye contact)

I'm taking too long!

Discouraged


Indignant


Downright dejected

I would SO like to have the simple life of a dog when it's time to go...nothing to remember...nothing to forget.

Sometimes it takes everything you have to get the humans to pay attention and do their job.

Terrorzinhos, Stumpy isn't very vocal.

Sugar, Don't give her any ideas.

Jan, Wouldn't that be nice!

Carey, she has been known to doze while waiting for me.

Mr. Nubbin, Another Academy award winning performance?

Elyse and Riley, These cattle dogs are experts in manipulation! Of course,Stumpy got to go!

Kari, I never have to wonder what she's thinking!

Sallie, another Master Manipulator, eh?

Tucker, it's a good things you dogs need us for a few things or we'd totally be left in the dust!

Mango, Stumpy's workin' it 24/7!

Lorenza, It's a good thing she's not on the clock, I'd be broke!

Wyatt, the dreaded phone call is the worst!

KJ, Love is an awesome thing to see, whereever it might be seen!

Roo, I get that look A LOT!

rottrover said...

Stumpy, you speak for us all! UGH!!

giantspeckledchihuahua said...

Rottrover, maybe she should run for office?!?

Stella said...

Stumpy, I don't know about your waiting thing, my Mom does it too. I think following them around while they find keys, etc, works best of anything. They might get mad at that though.

But what I wanted to tell you is just that you get prettier every day.

Cheers,
Stella
