She’s the boss of me…

About a week or so ago, one of my neighbours a couple of streets over, stopped to chat with me while I was working in the yard. Telling me they were going to Houston for a trip to visit his parents. Somewhere in the conversation a question came up, “would I… could I… possible consider keeping an eye on their dog while they were gone?”

The question caught me a bit off guard, first off all we are only passing “friends”, you know, the type of acquaintance where you meet them while walking or working in the yard, and you stop and chat for a few minutes. And second, looking after their dog for more than two weeks, the first time around, seems a bit long, I mean, what if the dog don’t like hanging out with me?

Now having said that, almost every time I run into them they have their dog with them, and she is the cutest thing, and since I love dogs, and can’t help myself, I always end up petting and playing with the dog.

I understood there had to be a reason why they would ask an “almost complete stranger” to look after their dog so I decided to say yes!

Turns out I was right. The person who normally look after their dog are sick and seriously so, and have taken a turn for the worse lately 😦

So last Thursday night my life got turned upside down, when I got “invaded” by this tiny fur-ball called Molly, a small Yorkshire terrier, who loves to play πŸ™‚

She is the cutest thing on four legs, with a big personally to match. She has already taken ownership of the whole house. As I mentioned, she loves to play and her toys are spread all over. Her favourite place is a corner of my sofa snuggled into a furry pillow and my favourite blanket!

She thinks she’s the boss (which she really isn’t.. well… maybe… just a little) and that makes for some interesting “tugs of war”, especially when I’m done playing, and she’s not πŸ˜‰ She’ll look at you with that cute face and with a wimpy voice, and with the look of “seriously you can’t possible mean we are done playing… pleaaaaaseeee!!!!” And then she’ll “kiss” me, which makes her super hard to resist!

The last couple of days she has gotten into a habit of stomping all over my bed when she thinks it time for me to get up, it’s a tall bed, but she can just about make the jump to get up there.. And that’s the end of the sleep for me. I think I need to put a stop to that right away.. if not I’ll never get my “beauty sleep” πŸ˜‰ hmmm, maybe she’s the boss after all πŸ˜‰

This morning for some obscure reason she decided that my thumb is a much better chew toy than her rabbit (which is her favorite toy), I’m not sure how much I enjoy having chew marks all over my fingers, you’d think she’s a baby teething rather than a grown dog… but I’m sure I’ll survive πŸ™‚

It’s been a while since last I had a dog living with me, so this makes for a couple of interesting weeks! She’s great company though…

To be continued!

    1. She’s a cutie alright πŸ™‚ and right now, she’s leaving me alone for a minute so I get to read my book alone, after a very, very active morning πŸ˜‰


    1. πŸ™‚ You never know!

      I might be sick of someone waking me up, disturbing my reading because she wants to play, dragging my butt out for a walk while is raining like crazy, nagging me for treats, just in general bossing me around! By the time she leaves!

      Then again… I might not πŸ˜‰
