    The canine face of bamboozlement.
    This went on for 5 minutes or more, with the squirrel doing a Spider Man around the tree, and the dog not smart enough to look up
    An apex predator, she is not.

    Max agrees. Or...perhaps a “sun couch”.

    Interesting tidbit.... The stuffed toy he has is one of 3 that he equates to each of our kids. One is off living on his own, the other two are in college. When on the phone, and jf we put it on speaker, he will go grab the toy associated with the sibling we are talking to. Quite amazing. If we tell him “Where’s Nick? Go get Nick!”...he returns with the appropriate toy as well. Start the pressure washer or the lawnmower? He hides. Bring out a rifle or any firearm? His tail won’t stop wagging. He’s very gentle with the toys too. Other stuff he’ll shred and rip out the stuffing. The kids’ ones?...TLC.

    He’s an odd duck!

    We've had a German Shepherd for a few years now, and my wife has grown to love him. She's not really a dog person, but he is an amazing dog and won her over. A few months ago my wife started pitching the idea of getting a smaller dog, perhaps a Chihuahua, as friend for Jake. He seems to love taking care of smaller animals, especially our cat and (now deceased) guinea pig. I've never had small dogs. My wife had wiener dogs when she was a kid, so I'm not sure were the Chihuahua idea came from, but there it was.

    We went out for dinner last Friday to restaurant that is in a local hotel. Unknown to us, our local animal shelter started an interesting program: Suite Pets. They put an adoptable dog in the lobby of the hotel for people to spend time with. You can even spend the night with the dog if you are staying in the hotel. The hotel has all of the dog's paperwork, so you can adopt right there. Well, guess what was hanging out in the lobby of the hotel: a two-year old Chihuahua. We spent almost two hours hanging out with the dog in the hotel lobby and ended bringing her home. I would never have guessed that we'd have any small dog in our house, and certainly not a Chihuahua, but she has completely won me over. She is the funnest, funniest, well-natured little dog I have ever been around. She LOVES her people and wants to be held or in someone's lap almost 24/7, and she loves to play. So far she has been tolerant of other people as well. We've heard that can be an issue with this breed, so we've been trying to expose her to as many people outside of her family as we can. So far, so good. She will shake around a new person at first, but she warms up and hasn't shown any signs of aggression. She and Jake are getting along great as well.


    This is from the hotel lobby the night we adopted her:

    Love these 2 to death, but damn they’ve been expensive this last 30 days. Spent more time in the vets office than I care to. Amazing how much of a PITA a broken toe is for a dog. And then an ER visit for the other one. 🤦*♂️

    My first K9 developed bloat in 2013 on today’s date. He was 12 and retired for two years. He was part of my Belgian Security Team. RIP Talon until we meet again. Never Forgotten.

    ^^^ WifeGBiv brought home a Chihuahua a while back. It parked itself under her desk and growled at me every time I walked into the room. Lasted about a week before the dog was returned to the shelter.
