When she’s relaxed…her ear flops around on its own.
When she’s tense…she yawns.
When she’s irritated…she moans.
When she’s tired…she still gets up and follows me to my destination.
When she gets a new toy…she tears it to shreds.
When she wants inside…she hits the sliding door with one paw (that’s her knock).
When she’s out of control…I laugh the hardest I’ve ever laughed in my life.
She is a thousand things I’m not and I am a thousand things she’s not, but we are connected. She used to come check on me while I was in the shower. She would pace back and forth until I was done. I realized maybe she wasn’t checking on me…maybe she missed me while I was not by her side. I did a little experiment one day. I decided to sing to her while I showered and see if that helped. It did. Being as I can’t sing…it’s quite hysterical to witness (ask my kids)! Seriously though…she needs to hear me or be beside me in order to be calm & content. I have her pretty well figured out.
That’s when you know it’s real..a real bond-the kind that can never be broken. The kind of bond that lives inside the heart and is protected by layers upon layers of unity only the two of us can understand.
This photo just made my head spin. I think this dog of mine is the most brilliantly designed creature on the planet. Her body is so incredibly lean and strong. Her posture and demeanor are elegant and beautiful.
Happy 2nd Birthday Zelda Bell…you are forever my grrrrrrrrrrl!
Zelda went to the river for the first time a couple weeks ago. She was a little stinker. She kept running off to find somebody to play with. Colton had to use his speedy skills to catch her each time she ran off. We ended up having to tie her up next to the water. She loved the water.
Here’s the little stinker at the river after she got herself tied up. The look on her face comes from me laughing at her for getting herself into trouble-I think she thinks I’m being mean & I also think she’s saying…
“How could you let this happen to your grrrrrrrrrrrl?”
Her mug shot for being such a stinker! She’s so serious sometimes. I love these shots because you can see her beautiful blue/gray coloring. The blue in the water and sky compliment her coat utterly well.
“I really want to be over there. Maybe if I stare long enough in that direction I’ll will it to happen.”
Do you have a dog? Does he/she melt your heart? Tell me about it…I love hearing about the special bonds between pets and their owners!
