Sorry I have been MIA around here. I have been dog/cat/bird/house-sitting for my aunt this past week, and things have been kind of crazy at work, too. The picture I posted yesterday is of Sadie and the dog we’re watching, Harlie, laying on the couch together. They aren’t overly fond of each other, which is why they are on complete opposite ends of the couch haha. It’s not that they dislike each other, it’s just that Sadie is a brat and doesn’t want me paying attention to other dogs. She gave me quite the look when I told Harlie she could share her couch haha. And it’s not even HER couch to begin with. Brat. All in all, the dogs basically just co-exist. Although with both of their names ending in “-ie”, it is rather difficult trying to talk to one without the other one coming over instead. So it has been an interesting week. And I am more convinced than ever that Sadie would never let me get another dog. She is VERY protective of me. And while I don’t think she’d ever attack another dog, she certainly stands her ground and has no problem being Alpha Dog.
Oh, I also wanted to ask about something Sadie seems to always do…Ever since I got her, she would try to “hide” her food, whether it be her actual food or just a bone (if she doesn’t automatically inhale it). She even tries to hide other things as well…my things. I used to put a towel under her food and water. I learned quickly that was a bad idea, as she used the towel to hide the bowls, which meant food and water everywhere haha. The funny thing is, even if there isn’t a towel, blanket, rug, or something to cover the food, she still does the burying gesture with her nose. Like she is covering it with a cloak of invisibility or something hahaha. Silly dog. Do your dogs do this too?
I guess this is better than the dog I had growing up, who would hide her milkbones in the cat’s litter box. Seriously. She’d come back with a white nose, proud of herself and thinking we didn’t know where she hid her treat. Oh, she also dug a hole in the carpet to hide something once. Another fun day!
