Sickness, Puppies, and Life

Sorry I haven’t blogged lately, I have been sick with a chest cold.  Lovely stuff, to be sure.  I have been watching the puppies roam about the house inspecting things.  They seem to do this at the change of every season.  I don’t know if the younger ones picked it up from my older dog, or if it is something that dogs just tend to do.  Although, I must say, I have never noticed it in any of the dogs we had grrowing up.  Hagrid, and now Abby and Tia, will roam about the house sniffing every corner, and do the same in the yard for about three or four days every time the season changes.  It is like they are taking an inventory or something.  It is rather comforting though, to have the notion that my older dog loves me so much that he makes sure I am safe.  He has complete faith in me.  I wonder sometimes if that is what it is going to feel like to have a child.  Hagrid is completely dependant on me, even to the point of his happiness.  If I am away from him for any length of time, he lays down and pines for me.  I don’t think this is very healthy, but considering his background of abuse, it might be the only survival for him.  Here lately, Abby has had a fetish for my toes.  I think I am getting over dogs licking my toes just simply because she does it like seventeen million times a day.  If I am wearing socks or shoes or slippers, she tries to go through them to get to my toes.   She is really detirmined.

So YOU gave me this stupid chest cold!! Thanks alot! *sticks out tongue*

As far as the dogs goes...you know Kujo doesn't seem to care one way or the other if I go. But DaKota Roze does. She get's all sad and will start whining for her "mama"

How could I have given you a chest cold from 400 miles away????? Hagrid seems to be depressed here lately, but I think it is just all the new puppies....

Did Not Myjic!!!!! :p
Hagrid seems to be getting better, especially now that we spend a little bit of time together and it is just the two of us. He still growls at the newest puppy, but he will eventually get over that.
As for flip flps Yvette, I go around bare footed most of the time, so Abby is usually following me licking my feet. It used to drive me nuts, but now it is more like, "Oh. Hi, Abby." I still dont care much for it, but oh well.
