December 1st

Posted: December 1, 2015 in Animals, blog, dogs, funny, ramblings, Uncategorized

It was a quiet evening, this December 1st. Little L was playing in her bubble bath, I was sitting on the bed, using my tablet. Hubby had just finished his dinner and went back out to the garage. Oldest was doing what Oldest does best…on the computer. My mom went in to let the dog in to eat. All of a sudden there was a ton of noise and lots of stomping coming from the kitchen. At first I was thought the dog was playing, but then I heard my mom say, “Something’s wrong, he’s dying!” I jumped up, threw my tablet on the bed and took off through the house yelling for Oldest to yell for her dad. When I rounded the corner, Apollo was standing in the middle of the kitchen head down. He looked up at me sideways and started trying to walk. But he was stomping. All four feet, stomping and legs going everywhere. He was trying to eat his dinner but he couldn’t stand. Oldest came back in and she headed to the bath to take care of L, who was crying. Hubby finally made it in and I told him what I saw, and he grabbed the flashlight and went out back. He didn’t know if someone had thrown something over the wall to make him sick or worse. Apollo wobbled back to his bowl and started to eat. I stayed and watched and he was standing with no problem, eating normally. He finished, turned around and walked through the kitchen like nothing happened. I told my mom and hubby that I think his feet were asleep. I hadn’t heard him for awhile and usually he wants in at dinner time. He must have fallen asleep and when mom called for him, he wasn’t fully “awake”.

Silly dog! πŸ™‚

Dog Gone

Well not really…

We often tell our dog that one of these days we are going to let him out the front door and not go after him. We do this because he is always sticking his nose out the front door when someone is going in or out. he often stands and blocks the whole door and trying to move a 125 pound german shepherd is not an easy task. He has gotten out before. One time he was on the street behind us totally lost by the time we caught up to him. Another time, he was out in the front yard by the garage and when my hubby opened the front door, he barreled in. It was over 100 degrees that day.

So today, hubby came in and Apollo was hovering around the door. Last night we had some visitors. Coyotes were in the yard. There were foot prints everywhere and they had dragged up some garbage into the yard and ate what they wanted and left the rest for us to clean up. Apollo then wanted to go out back. Kind of strange since “daddy” was inside, but ok. I went to the back door and let him out and turned to put the load of laundry in the dryer. I heard hubby go out and I then heard him saying “Apollo.” Crap, he went through the back door to the garage again and out the front. He was gone, took off down the road. Hubby jumped in the truck and caught up to him in the next subdivision over almost to the mountain side. He was tracking the coyotes. Hubby said if he had gone any farther he would have lost him.

He was happy to be home and came right in the front door and plopped down by the air vent. He panted for about an hour afterwards and went outside a couple of times before he got calmed down. Silly ass dog. Good thing we don’t mean what we say sometimes. πŸ™‚

Puppy Kisses

Little L loves to give out kisses. She will run from daddy to me, to grandma to sissy, kissing each of us oh so sweetly on the cheek.

puppy kissesLittle L also loves to pretend she is a puppy. She will stick her tongue out and start making panting noises. Yesterday, she crawled up onto my lap, stuck out her tongue and took my hand and petted herself on her head with it. “Oh you are such a good puppy!” I said. She loves it when I do this. I then said, “Are you going to give me some puppy kisses?” She was quite ready to do so. I bent closer to her so she could lick my cheek. Nope, she didn’t want my cheek. She wanted my lips. One lick straight up. “Awww, you are a good puppy.” She licked me again. “OK, that’s enough, puppy.” I told her. Not for her. She licked me all over my chin and lips. It was rather funny. Here I am, trying to get her to stop and she is not giving up at all. I started yelling out help, while laughing so hard. By the time she was done, I was covered in “puppy drool.” I asked her if she was a bull dog, it was that bad. πŸ™‚
