Try as I may, I just can’t handle my licker!
Do any of you have this problem?
This is mine and my dad’s chair. I keep it warm and snuggly during the day for him, and we sometimes share it in the evenings (mostly when he is having snacks!)
We have this special pillow our friend, Jill, made for us one Christmas. It is perfect for Dad and me. Dad can be a little “grinchy” at Christmas time (he admits it himself!), and I am like his very friendly companion, Max who likes to lick him to make him happy.
Sometimes people get annoyed with my licking…
Like my brother when I lick his feet while he is sitting at his desk,
or my Dad when I try to give him licks right on the lips after a long walk and taste testing of “treasures” along the way!
Or like sweet babies that lay on the floor on my spot under the Christmas tree,
Or like the mailman who takes some time to sit on the porch with me to let me know how nice people can be…
And just last evening, Dad had a friend stop by, and I jumped right up on him and gave him a big slurpy lick!
Really – just about anyone who comes to visit gets a lick or two or three or five hundred.
Mom says it is hard to believe that just four short months ago, when I first got adopted and moved in here, I would have cowered away from anyone with my tail between my legs and the hair up on my back. Seems like ancient history to me really. I’ve come to learn there are lots and lots of kind, loving people in the world, and it is WONDERFUL!
Mom understands and knows these licks are usually just “doggie kisses.” Right?!?
BUT….. (there’s always a but – eh?)
Remember the watercolor forsythia card she made a few weeks ago?
Well, she had it on the floor as she was going to try scanning it, and well….
It WAS on the FLOOR!
Watercolor paint does not taste very good. Just sayin’.
It does kind of make a beautiful abstract – whadayathink???
Sorry! I just can’t handle my licker!
Slurpy, Sloppy Doggie Kisses,
