Dog Lies! (sometimes)
We’ve all read about dogs in books and seen them in movies. They chew slippers and fetch newspapers and even do stuff like chase squirrels and then jump up trees trying to get at them. But, anyone who’s ever owned a dog knows that most of the time, those are just stereo-types. Or “dog lies”. Dogs normally just chew toys and clothing and the occasional shoe. Never a slipper. Well, not usually anyway. They are normally sleeping through the paper delivery. If there is one. Lately, people just read it online or ignore it completely and just text, Facebook, or Tweet to their buddies.
Dogs sometimes just don’t see squirrels, or if they do, chase them and lose their trail. Sometimes dogs can find them all the way to a tree, and when they do, they jump stubbornly at the trunk, barking like their tail is on fire. But usually, they just lose the critters halfway through the chase.
Dog Lies are normally harmless, but I find them 10% annoying, 20% confusing, 10% plain stupid, and 60% amusing.
Today, I was out with the dogs, and Molly went running after a person who was walking up the road. I tore after her. I chased all the way up road, and she dashed into the llama pen. Well, those llamas can, and would, very easily squash her to death. I was very nervous, but I herded her away from the llamas and out of the pen. Molly then charged into the Office, and caused a big ruckus. I ran in there, grabbed her, and then carried 7 pounds of squirming puppy cuteness down the road and back in the house. Silly Molly!
Sorry about this, but I can’t resist!

I think the dogs find it funny when the family does yard work, mainly mowing. Mum was on the mower all day a few days ago, and boy oh boy, I think the dogs had a good laugh about it then.
Sorry I haven’t been on in a while. A long while.
Anyway, the doggies are enjoying the nice weather, and Molly just LOVES lying in the grass, soaking it all in!
Don’t you hate it when you smell something bad, but you don’t know where it is?
You notice that your brother has old socks on the floor, and you think maybe they’re his?
Or maybe it’s that rotten sandwich that’s lying on the floor.
You think to yourself, if I don’t find that smell soon, I’m gonna move to Baltimore!
Me and Dad were just playing some Table-Top Ping-Pong. I hit the ball too hard, and Dad said it went under the washer. Nic, (My sister), Mum, Dad, and I spent like, ten minutes searching for the little white ball. I was saying something to Nic, so she said,(Jokingly, of course.) “Find the ball, Emma!”
“You find the ball, Nic!”
She stalked into the living room and abruptly started laughing. Soon Mum joined her. I walked up to see what was so funny. Turns out, Molly had the ball all along. Thanks, Molly, for giving us all lots of laughter. 🙂
Molly likes to hide. Under the beds, beneath the ramp and the table, by the bushes, etc. And if Beulah tries hard, she can find her. It’s pretty cute to watch a puppy and a dog play hide-and-go-seek just like real people.
It’s even cuter to watch Beulah and Molly laying by the fire together.
Seeing the two curled up, totally zonked out, in front of a cracking fire is possibly one of the world’s only truly blissful moments.
Oh, happy day! We got a new puppy, and boy, oh, boy, is Beulah happy! They are constantly playing together, and Beulah is such a good “big sister”. The new puppy’s name is Molly, and she is such a sweet little thing! Unbearably cute, too. Molly is a mixed breed. Her mom is half Doxie, half Lab, and her dad is half Poodle, half Bichon Frise. It’s so funny to watch a rough Lab swinging a 5 pound ball of fluff from a chew toy in middle of the living room. It is a bright spot in every day for me.
