As things have been getting somewhat, ahem, heavy, around here, I thought that I would join in the showing and telling to shake things up a bit. (See who else is shaking things up at the head of the class here.)
So for your reading and viewing pleasure, I give you, my dog, Miss Famous (the little black mutt), and her best friend, S (the Husky).
Miss Famous and S play together, usually in our yard, because they will generally escape from S’s yard if they are together, though Sdoes not get out of her own yard if she is alone. Miss Famous tends to have a bad influence on other dogs this way. She used to play with another dog, Blackberry, and the same thing happened there, too. Blackberry was fine by herself in her yard, but put Miss Famous in there with her, and all of a sudden, you’ve got two little black dogs on the loose in the neighborhood. Needless to say, my neighbors know who I am, and who my dog is. Good thing she’s cute (and friendly).
The pictures here were taken on a day that S kept getting out, and it turned out that this sweet, sweet dog (who I always thought was a little dumb to tell you the truth) was opening the latch on the gates by herself with her nose (I saw her do it). So, not so dumb after all, I guess.
Well, enough people have saved my dog enough times, so I just kept her in my house (which was an adventure) until her owner came home. We have now worked out a solution and she can no longer open the gates, much to her chagrin, I’m sure. I’m just happy that it’s not always my dog who’s the neighborhood troublemaker.
Oh, yeah. And even though that Husky is like three times her size, Miss Famous is TOTALLY the boss. I’ve seen her take treats right out of S’s mouth. Literally. And S loves her anyway. She’s a mess and a half, that one. And by that I mean both of them.
