My Dog Is Not Talking To Me
The title of this piece may make it appear as though I have some Dr. Dolittle type qualities. If you believed that to be the case, I apologize for my deception. My dog, like almost every other domesticated pet, "talks" to me in a number of different ways. It's a wag of the tail when I tell her she has done something good, or a lick of the face when I say, "Give me a kiss" (that is her little party piece). There is none of that good stuff coming my way today.
I won't go into detail as to how it all happened, but little missy decided to pounce on a scorching hot hot dog that fell on the floor last night, wolfing it down in a single bite. Needless to say, it did not sit well with her, and I had to spend the next half hour or so cleaning up her regurgitated hot dog deposits.
When I got up this morning, I noticed that she did not smell so good after her evening adventures. That means a bath and a good brush, both of which she hates with a passion. She will now not look me in the eye, and any requests for kisses are summarily ignored. She is now pretending that she is asleep, which she never is at this time of the day. She is starting to edge a little closer on the couch, though, and one paw is now touching my leg. I am also catching the occasional little sideways glance when she thinks I'm not looking. I believe she might be ready to forgive and forget, especially since ear rubs are here favorite thing and she is not getting any right now.
