Dog’s Simplicities, Husband’s Intricacies

 

We have two great dogs; one a mix of Catahoula Leopard and Rhodesian Ridgeback, the other a German Shepherd.  The Shepard adopted me about five years ago, he is my baby. But no matter how much I love him though, he does have some irritating particulars about him. Somewhat like my husband, to a degree. The dog is always underfoot and constantly follows me around the house. I mean there is only so much space to walk down the tiny hallway to our small bathroom, me and the 115 pound dog, both, just cannot fit. But, this last week, with my husband home for the holidays, I got to thinking about the dog and my husband in a different way. I started seeing the little things the dog and the husband do that bug me as less of an irritation and more of a sweetness of their personalities.

So here is my dog to husband conversion, enjoy!

Dog says…

“Me too, Boss.”

Husband says…

“I know you are in charge, pretty lady, but can I come too?”

 

Dog says…

“Pet me”  

Husband says…

“Touch me so I know you know I’m here. Touch means love to me.”

 

Dog says…

“Wait, wait, where ya going? Oooh, I’ll go too best buddy!”       

  Husband says…

“I just want to be with you. Don’t’ you want to be with me?”

 

Dog says…

“Yep, I am going to sit here, riiiight on your foot.”        

Husband says…

“Oh you smell good and I like it when you fall on me. I like touching you, you feel nice.”See ‘Pet Me’ answer.

 

 Dog says…

“Oh! We’re going on a walk!! Yessss!

 Wait, no—no, not the leash! I hate the leash!”     

Husband says…

“I want to go with you but don’t rope me in, yank me around, and lead me. Let’s be in this together, I feel better when we are side by side.”

 

Dog says…

“Feed me twice a day or I’ll drink too

much and barf on your floor.”  

  Husband says…

  “Take care of me.”

 

Dog says…

“Let me bark are everyone who walks by our house.”    

Husband says…

  “I’ll take care of you.”

 

Dog says…

“I know you like cats, but they scare me.”      

Husband says…

“Just because something makes sense to you or makes you happy, please don’t assume I feel the same way.”

 

Dog says…

“I love a good butt sniff,

especially after rooting up old poo in the yard.”   

  Husband says…

“Just because something makes sense to me or makes me happy, I won’t assume you feel the same way.”

 

Dog says…

“Car ride to the beach? I’m sorry if I barf in the car again.

I really love the beach though.”      

Husband says…

“I may complain or put up a fight, but once we get through the hard parts we’re going to have so much fun!”

Happy New Year and New You! Here’s to 2017!!!

Lots of love, 

Christina, Nathaniel, Buddy the Shepherd and Harley the Catahoula/Ridgeback
