What I put up with on a daily basis

Watch this and you'll get some idea of what I put up with every day, living with the world's most ridiculous dog.

He clearly wants something. I know what it is, because I've lived with him for 9 1/2 years, but see if you can figure it out.

He's communicating with his eyes, and as you'll see at one point, his snout.

The scene: I am on the couch, trying to read, as he sits at my feet and stares, and shifts, and snorts. I know from experience that if I ignore him, he'll woof deep in his throat, tiny restrained woofs that blow out his cheeks. Those will turn into sharp barks that show me how disgusted he is by my lethargy to act now right now I've been patient enough, woman, and I lack opposable thumbs we've been over this!



Did you figure out what was bugging him?

I honestly think, seriously believe, that my dog has OCD.

I know exactly what's wrong him because I've sat in that exact spot and he's given me the same look. "Move the blanket into the RIGHT position AND the pillow". The wiener.

He wants to hop up. Clear as day!

Please note: I typed the earlier response _before_ you said 'What's the problem Buddy?'

Nailed it.

kc, he wants to hop up, but that's not the problem. Yutha nailed it.

Yes kc, it's never that simple with The Budster.

The dog has been trying to train you for 9.5 years. Poor dear is losing patience. Completely understandable.

PS: I wanna see that ticking clock. Is it old?

A Novel Woman said...

Ticking clock? You mean the ceiling fan?

Deborah said...

Too cute. So expressive, that boy. :)

Looks like your training is almost complete--just need to work on your response time!

And they say you can't teach a human new tricks...looks to me like Buddy's got that down pat! ;)

Debby said...

Ceiling fan? Oh. My disappointment is big. I had the idea that you had a wonderful old clock with a story.

A Novel Woman said...

Well, my father-in-law has a wonderful old clock, but I don't know the story. Not sure if it's from his side of the family, or my mother-in-law's. Her family was from Newfoundland, ship's captains and crew from way back.

You're sitting there reading this? You need to take pictures, ask questions and do a post. Out of that chair, sistah!
