Zoe and I are the only females in the house, as the rest of pets, including The Boss, are males. So it was nice to hear that someone else is in my same testosterone-filled boat, regular Pet People reader, Stacey. Her husband, Bernie, has read it too, she says, but he seems to think my husband is getting the short end of the stick around here. Boo hoo, I feel his pain, but I assure you, The Boss's pain isn't anywhere near what I have to put up with!I told her Bernie will just have to post himself and stick up for the poor, put-upon pet daddies and husbands of the world.:)
Back to Stacey. She sent me a picture of her "Daddy's Girl," Lucy and said the following: "This is my youngest, Lucy, on the back of the couch watching her Daddy out the window. She loves to lie on the back of the couch and see the world. Many evenings I come home from work and can see her face there in the window. You can see the sway in the back of the couch from it being her favorite place to be. It's funny that she is so comfortable on the couch, because when she came to us from her foster home, getting on the furniture was a new experience. Her foster mom didn't allow that, so I actually had to teach her it was okay to be on the couch. Now, she gives you that sad face if someone is sitting in HER spot.
"She and I are the only women in a house full of men (1 husband, 3 male cats, and 1 male dog), so we have our work cut out for us. She has been great for my oldest dog, Reb. He's a geezer and she's still a pup in most ways, so she gives him a run for his money. She literally runs laps around him in the yard, which is a hoot to watch. He is more active with her around, which is good for both of them. I'm afraid she's turning into a Daddy's girl though."
I don't get the the Daddy's Girl thing. With Zoe, I feed her, brush her, walk her, give her treats and otherwise do everything for her. She's Daddy's favorite and he takes her for a ride every week when he takes off the garbage. But she loves him best. Hmmmmm. I knew something wasn't quite right with that dog!
