The Nosey Neighbor...


This is for the dog lovers... I know that many of you are cat lovers but believe me get a shih tzu and you have the best of both worlds.

Mac is the quintessential lap dog, he's the spoiled little dog of the Emperor of China and still has all the royal pampering flowing though his very being. He follows me everywhere and will find a comfy spot as close to me as he can and lay there for however long I am still and just be with me. I love it when I am lying in bed watching tv or reading and jumps up, lays by my feet, gets into just the right spot and then sighs heavily. Cat's don't sigh!!! I never miss it and I always appreciate that sigh, it's like he's saying ahhh this is the life.

When we are gone the dogs are left in the kitchen with their fluffy bed and a little treat before we leave. We have very tall windows in there that go almost right to the floor, maybe a foot off the floor. Just the right height for him to rest his chin on the window sill and watch the world go by. Of course if someone walks their dog by the house or there's a cat in the yard Maccie boy will let them know he's in there and it's his territory. He also has a fave spot in the back yard, in the very corner of the yard where the fence is a little bare (there are some kind of weeds growing all over the rest of the fence) he can sit there and spy on the neighbors. He LOVES this spot, as soon as he sees one of their kids out there or one of their dogs he's off!!! He can sit there for a loooong time just waiting for something to happen . Now, should their spaniel come out... then all hell breaks loose.. for some reason Moo Moo is the one dog on the planet that Mac cannot get along with. They sound like two BIG DOGS in a fighting ring all the growling and knargling (made up word) that goes on.. that's when I have to intervene and bring nosey neighbor back into the house to calm down. He will then jump up on the ottoman so he can look out of the french doors, he would hate to miss anything. If he's not settled with me.... that's where he'll be. I guess if he could talk we could find out all sorts of things about the people around us, there's not a lot he doesn't see!!!!!!

Hey, thanks for stopping by my place and dropping a few lines :)
I love dogs, and that sigh you mentioned, I know exactly what you mean, currently without a dog, but have had 2 as I was growing up and still look back at the memories with fondness.
