Hi there and a big welcome to my first Dog Blog.
I live with the BOSS and I decided to start this blog to give you humans my take on life…..a dog’s eye view so to speak….
I know I am lucky because the Boss ‘gets me.’…too well sometimes but you humans can, without realising or meaning to, really mess with our heads.
Take LOVE for example….. Well I love a long walk and I love my food and I love sleeping on my back but I know the Boss won’t let me get all my own way…believe me I’ve tried. We have rules in our pack and I have learnt them. I would love to sleep curled up beside the Boss every night and I would love to get fed whatever and whenever I want and wade through the mud to find tennis balls but it doesn’t happen and do you know what…. I love it when I am not allowed to do everything I want because that’s just plane scary. I need to know The Boss IS the Boss in our pack.
So I’m suggesting to you humans that of course it’s ok to love us and we will love you back but don’t make it all about love we need to feel safe and secure as well. It’s a scary world out there if you let us do everything we want. So give us some guidance and rules on how to behave. We will always love you but we need MORE!
The other day I was coming home from a great long run in the park …did I tell you I used to chase and hunt for a living…well that’s another story..anyway the Boss meets this human with her pack of Snauzers. Gran, Mum and the youngster of 4 months. The Human bent down to give me a treat and quick as a flash the kid moved in, growled at me and snaffled the treat! The Mum and Gran ignored the Kid’s bad manners and the Human thought it was funny!! I looked at the Boss and I could see she agreed with me that that Kid is going to get into serious trouble if it doesn’t learn some manners quickly.
So love is great and important but we all need a Boss as well.
…..til next time
