Many thanks to our friends at 2 Brown Dawgs blog for creating This ‘N That Thursday.
I wanted to share an example of just HOW good my boy Sampson is.
Last night Hubby went outside to ‘button up the jeep.’ In good weather he likes to take the top and doors off, but has to make sure everything goes back on at night. Sampson loves to be outside with his daddy, he sits or lies in the driveway and basically watches the world go by.
Sometimes friendly people and dogs walk by and Sampson and Daddy will step out for a visit. Most nights Daddy ends this ritual with a quick walk up and down the street.
As soon as they stepped outside, I realized that Sampson did not have his ID collar on. (We all know how I feel about that.) I left Delilah in the kitchen after I’d made sure there was nothing edible within her reach.
As I opened the door, Sampson looked up at me from his spot down the driveway and I said, “Hey Big Boy, you need to have your collar on.”
I held up the collar as I spoke and he ran right up to me and waited while I secured it around his neck.
That’s how damn good and damn smart Sampson is.
I’m afraid he has ruined me for any future dogs.
Remember that post from a couple of weeks back, the one where Delilah’s head went through the screen after a cat?
In yesterday’s post I mentioned how Sampson and Delilah were outside on Tuesday when I got home from work. You may recall that Delilah was on the balcony. Hubby, Sampson and I went inside the house and were greeted by Delilah.
She came in through the ripped screen. The kicker was that Hubby had stopped at Home Depot on his way home, but forgot to get the screen material.
The other thing I wanted to share about Delilah is this. Last night I was sitting on my bed working on today’s post.
I was eating one of my (and the dogs) favorite snacks – string cheese, while Sampson laid on the bed and Delilah sat on the floor both staring intently at me.
After I finished my snack, I stood up and slid my flip-flops (which had been on the floor next to the bed) on and almost hurled. The left one was covered in drool.
Do your dogs have any funny quirks you’d like to share? Sound off in the comments.
