I have these two wonderful dogs. I really do not know how I ended up with such mellow, laid back animals. The kids can climb all over them and pull their ears or tails. The dogs just put up with anything. They are both inside dogs. When they come inside they just lounge around the house. They must sleep about 18 hours a day. But for those few hours they are awake, they are always looking for an adventure. The other morning I went to the back door to let them back in and this is what I saw.
Isn't that pathetic? Come on!! Could he have gotten anymore mud on him? Really!! And do you see the blood? What in the world was he doing? "Can I come in? Come on Mom, let me inside!! I am c-c-c-cold!" He can give you those looks. This is the most expressive dog I have ever known. He is very emotional too. Then you see Bear in the background he looks like he is saying, "He did it, he made me run in the mud, I didn't want to, it was all him!!" Yeah, here is Brodi's sidekick, Bear. He didn't dare press his nose against the glass wanting to come in. He didn't even come up on the porch. He knew he was a mess! And that is a yellow lab not a chocolate lab. It looks like he just was dipped in the mud. I came to the conclusion they were coon hunting! Brodi got pretty beat up. He is a sissy dog and I do not know why he bothers to pick fights. He always looses!!
Here Brodi is shivering. Not because he was cold. He is just a sissy. I think that morning it was about 65 degrees outside. He really wants you to feel bad for him and then let him inside the house. And for all you who are concerned about his cuts, he is on pain pills and some antibiotics! When will he learn to leave those wild racoons alone?
