    Kids do the same thing, except they can have an incessant whine or pout….
    Love that shot of W.

      So true! I tried telling her to go clean her room, but…

    I marvel at Wilma’s patience in waiting for her breakfast while Lady makes the dark stink drink. Good girl.

      Patience is one of her many virtues.

    Awww Wilma… you forgot to schedule in lots of pats, rubs, and chin scratches while lady drinks her stink drink!!!!

    • Petrea - July 19, 2017 @ 10:00

      She did, at that! I’ll go remind her right now!

    You are much more patient than I am, Wilma!

    • Petrea - July 19, 2017 @ 14:17

      Dogs don’t have much choice. But she is very good about it.

    What an adorable snout!

    • Petrea - July 19, 2017 @ 15:25

      You know I love every little thing about her.

    Do you know what name Wilma has given you?

    • Petrea - July 20, 2017 @ 16:02

      She calls us “Lady and Man.” But I sometimes wonder if she’s just being polite, hiding deeper, more dogly names, like “Grph and Thall.”

    Hahaha I loved this. Great pacing and energy, and no doubt entirely true!

    • Petrea - July 20, 2017 @ 16:08

      Thanks! It certainly is true, every day.

    This is delightful! You really captured her voice and persona! And you could have been writing about Thunder, too–I’m sure this is how she views life with me.

    • Petrea - July 22, 2017 @ 20:52

      If we weren’t the alpha dogs, we’d be entertaining them 24 hours a day.

    Those eyes !! I’ll bet the walk waiting feels like forever for her …

    • Petrea - August 1, 2017 @ 16:19

      She is a good and patient girl.
