meet the Bully Princess ... aka Tori ... aka D.O.G.
This week's theme over at I *heart* Faces is Pets and that got me to thinking about my brindle bully girl.
We've had a handful of pets through our married years. And, of course, I had plenty growing up as well. Most of them dogs (with the occasional cat, fish, or bird thrown in). And every one of them has been special to me/us.
But I don't think I've ever had a pet as truly affectionate as this wild and woolly canine. This girl is a true yin & yang kinda dog. She can be the most tightly wound ball of energy you've ever encountered (especially in the 30 minutes prior to feeding time), but she's also the most ridiculous couch potato to settle onto the cushions.
I think she sleeps 20+ hours a day. But she makes her waking moments count - patrolling her yard for bunnies and birds, making sure the family is safe and sound and where she thinks we ought to be (read: on the couch or floor scratching her tail, preferably), and scrounging for any crumbs that might have escaped our notice.
It's a busy life, I s'pose. But she takes it (mostly) in stride.
She's our bully princess. And we love her dearly.
Now ... in true Tori fashion ... why don't you waddle on over to and see all of the other fabulous furry faces!
