"Stay Out Of Trouble" Insurance

How many of y’all saw the Chinese Crested come in 2nd at the Westminster in his group the other night?… What a gorgeous Crested, prancing like a pony down the line~!!
My puppers don’t prance like that… Walking them is more of -- ‘three Stooges walk’ – “Hey Mo, hey Larry” as they criss-cross back and forth underneath their harness lines… Halfway round the park I have to grab the leashes with the other hand, drop the handles and untangle the mess they make out of the leash lines… But boy, do they love to walk in the park… Any reason to go “Bye-Bye” makes 3 fairly calm puppers turn into 3 spinning, hoppin, jumpin bundles of “me next… no, me – I was first”… LOL…
I didn’t move the couches back after we took the Christmas tree down, so the puppers have taken to using that part of the house as a jungle gym, racing ‘round the coffee table, jumpin’ up onto the couches, flying off the tops of the couches onto the carpet below… Sometimes it’s worst than a zoo around here… with three kids~!!
But the worst one of all is the BooBooDog… She knows without a doubt that regardless of what she gets into or does, she has the protection of the ‘Grand Po-paw’ (Paul, my husband)… Regardless of diggin in the mud and coming into the house with four muddy paws, causing an immediate bath…
Or openin’ up the pantry so the boys can snitch a few pigs ears… Or sneaking over to my Diet Coke and taking a few stolen laps (she only likes the mix of Diet Coke and Lemon Diet Coke – can you believe it?), she’ll never get fussed at or put in jail (the kennel)…
Now if one of the ‘boys’ did the same thing, they’d be fussed at to no end, but BooBooDog knows she’s immune to ‘punishment’ of any form because she’s Paul’s dog… She makes sure that she always loves up to the Grand Po-paw either before she’s gonna get into mischief or immediately afterwards --- I swear she does this~!!
I’ve watched her do something she knows she’s not supposed to and before Paul discovers it, runs, leaps into his lap and starts lovin’ up on him to no end~!! You can’t tell me that she doesn’t buy ‘love insurance’ to keep herself out of trouble… LOL… So much for Paul being one of those ‘tough, rouge cops without a heart,’ huh?…
YogiBear got ‘jailed’ the other night for chasing Precious down the hallway (a new not-nice behavior) --- 10 minutes in the kennel OMG ALONE… Major time-out for them – separating them is a major punishment around here… BooBooDog immediately jumped up on Paul, crawled up underneath his chin and you couldn’t get a toothpick between the two of them…
She knew something was up, didn’t know if she was in trouble or not, but she wanted to make sure that she didn’t share in the ‘jail time’… LOL…
After she determined that it was only YogiBear, she had to jump down and go do her ‘you’re in jail and I’m not’ prance back and forth in front of the kennel… She kept coming back to Paul and being reassured that she was not in trouble… Paul is such a pushover for dogs, cats and children~!!…
