What can I say about loyalty except …


Loyal. Honest, usually. Faithful, for the most part. Ours … absolutely!

    1. Zoo, even when the furry kids drive me nuts (a daily occurence), I wind up smiling and laughing amid my sputtering profanities.

  1. I think you’re both loyal to each other. Just look at the love in those eyes. There’s even a change in Dukes’ eyes. There’s a real look of love there.

    1. He broke into the bedroom this morning. To give him credit, he looked around and backed out. I think he thought maybe he’d crossed that line. I don’t want him to know how fragile our doors really are! It could be the end of all hope at home.

      They are loving. Sometimes a bit psycho, too!

    2. Yeah, sure, Leslie!! But there’s also a Norman Bates look in those eyes. He’s such a funny whirling dervish of frenzied activity. He may live to see tomorrow.

        1. He IS getting better … with glitches. If I catch him when I can see “intent” in his eyes, I look at him and I say “Don’t do it, Duke. Not worth it. Don’t DO it.” Usually, he doesn’t do it. Usually.

        2. Leslie, Duke is a Jekyl-Hyde kid. I was thinking about that around 11:30 pm last nigtht as he lay quietly, stretched out between Marilyn and me on the love seat. I was patting and stroking him softly. I was even lifting his paws up and down. A serene moment.

            1. I’m sure Duke barks in warning too … but I have not yet picked up all the nuances of this barking. He may be barking in more than one language. Perhaps … Chinese or Korean plus good old American street barking.

            1. Now that Duke knows he isn’t allowed to stand in front of us while we eat and bark furiously, he lies there and moans. When that doesn’t work, he tries a few barks. Garry looks at him and Duke goes and lies down in the crate. But he will take food — LAST in line and wait while the other two get theirs — and NOT take off my fingers. This is significant improvement. Thank you Dusty!

                1. I have explained that to him, but he doesn’t seem to understand that his dinner is the one in the bowl on the floor and not generally served on a table. With a fork. But I’m sure he’ll get it. I think he believe ALL mealtimes are for him. And anytime in between that someone steps into the kitchen … or even LOOKS at the kitchen.

  2. I have never ever had a dog. I know they are faithful and everything that goes with it, but when you have never had the experience of having your own dog, you have missed it all. Cats: I, me and myself and the others afterwards, but they know where to cuddle and sleep, although usually the places are where you want to sleep.


    1. When Garry and I got together, he had two cats and I had one. I had many dogs from childhood on, but not while living in an apartment. Garry had a couple of dogs too … but had given up trying to balance his career and dogs. So, we had cats and we had GREAT cats. Our last cat – Big Guy, a golden Somali – was the best cat … and after that, the last cat. There was no way we could ever get a cat as amazing as Big Guy. He was a cat and a half, at least.

  3. Dogs are so loyal, even to death. It breaks my heart when I see the mistreatment of pets, dogs who remain out of loyalty to a creep. It’s so gratifying to see a dog with an owner that loves them. back and cares making them a part of the family.
