The Traitor speaks

As mentioned on Monday, I have come to my parents (aka Grammie and the Big Guy who is 6'3 ish) for a few days. They are the proud servants to 2 Labradors. Tendra, the black lab is almost 5 and they have had her since she was a puppy. [Her name is the last 3 letters of my name and my sister's name. My parents lack creativity and named the dog after us]. Barley, the chocolate lab, is 5.5 and was rescued last year.

I have not been to visit my parents for over a year and a half [They have come to see me, so I have seen them]. I have met Tendra many times, but only met Barley once, last fall when he came to my house for the weekend. As soon as I arrived, Barley decided I am the coolest person on the planet and he wants to be with me all the time. The pictures from yesterday were from the first few hours I was in the house. The Bar Man wouldn't stay off me. Barley has also decided he needs to sleep with me (which is funny as he doesn't sleep with my parents). Barley is pretty much glued to me. I do get some breaks when he needs love from my parents or a favourite family friend who comes for a visit. Tendra, who also loves me, did sleep with me one the first night. She is a little more independent. I didn't mean to be such a traitor, but the dogs decided they needed to maximize their time with their "long lost sister"!

I am hoping my parents will come and visit this fall with their two dogs, because I think the 4 of them would be lots of fun!

Barley with his blanket. Bar carries this with him and
he will suck it when he wants to relax. Never knew a dog
with a blanket before!

  3. Well our Angel/Devil Sammer use to suck a duck puppet every night before he went to bed, when he went to the bridge mom put it upstairs to keep cos she couldn't bear to part with it. Those labs are beautiful..bless your parents hearts for giving them such a good home. Mom thinks the reason they love you so much is cos they know your heart so why wouldn't they!!!

  10. Okay, okay, we'll excuse you THIS time. Dogs are great judges of character...so what does that tell you about yourself. Use the photos in future references...BOL!

    Just hope Lee and Phod are as understanding as we are.

  17. Dogs are great judges of character, so Barley could probably sense that you're pretty awesome. I'm sure Phod and Lee weren't too impressed, but it's not all the time you get to sleep with your parents' dogs!

  18. Barley is a smart pup. Who wouldn't love Hailey and Phod's momma!
