Loki and Gemi were not perfect. Don't get me wrong, they were both good dogs. They were loveable and cuddly, but not without their annoying "quirks". On this day of love I thought I would share these "quirks. I truly believe that these quirks are some of the reason we love our pets!
|Gemi, Aunt C, Loki and me at the beach Sept.09|
Loki: Besides having an autoimmune disorder (which wasn't his fault so we don't hold it against him), he could be a pain in the ass. He was embarrassingly humpy. He was dominant. He marked other people's houses. He was demanding. He would sit and huff at you through his crazy teeth until he got what he wanted. He was an amazing escape artist and would use any opportunity to explore the world. He hated the groomer, probably the only place he was "nasty".
Gemini: She was a very challenging puppy. She ate the baseboards and the walls. She never got past her bad habit and jumping up and biting people she loved when they first entered the house. It hurt and left bruises. She destroyed other people's stuff. For example, once she ate Uncle Chris' hat that he left on the floor and the mouth guard of Aunt Darlene when she was baby sitting her (who she adored). She also developed anxiety that led to her fur falling out and obsessive drinking and then peeing. While Loki was dying it was her that destroyed the carpets!
(I think the living dog, Lee's quirks are outlined clearly throughout this blog!)
Do your pets have crazy quirks that make them "more" loveable?
Happy Valentine's day!
