It's Good To Be Loved
The kids took this picture today while I was out for a walk. They are always telling me how Nikki stands at the window for the entire time I am gone. Lucky for her I was only on walk today so that she only had to wait 45 minutes for me to get back home. I usually walk down to the end of the side road to the stop sign and back. The time that she can see me on the way back is about 7 minutes, during this time she run back and forth to the door barking. If I am gone for a few hours she still stands and waits. When we are all gone she has to stay in the kennel so I don't know what she does then.
She does other possessive things too. If we are out walking her around the yard she will only walk if I am holding her leash. If she is sitting on another persons lap and I come and sit down, she gets up and comes over to my lap. During dinner she sits at my leg and begs. If someone else has a tidbit for her she will run over to get it and run back to my spot. Dad always says that I am her alpha dog. It is good to be loved even if it is by the dog.
