My friend Sumner came over and took these pictures. They are very appropriate because this is the first thing you see when you walk in my door… a dog nose. Freckles will jump on you and lick you all over and if you have any food with you FORGET about it. If you didn’t know how much we love and care for Freckles you would think we starved him of attention and food. Neither is true. He eats his food and our food. When he is done eating his food (which is usually the same thing we are eating but in a dog bowl) he starts to beg for food from us. He would eat all day if he could. Why are dogs ALWAYS hungry?Freckles sleeps in our bed, gets tons of walks, fetch time, and belly rubs but if one of us leaves for even five minutes he cries and then sniffs around the apartment for us. It is the saddest thing ever. I wish I could talk to him and say, “Daddy, has to go to work and will come home later like he always does.” or “I am only leaving for 30 minutes so I can get some alone time.” But alas, I can not talk to him and he always acts like he is being starved of everything in life.Here is Freckles eating a bone in OUR bed even though he has 2 dog beds and one cage. Does this look like a dog who doesn’t get enough love or food?
Anyway, do any fellow dog lovers have any tips on getting their dog to calm down and realize how loved they are… and why do dogs always eat like they haven’t eaten in years…. even after they have finished a huge serving of spaghetti and meatballs?
