Dakota and the Boys

Before I get into this  story let me just say that Dakota is  not really fond of many people. Esp. the BOYS.
He is so JEALOUS of the  grand boys.
Now I know this pic looks so sweet but right before taking it Dakota as growling at Caleb!

He is a bit better but that kiss is not from love.... it was more like, "okay Mom, I will be nice."

He is so jealous that when Caleb is at the house he will sit right with me and don't like Caleb getting close. Caleb usually throws Dakota's play toy across the room so he will jump down and go get it. Then Caleb will rush and sit right next to me!
Sweet pic of DJ and Dakota. Truth.....Dakota was wondering what that little thing is.... plus he intends to keep an eye on  DJ so Nana don't pick him up.

DJ napping again and Dakota is making sure he don't go anywhere.

Look at Dakota's eyes.....he is not happy about DJ touching him!

But so long as DJ feeds him all is well.

"mom don't look at Braden, look at me"!!

"nana I want to crawl but Dakota

B - Boys

B is  for boys! My boys. Grandsons.. Braden in the red, Caleb in green and DJ in white.
I can always be looking at them while at work!

Dakota - From Room to Room

Even to this day I leave the  room Dakota  is going to follow me.
I often wonder why but I think he is afraid I will sneak out of the house without him.
He can be laying on the other end of the couch sleeping and the ears never go down. I will sneak up slowly not making a sound...

But wide awake he is.... and down he goes to follow!
The one that always used to bother me was when I went to the bathroom.

And why stand right in front of me while I sat there?
I looked it up once and I read that they do that cause they know that most times you are not doing anything with your hands while you sit there.... and they know you will  reach over and pet them!!
The times that he followed me to the shower when he was younger really  got me.... he dislikes the bathroom near the tub. So to be close to me he would grab an article of clothes and take it  to the hall and  lay down on it.

The best...sorry no pic...was when he got the toilet paper caught on the article of clothes and when I got out paper was all over the hall.

Thank goodness he out …

Dakota - Monday Morning Attitude

Yes, Dakota has one.

Monday morning being the worst!
And today being Monday was different.
He was met at the back gate by  Cheyenne and Klohe. As I opened the gate to let him in the yard, they greeted him with jumping up and down and licking him in the face.
He greeted them back with  GROWL!
Up the deck he goes and at this point he is looking to go in so he can jump up in mom's bed and crawl under the covers.
But to add to his attitude this morning, he was unable to do this cause mom made the bed before he got there!
Yep, he was not a happy camper!

Tic Toc the Office Clock

Last Monday July 20th, 2015 was my  first day at my new job.... Administrative Assistant  to the Superintendent for the TN School for the Blind.

And my office needed a clock.. I would have ordered one. Could have bought one but I decided to  make one.
A bit of my personality  for my  office!

Dakota - My Buddy

He is my buddy. He has hung with me  through thick and thin.
When I am sick and hurting from my Fibromyalgia  and just laying around he stays right next to  me all day long.

When I had surgery on my shoulder in 2012 he stayed so close to me.
When I left the surgical that day my mom took me to her house. I had to sleep in a recliner and Dakota slept on the bed across from the recliner, facing me the whole time.

When we went home and I was still  having to sleep in the recliner, he slept there with me.

When my mom would come to pic him up to go to her house for a while, he never wanted to leave my side.
Yes, he is my bud.

Dakota - So Afraid of Everything

Okay, so I have NO pics to use to tell this story so I am just posting one of the Dakota!

So handsome!! Anyway, Dakota is afraid  of just about everything. 
Any loud noise. Any kind of sound that catches him  off guard.  He startles easy.
Course most dogs don't like fireworks, Dakota is no different.  Hates them. Hates thunder.
 My washer and dryer is in the closet between the living room and the kitchen. The funniest thing to see is  when Dakota is walking from the living room to the kitchen, through that hall and the washer changes cycles! Dakota can't get those legs moving fast enough and his paws slip and slide all over the place.
Or the fact that he is afraid to  walk past the broom if I have it propped up next to the wall as you walk into the kitchen. Dakota will not walk past it!
And let me start doing some deep cleaning or moving furniture.. he has a fit. Follows my every move and  stays right under me feet. Not sure what he thinks I  am going to do but he is going to make sure I  don't leave the hou…

Dakota - My Mom Say's I am Handsome

My mom say's that when  I wear one of these
around my neck

I look so handsome! The strange thing about it is that I don't mind wearing one.

But mom carries it to far and buys them for certain holidays.
Like Halloween.

And the 4th of July!

Now, this is a bit different, I don't like wearing this!

See what I mean.....its really hard to walk in this.

Dakota- Talks Back

The good thing about having a dog living with you instead of you kids is  they don't  talk back!
LOL... Yep, I used to think that.

But about four years or so ago Dakota proved me  wrong.  He started to talk back. He started grunting at me.

Most times he does it if he  thinks I am not moving fast enough. Like when we get home each day and I go to unlock the door... if I don't get it unlocked and open as fast as  Dakota thinks I should, he grunts. my other children, he does talk back!

Dakota - Pay Attention To Me

Mom... Pay attention to JUST me Please!
Yep, if you have not realized  yet Dakota, AKA THE KING thinks the world revolves around him! He thinks all attention  should be about him!

Mom, stop watching TV and love on me.

And don't talk about those BOYS!

Cause I am your only special boy!

Dakota is very jealous of the grandboys. I can be on the phone with them and he starts this loud whining. He can't can't handle the thoughts of me giving the boys attention.
What is worse is me to be on the computer. Laptop not always so bad but when I get on the big computer he has a fit. 
Here a few pics of him  wanting attention while I  am on the laptop.
