Before I get into this story let me just saythat 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 butright before taking it Dakotaas growling at Caleb! He is a bit better but that kissis not from love....it was more like, "okay Mom,I will be nice." He is so jealous that when Caleb is atthe house he will sit right with me anddon't like Caleb getting close.Caleb usually throwsDakota's play toy across theroom so he will jump downand go get it. Then Calebwill rush and sit right next to me! Sweet pic of DJ and Dakota.Truth.....Dakota was wonderingwhat that little thing is....plus he intends to keep an eye on DJ so Nana don't pick him up. DJ napping again and Dakotais making sure he don't go anywhere. Look at Dakota's eyes.....he is not happyabout DJ touching him! But so long as DJ feeds him all is well. "mom don't look at Braden, lookat me"!! "nana I want to crawl but Dakota…
Even to this day I leave the roomDakota is going to followme. I often wonder why but I think heis afraid I will sneak outof the house without him. He can be laying on the otherend of the couchsleeping and the ears nevergo down.I will sneak up slowlynot making a sound... But wide awake he is....and down he goes tofollow! The one that always used tobother me was when Iwent to the bathroom. And why stand right in front ofme while I sat there? I looked it up once and I read thatthey do that cause they knowthat most times you arenot doing anything with yourhands while you sit there....and they know you will reach over and pet them!! The times that he followed meto the shower when hewas younger really got me....he dislikes the bathroom nearthe tub.So to be close to me hewould grab an articleof clothes and take it to the hall and lay down on it. The best...sorry no pic...waswhen he got the toilet papercaught on the article ofclothes and when I got outpaper was all overthe hall. Thank goodness he out …
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 theyard, they greeted him with jumpingup and down and licking himin the face. He greeted them back with a GROWL! Up the deck he goes andat this point he is looking to goin so he can jump up inmom's bed and crawl underthe covers. But to add to his attitude thismorning, he was unable to dothis cause mom made the bedbefore he got there! Yep, he was not a happy camper! Thanks for stopping in,Pam
Last MondayJuly 20th, 2015 was my first day at mynew job....Administrative Assistant to the Superintendentfor the TN School for the Blind. And my office neededa clock..I would have ordered one.Could have bought onebut I decided to make one. A bit of my personality for my office! LOL.... Thanks for stopping in,Pam
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. Thanks for stopping in, Pam
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…
My mom say's that when I wear one of these around my neck I look so handsome!The strange thing about itis that I don't mind wearing one. But mom carries it to far andbuys them for certainholidays. Like Halloween. And the 4th of July! Now, this is a bit different,I don't like wearing this!
See what I mean.....its reallyhard to walk in this. Thanks for stopping in,Pam
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. So....like my other children, he does talk back! Thanks for stopping in, Pam
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.
