The Fairy Dog Mom's Bedtime Stories
My name is Elizabeth, and I am one of the Fairy Dog Mother Inn Step-Moms! For those of you who have seen the Dalmatian in the photos on our Facebook Page, that is my little boy Devon.
Dogs have it sooo good! If I could reincarnate it would be as one of my dog guests. But for today, for this moment I will just practice what dogs teach me every single day....
- Sit (be still)
- Stay (don't run from your feelings)
- Leave It (walk away from the cookies)
- Play (be curious!)
That's all we need to know! (tee shirts coming soon!)
I've known for awhile that my house smells like dog, that my car does and that I probably do too. The hair, the dirt, the slobber...everything you'd expect from someone who lives with lotsa dogs. But I sank to a new 'low' recently. As the dogs were taking their morning pee today I came scarrrrrry close to just lifting my robe, squatting, and peeing in the grass along with them. Very close! It felt like the natural thing to do---woof!
Two of my little guests are notorious for stepping in water bowls, counter surfing and generally "talking" a lot --especially at mealtime. So when I bid farewell to two of the cutest chocolate labs ever this morning I broke down and cried. They won't be coming back because they are moving out of state. You would have thought they were my own or that'd I'd known them for a decade, but no. I guess that's why I'm a Fairy Dog Mom....and a cry baby!
