The dog with two families

This is the story of a dog with two families. One family of four, a woman and three children, are the primary owners. The second, two senior citizens, look after the dog when the woman of the first family does night shifts.


The children in the first family walk the dog, help bathe her and play games with her. They sometimes give her morsels of human food. The dog loves being included in family activity and is always eager to go in the vehicle with them. She also sits on the couch on her special blanket.


With the second family, the dog can also lie on her special blanket on the couch. She plays games like find the hidden treat and eats food specially prepared for her to replace or supplement traditional dog food. She goes for walks with the seniors or on picnics where she eats too. She has stare down sessions with squirrels.


Any time the first family visits the second, they bring the dog too. She is reluctant to leave though when they head for home. On her last visit, she hid behind the seniors when the first family was leaving. Then when she finally headed towards the vehicle, she went back to the seniors again. They accompanied her to the vehicle. However, the strangest thing happened when she arrived back home with her first family. The dog refused to leave the vehicle. 





The look on her face says it all.


Oh Georgie!

This reminds me of my BiL's dog, who would try to make herself scare when it was time to leave the cottage to return to the city.

Awww what a sweet dog. My son had a dog - a pug named Grimace - who got confused about whose dog he was. He loved his grandma - me - the best and I loved him the best. It was like a "2 family situation" so I know intimately what this is. Grimace has been gone now more that 5 years and I still tear up at thoughts of him. We were soul mates. I miss him so.

That dog has life figured out, I'd say. My grandmother lived in some old folks' bungalows where there was a cat that was adopted by several people and no one was really sure who it belonged to. It became a very fat and contented cat.

Georgie's a very special dog, the best ever! Does she read, I can see her smiling reading these comments. :)

This is such a sweet story, Marie. Thank you for that.

Maybe Georgie prefers a quieter home, more often, now that she is getting older. Or maybe the food is speaking to her :)

Joanne Noragon said...

Oh Georgie, for sure.

Dogs have much more than we give them credit for.

I could about cry at the look on her face....she wants you to go home with her. She would be in heaven if you did.

I will be back...I typed a comment and don't know if I had clicked to publish...I am crazy. I got interrupted and came back and 'x-ed' out of the window and then could not remember if I had clicked to publish.
