“Be the person your dog thinks you are”
By JW Stevens
Hello Yvonne. Our dogs are Japanese Chin, which are known to be little “tricksters”. They’re also called “cat dogs”, since their personalities are a lot like cats. I don’t know what they’re thinking, but I’m pretty sure these two appreciate me more when I am not what they expect me to be! They get charged up when I do something they’re not used to! Perhaps they thrive more on the side of surprise and the unexpected!
Good to see you posting! Springtime is such a busy time, that I can’t seem to get to writing either.
Lori, it so enjoyed reading your comment about your little chins. They are adorable and fascinating little dogs. I always love seeing them included in your posts. I imagine you are knocking yourself out this spring as you mow, plant, and prune. I have not posted in well over a year that was anything of my own. I did share a post of my good blogging friend that he did for me about birds back in the winter.
Hi Yvonne, Muddy’s eyes show real love. I love the quote and it is good for any of us. But no problem for us, we love animals don’t we ! Have a nice week. Thoughts from France
take great care!
Hello, Chatou. Have not heard from you in a while and have wondered if you have been ok. Thank for commenting. Lovely to hear from you in France. Stay well. Yvonne
It’s a great quote, sentiment, and advice.
Yes sir, if only we could measure up to what our dogs think of us but I am afraid that many of us fall short.
Now, that made me laugh. Then I started thinking about cats, and Dixie Rose in particular. I think the cat version would be,”Don’t be the person your cat knows that you are.”
Thanks for commenting, Linda. I am having a bit of a problem trying to figure out how the new WP format works. I have no idea how to post more than one pic and other aspects. It has really messed my limited ability to try to work out a post. I had a different pic in mind but I chose to use one of my own. Indeed, I think you are probably right about how a cat views its human. I think mine see me as the one who holds the key to their food and a soft warn spot to lay on. They march to the beat of their own drummer.
Love the quote! 🙂
I am glad that you liked the quote. I think it is quite appropriate given the fact that our dogs seem to worship the ground we walk on or a semblance of that. Thanks for commenting, Colin.
