I can’t help but laugh at their big Husky named Speck since Addie named him after my mini-Dachshund. I remember the first time I saw him, Addie was probably 3, or almost 3 and I was so afraid he was too big of a dog for her but he never growls or snarls at her. She isn’t mean to him and she really loves him, but some of the things he has to endure!
Yesterday she had him wearing the unicorn headband. He wasn’t thrilled . . simply because he probably had no idea what was on his head but he put up with it and never complained.
When he first showed up at their house, they could leave a hamburger on the coffee table. He might look at it and want it but he would never touch it. He’s “progressed” a bit through the years and I heard he got a package of ribs off the kitchen counter one night when they were outside.
I wonder if his former owners miss him or wonder what happened to him. He’s definitely a great dog but you can probably see from the picture, this time of year, he is shedding his winter coat and he leaves a mess of dog hair everywhere he goes. I’ve tried to help Nicole by vacuuming every morning but by the end of the day, it looks like we haven’t vacuumed in days.
This all confirms for me that your dog should match your floor. Rita’s light hair shows up horribly on my dark wood floors; Speck’s dark hair shows up horribly on Nicole’s light carpet. If we ever move, I’m going to make sure my dog matches my floor! 🙂
