Just Me and the Dogs

Chris was in San Antonio this week for work so I had the dogs and the house all to myself. Dakota wasn't very happy about this...she waited for Chris by the front door most of the time, except when it was feeding time and when I made her come sit in my lap for a little bit, but even then she stared at the door waiting for Chris. She is going to be REALLY happy when Chris finally walks through the door tonight...her little nub tail is going to go crazy.

The rest of the dogs played outside and laid around most of the time. They were really excited to share the bed with me at would think that I would have MORE room in the bed when Chris is gone, but I ended up sleeping in a ball because all the dogs (except for Dakota) were in bed with me, sprawled out. I even tried to stretch my legs out at one point in the night and Gabe pushed me away! This morning I woke up and Chase was sharing my pillow with me, with his face right in mine.

Gabe was allowed to watch all of his favorite shows like Human Prey, It's Me or the Dog, Houston Animal Cops and Rivermonsters, without being interrupted by Chris's shows like Judge Judy and Jerseylicious. Gabe wasn't very happy when I wanted to watch The Real World, but he didn't seem to mind watching Teen Mom 2. (It's a good thing that Gabe likes to watch educational shows, or else my mind would only be polluted with MTV).

When we were watching t.v. one night, I looked over and saw Simba sitting, and staring at the door. I guess she missed Chris a little bit too. If you look closely, you can see a black blob laying to the left of the gate...that's Dakota waiting for Chris. What a loyal girl :).

Tomorrow, some friends are dropping off a couple of their dogs to hangout for the weekend, then on Wednesday my mom is dropping off Patch for a few days when she goes to visit my grandparents. Our house is going to be filled with lots of wagging tails and dog breath. Chris is on his own though because I'm heading out to Miami on Sunday. The dogs will love getting to sleep in our bed 2 weeks in a row!
