Look at Me!

Chocolate Labrador Puppy: Cheyenne @ 8 weeks old
A quiet morning... a cup of delicious hot tea...

The the heart attack happens!

No sooner do I sit down to in my home office to start the day then an ear shattering high-pitch single bark comes from my kitchen. My heart jumps as the hot tea runs down my chin. It is Cheyenne and she wants me and wants me now!

I run to the kitchen to see what the life threatening event is when I spot Cheyenne laying relaxed on the "dog butt mat" (my sink floor mat that the dogs think is for them more then us humans). There is no emergency - no fire - just the wee pup wanting mommy to come to shower her with love and attention.

Look at me... love me... aren't I cute... you can't resist...

Blasted dog! She knows how to look up at me with a smile that only a Lab can give and looks so darn cute doing it too! I can't help but see the tiny puppy she once was in those eyes... so cute and cuddly... so irresistible.

My annoyance starts to soften as I continue to look into her eyes. No, I must resist. I must not give into the Lab puppy dog stare. I must hold my alpha ground and let her know that that was not appropriate behavior no matter how much I want to smile or scratch her under her ear (her "sweet" spot).

I turn away, ignoring her, and slowly walk back to my home office... making sure to not to laugh while hiding the huge smile on my face from prying Labrador eyes...

That's my sassy girl!

Doesn't that just get you? I mean... you don't want to run because it may be a false alarm but when you finally do sit tight, it turns out she isn't crying wolf and needs to go potty or something.

If she were not so cute... :p

Diesel is always in the same room as us - we call him our trailer. But what he does do is on the weekends when we finally get to sleep in, he'll come up right next to our faces and yawn really loudly with his nose about half in inch away from mine. He'll keep doing it until one of us wakes up. Half the time it's not because he needs to go out... he just wants belly rubs!
