It's a Dog's Life

The fellows made a run to the feed store on Saturday, and poor Pierre was left behind. This just shouldn't happen, because he was beside himself. No, he was beside the door. With tail tucked and head hanging, he just stood there.

And stood there.

And stood there.

See, he's still standing there.

So I grabbed the camera...of course.

As it would turn out, the feed store forgot to load the chicken feed, which my fellows only discovered when they got to the barn, so they stopped back by the house to say they were traveling to town again.

"Would you please take Pierre with you. He can't handle this."

He doesn't look like a farm dog, the little fancypants beast, but he doesn't know that and thinks he is one. The fellows probably put a sack over his head when they got to the store.

The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy. The Lord is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works. All thy works shall praise thee, O Lord; and thy saints shall bless thee. ~Psalm 145:8-10

How funny! We have a big ole black lab that thinks he's being punished if we go to the feed store without him. He thinks that he absolutely MUST guard the truck --- read lay there and nap-- while we are getting the chicken, bunny and goat groceries. Our little yorkie was that way too but she's too old now to care.

Oh how pathetic! He looks so forlorn you just want to snatch him up and hug him! What a nice dog you've got there. And does he not chase the chickens or the cow-nots?

Jeannie, what a hoot your guard dog is. (And nice to see you here.)

Janie, I did snatch up Pierre and hug him...several times. Alas, Mama-love was not his true heart's desire. We had to train him to not chase the chickens. We use him to herd the CowNots, although he's actually afraid of them, so he doesn't do a spectacular job. I think they've figured out he's only going to get so close.

This post was sad...poor little Pierre!! He's a beautiful dog, and I wish I had a little friend that loyal. He sounds so sweet!
