We like to refer to our pets as the Desserts – Blackberry (the one-eyed, 12 year old cat), Cobbler (the 8 year old black lab), and Bourbon Pecan (the almost 4 year old Olde English Bulldogge). They are sweet and lovable and completely devoted to Sweet Husband. They could really give a damn less about me, even my Cobbie dog, who was my boon companion and defender long before SH ever came into the picture. They’re his animals.
Bourbon doggie, though, really loves his daddy. He wants to be wherever SH is. If SH is outside, and Bourbon is stuck inside, the doggie sits at the back door (or the front…depending on where SH is) and cries like he’s being killed. Every night, without fail, the puppy is on the couch, right next to his dad, if not nestled between his legs. As close as he can get to my husband is where he wants to be.
He lives a rough life. Truly.
