Well Butterball has been acting out a lot lately. He has started to like barking. I will be sitting there with my boyfriend watching TV and he will get jealous and start barking and looking up at me. “Mommy stop ignoring me, I want attention. Maybe I have been neglecting my little buddy I am not sure. My focus for the past month has been school and my boyfriend. I am going to introduce you to my boyfriend. His name is Daniel. We do not go to the same high school but we live in the same area. Daniel is going to be leaving in a couple months to attend a military college on the east coast. I have been trying to focus on spending my time with him since its running out. For the next four years, we will have a long distance relationship. We have been together for three years. So poor little butterball has been neglected so that I can spend time with Daniel. I feel bad when he starts acting neglected by barking and whining at me but my priority right now is to devote my time to school and Daniel
Butterball has taken a liking to:
eating things on top of me (which gets messy)
climbing on the couch to steal my food
climbing on the couch to crawl over anything in my lap
jumping on the couch to get into my face
The little guy is acting out and I am sure once school is over I will be able to devote more of my time to him.
Okay so on Sunday I caved in…..I decided to take Butterball to the dog park. I was so excited and butterball seemed to enjoy his leash and being in the car. He loves to eat his leash when I first put it on him it is like a ritual for him. He also loves to stick his head out the window (do not worry I am holding him to make sure he does not jump out). Well we got out of the car and started to walk to the dog park he seemed as excited as I was…..but once he got inside he nearly pooped his pants. I was expecting this little dog to act like he does with my other dog so I was a bit disappointed that he liked staying as close to Daniel and I. The big doggies seemed very interested in butterball but he would sit there and be scared and once he had the opportunity, he would run over to us. He did enjoy barking and herding the little kids that were there. Oh and chasing the little ball the girl was kicking. He is silly….I am hoping he will get used to bigger dogs, he looks so small and scared. He just needs to break out of his little shell (I have this theory that he has personality traits of Daniel and I…..this is definitely something that reflects me)
"hi mommy i know you have food. now give me some :D"
i took this after our nap
