Bounce back attitude!

Tonight, Dora reminded me of one of the great reasons I love her. It was suppose to be brush night, but guess who need a butt bath (everyone who was in chat last night- knows I cursed myself when saying she hasn't needed one in a long long time). So I start up right from getting home (DH wasn't home today and went to a confrence) so Dora who is thrilled to see me, gets let outside to go potty, comes in and right away to the bath! So she is looking upset at me like "go back to work!" and we blow dry which is her least favorite. I only did it about half way cause I felt bad. Then she runs around jumps on me and starts kissing me some more. She has such a bounce back attitude.

My maltese is still hidding under the couch as I write this and Dora is on the pillow next me to relaxing now!

Ha ha ha!! I love your Dora & Belle stories. Even though they are vastly different, I feel like they are both so loveable! (and I feel like I know them through you)

I agree, Kimberly, but I think the reason I love the Belle and Dora stories so much is that Amanda is such a great story-teller! You have such a great sense of humor, Amanda.

I can totally picture your girls now.

Awww - thanks guys, I just had one of those reminder moments of why i love these furry little ones so much. I have a good friend who is in love with Dora and she says I tell too many Belle stories and my honest response is because Belle is the monster who doesn't stop shocking me (thank goodness she is so cute). Dora is the good dog who always does what she is told and usually you don't have to tell her. She runs up and sits if she wants a treat, she kisses me first and doesn't bark if i stop petting her, she seriously knows if i am having a bad day, she thinks our guest bed is the new toy perch cause i always play kitty toy with her. If anything she is a bad dog about- she is too in love with playing tug of war and is convinced I am too!

Poor Belle!

She knows what she's in for, she's no fool!

Mine hide when I start their bathwater, and then when the first one is in the tub, the other one comes over to taunt them. Then the roles get reversed later on!

Dora seems like such a sweetheart! I love your stories Amanda, even the ones of the little Belle terror.

Amanda - did you forget to shave her? I thought you had a "every two weeks" thing going.
