I Am In The Doghouse!

The dog and I are the only females in the house...well, okay.  The cat is female too...but she doesn't count because she's so old, meows loudly at night and thinks she owns my husband.  We're not sure about the turtle...never thought to ask and I sure as heck don't want to know how you can know!  LOL
Lady is my buddy.  She follows me from room to room.  She's waiting for me when I get home.  Well, she's at least on the couch nearest the garage door...waiting for me.  She loves me when no one else does.
She hates me.
At least whenever I make French Dip.  Which is an overnight dish that must cook in the crockpot.  It involves a huge roast, beef broth, French Onion soup and garlic.  You start cooking it 24 hrs before you're going to serve it.  It can be smelled throughout the house all night long.  It is her favorite little tidbit left on a boy's plate that didn't get eaten but was shared with her.
Lady's crate is in the den...which is next to the kitchen...which is where the French Dip is cooking.  I woke up this morning to this:
Her puppy dog eyes full of disappointment...hurt feelings...disgust at the human who would make her smell this scrumptious delight all night long...and not share.
I told her I was sorry.  How remorseful I was.  How even the guys have to wait 'til tonight to have their sandwiches.  But I promised I would share with her.  That she would have a tasty treat if she was patient and would love me again.
I think she forgives me!
I hope she forgives me!


  1. Hello, thank you so much for all the kind compliments on Flickr.Poor Lady, such torture!

  2. Ruby, love your blog and all your handcrafted items! Lady will get hers tonight!

  3. Dinner is whenever we can catch it on the run! Between soccer, Tae Kwan Do and basketball...so grab a sandwich and let's eat!

  4. That is so cute! Poor Lady...I bet she will be rewarded tonight though for being so patient!

  5. I'm sure she will forgive (probably has already). My sweet dog passed away in March, and I still miss him terribly. I can really relate to what you said about Lady following you around and loving you even when it feels like no one else does. I always thought the dog was my biggest fan! He loved me and couldn't see all my flaws -- :).

  6. Lady wished to convey her sincere thanks and appreciation of everyone's concern for her. She also wants to let you know that everyone gave her a tidbit from their sandwiches (Bean gave her almost half of his before I knew what he was up to!). She promptly went outside, did her doggy duty, came inside, took a nice long drink and curled up on her couch with her quilt and pillows for an evening nap!


Love hearing from bloggers wherever you are!
