I love how Gunner is so gentle with one of his stuffing free "animals". We call her "dolly". He got this toy for Christmas last year and I took out the stuffing out since he'll just de-stuff it anyway.
We named her Dolly as a joke. A male dog with a "dolly".
He picks her up, whines, then jumps on the couch, puts her down and lays with her, as if he's protecting her.
Before bed we tell him "go find Dolly" and he looks for her, finds her and lays down with her. It's so darn cute.
That's Dolly under his right arm:
I love how excited he gets when my husband gets home from work.
He stands at the front door waiting for him. The door is open so he can see him. The minute he lays eyes on him, his tails starts wagging and hits the railing for the stairs. All I hear is "bam bam bam" from the tail hitting.
As he gets to the door, Gunner bows to him.
As soon as he's in the door, he follows my husband to the kitchen for his hug. He jumps on the counter, leans into my husband and gets his hug. Then he gets a treat.
Never fails to put a smile on my face.
