What do you adore about your dogs?

I know we all love our dogs. But, there are some qualities that I'm sure we can't get enough of. Here are some things that I adore about Elmo:

He has the cutest yawns.

He misses everyone when he wakes up in the mornings. (me, my husband and the other dogs)

He thinks everybody loves his favorite toys as much as him.

He is very sensitive. I always ask him if I hurt his big 'ole feelings.

He is so lovey dovey. He loves to be hugged and kissed.

He is always Mr. Goody Two Shoes. If there are toys sitting on his crate which he can reach, he won't get them on his own. He'll look at me to get them for him. He thinks some things are off limits for him and he strictly follows those rules, even when no one set them.

Here are things I adore about Molly:

I love the expressions on her face. You can always tell if she's happy or annoyed with you.

She is always thinking three steps ahead and you can see it in her eyes.

She is so rough and tough, but she can be such a softy sometimes.

She likes to go into the bedroom and roll around in the bed when no one is there. She stops when someone sees her.

Re: What do you adore about your dogs?


I love how he wakes me up in the morning with a hug!

How he tries to "eat" my eye.

How he runs through my legs & waits for me to scratch his butt.

How much he "talks"

How he still sits in my lap (well half of him) lol

How he itches me back when Im itching him

How loud he snores

How when I feed him treats, he gently sits up on his hind legs

I could go on forver!!
I love my baby

Re: What do you adore about your dogs?

Here are a few...

I love...
-that he likes to cuddle
-how he is so dainty when he takes treats
-how he greets me at the door like it is the best thing that happened all day (even if I just went to get something from the car)

I love...
-He is always by my side
-He looks at me like he is waiting for the next command
-He could kick Moose's butt, but he is very gentle with the "old man"
-He protects the dog sitter when Moose gets snippy

I never have to pick up dropped food in the kitchen

Re: What do you adore about your dogs?

I love how Grimm really "talks" with his energy, his feelings.

I love his velvetty head wrinkles.

I love his charcoal-striped, peanut-butter colored "jumbo feets"

I love his smiles.

I love his yodeling with happiness when he greets me, or gets something he enjoys.

I love his cuddly, snuggly, super-affectionate nature.

I love that he LOVES to work with and for me.

I love his groaning when I brush him.

I love his playfulness.

I love that he loves everyone he meets

I love his sense of humor

I love his sleepytime harrumphs and sighs

I love that he has a set bedtime

I love his warm kisses

I love his happiness

I love his doofocity

I love his happy-talky morning kissy-greetings

I love his enjoyment of chest/tummy rubs

I love the warmth of his character, his loving nature

I love that he wears his heart on his sleeve

I love Grimm.

Re: What do you adore about your dogs?


The lip smacking noises she makes right before she passes out

Her spazzy running

Thinking she can still sit in my lap

Her "good morning" kisses that wake me up better than any alarm

That look in her eyes when she has a sock, underwear or anything else that she's not supposed to have as she scampers off

The cute look she has when she's asleep and her head is on the armrest of the couch

Watching her streeeeetch

The unbridled joy she has when getting a new toy

Her happiness when I come home

Following me to the bathroom and everywhere!

Her giant soft ears

Snuggling up during bedtime

Her overall sweetness


The "look" that he has that can make anyone want to pet him

His excitment of getting in a car

Watching him run and play

How excited he gets when you say "hungry"

How he'll go off to bed but come back to see if we're coming too

His bravery

His kind, kind eyes

That despite the fact he was abused, is the most loving dog

His goofy smile

How he'll jump up on the couch as soon as we walk out the door, and if we come back in, his look of shock of "how did I get here??"

The joy he brings people during nursing home visits

His grunts and grumbles

His refusal to go outside and get his feet wet if it's raining

There's too much for both dogs! They are just the best!!!

Re: What do you adore about your dogs?

Arwen: her calm, sweet attitude, her cute but broken ear.

Jenna: her exhuberance in licking my whole face including glasses when she greets me.

Babs: her quiet affection, and attentiveness, and obedience. Yep that's her in my avatar -- puppy owners, there is hope for your little devils yet.

Rushie: his easy going manner around people.

Heidi: her energy and willingness to listen and her responsiveness.

Whitney: her stealing of my bear and sleeping with it, but keeping it perfectly unmolested; I suppose that would be her gentle nature.

Tori: the way she jumps up on the fencing of the kennel or up against the dog shelter and presents her head and neck for me to pet and love on her.

Ninja: her utter badness -- she is an abolute devil, but a fun one. I guess that is mischievousness if that is a word.

Milla: her bouncy happiness, her devotion to me and wanting to be right with me, but her ability to harness her energy so that her exhuberance is completely delicate and easy on the old lady.

Joy: she has already inherited her mother's face licking, and she is utter cuteness at this point. She can relax and lay down, go up to people, or face gigundo doggy.

Odie, Joy-Joy
Bear Cub, Hepsi-Pepsi
Cujo2, Karma Chameleon

Re: What do you adore about your dogs?

Abbey: I love the looks of devotion and affection that she shows when she looks at us. The way she "chases and noses" the cats when we say "Get the kitty". How she would have her random "oops" moments with her toys and not paying attention to where she is going, such as smacking into the trees or tripping over a stick. The way she would rest her head on our laps and stay there. The protective stance she puts on herself when strangers walk by, and she feels she need to let them know she is watching them and won't let them near me without her permission. The way she sticks her head out of the window during car rides, her eyes squinting in satisfaction and her tail wagging against my head.

Haley: I love her spunky attitudes and her howls/growls when she gets playful. Love to hear her howling at the fire truck sirens as they pass by. The stance of her ears when she becomes curious. How laid back she is and just lies by our feet. Her warm, friendly approaches to strangers when I take her with me to places. The way she dances her paws around my hands when I slap my hands onto the floor in a repetitive beat. Our game of puffs, when I would puff, and then she puffs, and we just go back and forth on the puffing game until one of us tires out.

I love our dogs!

Abbey: GSD-1 year
Haley: Golden Retriever/Chow mix- 8 months old

Suki: Calico DSH-1 year
