Glitzy Trains Daddy to do New Trick

For those of you that follow the chronicles of Glitzy. One of the most spoiled dogs on the planet. She has again outdone herself! I wouldn’t have it any other way.

So, two nights ago, about 2:37 AM. I hear a bark coming from the living room. A precocious bark only Glitzy can make. Several attempts were made to call her to no avail.

The trek for the living room begins. Glitzy continue the sharp bark as I look at Glitzy to ask, “what do you want, Glitzy?” I’m scanning the room for toys, bones, or other potential daddies fetch for my items. Not seeing anything I sit on the couch.

Glitzy stands up and paws me as she does when asking to be picked up. Grabbing her, I put her on the couch. Immediately she makes a couple of turns and flops next to me to go back to sleep. She wanted to sleep on the couch and thought it was a good idea for me to be there with her.

She seriously called me down to the living room and wanted me to sit not lay on the couch so she could go back to sleep. Yes, diva is never too strong a word for my Glitzy.

Glitzy Obeying the Leash Law

Now we have gone from barking in bed at night for me to move so she can get a new spot she wants, too bringing me to the living room so she can sleep on the couch next to me on her couch blanket (yes Glitzy has couch blankets, floor blankets and blankets on the bed).

As I am typing this article, my fur baby is staring at me, as I suspect she will have me fetching something for her forthwith. I was right she has gone to the bedroom, now barking. It’s the afternoon so she will want me to lay down so she can watch a movie. If you’ve read about Glitzy, you will know she loves to watch movies.

Glitzy, Movies, Pets

For now, this is the end until Glitzy trains me to perform a new service for her!

Glitzy a Spoiled Dog’s Life

For those of you that have pets, I am sure some of you may be able to relate to having a spoiled dog. Glitzy is on the outer rim of spoiled, I love Glitzy and wouldn’t have it any other way.

Her latest antics are pretty fun and worth a story.

This will help set the stage for her latest thing knowing a little story of how she communicates with me.

One night a couple of years ago, Glitzy would come to me while I was on the couch and bark at me. She had food, water, bones, and everything to make a princess dog a princess dog. She just wouldn’t stop barking at me. dog, pet, Glitzy

I got up looking around, talking to her, “what do you want?” When I walked by the bedroom door, she walked in and jumped on the bed. Now, I figured out what she wanted; it was time to go to bed. So every night since that night around 9:00 PM she will come to me and bark because it’s time for bed.

If I obey her, the barking stops, if I don’t, it only gets worse!

So what is Glitzy’s new command for me you might ask???

For the last two nights, she wakes up. When she wants me to get up, she puts her front paws on me and pushes. Now she doubles that with her bossy bark.

So while trying to translate her bark into what the heck she wants. I am looking for her bone, doesn’t want that. Looking around the bed to see if I can see what she wants, I turn over and move the opposite direction of where I was laying, she, in turn, jumps over me and puts her paw to indicate covers please (she also has a command for sheets).

She decided I needed to roll over the other way so she could move to a new spot and have me so she could cuddle up next to me to go back to sleep under the covers.

OMG, spoiled! 

So now when Glitzy wants a new spot, she barks at me to move into a new position so she might be comfortable. 

Pets For Hope

Pets bring such joy into our lives. If you currently don’t have a pet or have never had a pet. This article is for you.

For many years I shied away from having a pet. To much trouble, mess and whatever other excuse I could muster up. Like with all things in our lives timing and reason will intervene. Along came Glitzy.adopt a pet, pet, dog

In times when life is stressful or difficult, I can always come home to a wagging tail, tons of kisses and sweet barks welcoming me back. She is still ready to provide comfort, love, and companionship no matter what. She can pull me out of a dark place just because she wants to play. Throw her toys or bark at me for treats.

Sometimes we all need a distraction from life. I can tell you without reservation that a pet brings such joy into a home. Adopting a pet is such a blessing to the animal and your family. Dogs seem to know somehow when they get home and start getting a sense that they’re back. It’s as though they somehow know you saved them from the life in the shelter. Don’t get me wrong shelters have amazing folks caring for the animals. Like humans, dogs need a den, a home that is safe. You become a part of the pack.

After a time dogs will bond with you as nothing else compares with the love a dog. All they want is a pet, a hug and a cuddle. In Glitzy’s case throw in a couple of treats as well.

Having something to care for is a responsibility. So please before you get a pet make sure you’re willing to take care of, keep safe, warm, and pet veterinary care. Pets need heartworm medicine, vaccinations, and routine care for illness. Make sure you can budget for these things. It’s not fair to a pet to suffer because we did not think about monetary consideration.

Research the right pet for you or your family. Take a look at breeds for things such as hyperactivity. Water dogs need to exercise and play a lot this is just one example. All races have something that requires your particular attention. Hyper dogs for instance that need lots of exercises to burn off energy. If you live in a small apartment, this could be a recipe for disaster. Torn up clothes, furniture and all sorts of not so fun things to come home to find. So be sure you read the temperament of a breed before you just get that dog.

Adopting dogs, you can not go wrong. Having passed two myself. I can tell you from real experience they were the sweetest dogs. Anyone who has taken a pet says the same thing. They feel like the animal knows you saved them. It’s a unique bond for sure
