    Default Expressive dog

    Today we had the all too common drama caused by my daughter dawdling at bed time. This was after we had had a 'group hug' with Banjo with lots of giggles. It ended with my daughter bursting into tears and yelling at me as she walked to the door of my room. At which stage I saw that the dog had quickly and quietly moved away from us because of my daughter's crying. She has gotten into trouble before for making her cry when she jumped up on her or nipped her in the face in play. No matter how consistent I try to be, I am probably more threatening when I react to bad behaviour when I have a child crying bitterly in my ear.

    So I am watching the dog who is looking at my daughter with ears slightly back and eyes a bit lowered and very still. She just looked so serious and adorable that I started laughing. Which prompted my daughter to start yelling "Stop laughing!" and made her cry even harder. Which made me laugh even harder. But what made me nearly pee myself was watching the dog who had this "oh-oh" expression on her face when she looked at my crying daughter and then changed to happy face and tail wagging when she looked at me and kept looking from one to the other with the appropriate expression.

    Fortunately my daughter saw the humour in it eventually and then everyone was laughing. Including Banjo.

    I have always loved the term "Drama Queen" it is so descriptive.

    She'll never grow out of it. She gets it from me.

    I do love sensitive dogs.......Sounds like a happy ending

    Dogs reactions are funny.....Katy who has led an easy life from puppy and really is never told off, because she is a good dog. Has a very funny reaction if hubby and I argue......Our arguments are very low key and sometimes even only about stuff like just different opinions......Katy hates it and sits in the middle, looking from one to the other and giving us her side of things. She makes us laugh and even if we have a more serious argument it often just finishes it. And if we start laughing she gets very animated and quite noisy, happy barking......

    My 6 year old daughter was in stitches tonight when she was trying to brush her teeth and Alexander kept trying to butt in and grab her toothbrush. Not long ago he was a little fluffball she used to carry about, and now he's face height with her!!

    I'd love to be six for a day, just so that my dogs were as tall as me...

    Awww they're cute when they think they are in trouble.

    Whenever I hurt myself and say "Ouch!" Brody always backs away with his ears back. When he jumps on me and accidentally scratches me I always say "ouch" then push him away so he thinks ouch just means he is in trouble now

    I love their ears - so cute the way they go up and down depending on how happy they are.

    My neighbour across the road owns the most beautiful GSD, and our dogs love to play with each other even though they're both adult entire males - they just see eye to eye and seem to be happy to rule the neighbourhood together. But one time, we caught them playing with an illicit item (the new plant my neighbour's mother had just dropped off - if it doesn't smell like us it seems to be fair game :S). So we grabbed both dogs and started telling them off, but then it was like they were baby animals in a cartoon they had such cute faces. They both have these little eyebrows and super expressive faces and when they fold their ears back it's adorable. They looked so sorry, it was almost a super-human task not to just sit down and have hug time.

    i love Nash's reaction if someone starts coughing a lot - you know, you swallow the wrong way or something. He runs over to them, super alert, ears up, tail up, and stares at them, his face all tense as if he is very concerned. It cracks me up so much.

    LOL loving these stories.

    Barneys biggest reaction is when someone is in the pool. If I go and float in the middle, he gets well panicky. He comes and puts one foot in the water and starts pulling the water toward himself. Its like he thinks I cant swim...he barks and just looks terrified for me. Soon as I go back and hold on to the side, off he goes.

    But he will run down from way up by the house if I go floating in the middle LOL
