A Dog’s Empathy

In Being Cute, Dog comfort, Shelley and Zoey, Shelley Widhalm on August 31, 2014 at 11:30 am

I am feeling empathy for others here, showing my sad face.

I am feeling empathy for others here, showing my sad face.

This week I’m going to defer to my BFF Shelley, because I want to share with you her blog about writing with a broken heart.

My heart is broken, too because, as an animal, I can sense good and not-so-good emotions in those around me. I have this quality until I hear food sounds, and then I have other priorities: my stomach. But other than that, and when food is not involved, I feel for my BFF.

When I know she’s upset-angry, I zoom under the bed, hiding there, but when she’s upset-sad, I get smack against her and start cuddling.

I’m telling her, I am here for you because my love is unconditional. That’s the only kind of love I know how to give: constant, unending love, or the forever type that’s not just for now, but is for yesterday, for today and for tomorrow.

Redo: Cute dachshund named Zoey re-posts

In All About Me, Being Cute, Shelley Widhalm on August 24, 2014 at 11:30 am

I messed up a previous photo blog, so I am going to repost it this week. I inadvertently left out the photos. My bad.

I am a bad dog.

Here’s the post:

I am perfectly cute, so there is nothing to revise, fix or edit about me. To demonstrate my cuteness, here are some photos of my 10+ cuteness factor.

After you look at them, check out my writing partner’s blog about revising novels at wordpress.shelleywidhalm.com. She, unlike me, has a lot to fix about herself, or at least her writing.

Here are the photos of cute me:

In this one, I am Shelley’s lapdog next to her laptop as she works on her novel.

Here I am again being a laptop lapdog.

And finally, I just am so darn cute, you have to smile.s

A dog’s ROI

In Being Cute, Cute Dogs, Loving Your Dog on August 17, 2014 at 11:30 am

Zoey is extra cute getting love from grandpa.

Zoey is extra cute getting love from grandpa.

My ROI on being cute is 100 percent 10 fold. Because I am cute, I deserve lots of love (even if I weren’t cute, I like all dogs, and cats, deserve that unconditional regard from my pet parent and BFF) and attention.

To love dogs like me, here are a few tips:

• Mark all dog-related holidays on your calendar, and celebrate them with kisses and treats.
• Take us on walks every day.
• Give us treats, lots of them and of many varieties.
• Buy us cute outfits, so that we get attention.
• Give us opportunities to socialize, because we don’t want to sit around and do nothing.
• Pet us, a lot, because touch is important.
• Make a big poster that says I Love My Dog and hang it in a prominent place, both in our home and your office.
• Take us to the office and tell your co-workers that we’re dog-terns.
• Love us even when we’re naughty. Being naughty is part of the fun of being alive, right?

And last, but not least, tell us you love us every single day.
