|Wyatt the Wonderdog!|
On the rare occasion he is a watchdog, growling under his breath through the door at the dog across the street, but 99.9% of the time he's just too damned friendly. I swear, he'd waggle his butt and lick the hand of a burglar if they smiled at him. And yea, he actually does smile! Geez I have to get a picture of him doing this, just so you'll believe me, but he's a smiley little dude.
And he jumps. Oh boy does he jump! He bounces up and down like a ball, and usually he does it whenever there's a food-ish item around that he thinks he'd enjoy. I gotta get a video of that too.
Here's Wyatt last year ago watching the "magic box". Well, at least that's what I think he thinks it is.
And during the school year he waits patiently at the front door for my son to get off of the school bus.
Sometimes I wonder what he'd say if he could talk. And I think I might have an answer, as I found Wyatt's evil twin on YouTube. Apparently his name is Gryphon, and he looks like Wyatt, except he's 1) A shih tzu 2) White-ish, whereas Wyatt is black-ish and 3) Very very evil!!! But I love this little guy too. And now after watching this video, it makes me wonder what Wyatt actually thinks about if he doesn't get his doggie biscuit before bed at night.
Now don't laugh, one of these days I'm going to write a children's book based on Wyatt. I've already got a working title for it-Wyatt The Whatever. You see, my little guy was born at a puppy mill where they bred designer dogs and we rescued him after the mill was shut down. When we adopted him, we just wanted to save him & could care less what breed he was, and honestly to this day, we're still not 100% sure. Our old vet said he looked like & had the fur, height, face, and body structure of a havanese, so we're sticking with that. The tale (or should I say tail?) would be about a puppy that's rescued, only to go to a dog park a few months later and meet other dogs, and then try to figure out what he is. Is he a beagle? A poodle? A golden retriever? What IS he?
But that's just me writing/thinking out loud here, and this idea is definitely high on my bucket list.
So tell me, does your pet do anything unusual? Do they possess superpowers? Tell me about it! And I'm going to start following my dog around more often with my phone (call me the "pup-arazzi") so I can catch him doing stunts that crack me up.
