This weekend Audrey came to stay with us. She is, and always will be, ALPHA DOG! It doesn't matter that she's 14 years old, it doesn't matter that she walks really slow and it doesn't matter that I could probably beat the bejeepers outta her. Nope, the first time I met her she put me in my place with a growl, bark and a nip on the neck. I didn't get hurt, but it taught me a big lesson, don't mess with Audrey.
I enjoyed having her visit, I follow her around like a shadow, "Whatcha Doing? Huh, can I join in?" She lays down, so I lay down, she gets up, so I get up, she barks, so I bark, this goes on all day long. The only time I won't do exactly what she is doing is when she eats. ALPHA DOG = Eats first. So I sit in the corner and watch her eat, and I wait to eat my food.....even though we have separate bowls, far away from each other, I won't eat till she is done....but then that big old meany comes and eats my food too! What's a guy to do? This happened twice, no food for Murph. It was a big fat bummer.
Finally my lady figured out that I had to have my bowl of food in another room, away from Audrey, so for three days I got to eat my food in the bathroom. At least I got to eat.
Audrey is home now and I can eat in the kitchen again, I am so happy!
