10. She reminds me of our Lady-Dady Collie

My mother's next door neighbors had gotten a standard Collie puppy, a beautiful girl whom they proceeded to ignore. It was the 1st dog ever for them but that was no excuse. Her only bedding was an old blanket thrown out on their carport. She shivered so badly in winter's cold weather that her teeth chattered. Seriously.

Whenever we drove up my mom's driveway (I was married & living 40m away) in cold weather, she'd come to greet us with those rattling teeth, poor beautiful girl. Sooo, what I chose to do was let her come into my mother's house....& of couse, I feed her & renamed "Lady" Lady-Dady & nicknamed "Chatter-Tooth." When summertime rolled around, Miss Chatter-Tooth, the big baby, would chatter those teeth hoping to come in & be fed. It "worked."

I always went along with her "game" over my mother's objections, who, btw, finally broke down & adopted Lady. I dearly loved that dog so much - she became our camping bubby.

Some pupsters learn that soft-hearted folks "fall" for their clever games. And we laugh.


Do we deserve them?
