Thank you, everyone, for your kind and insightful comments on Monday’s rant about Cooper’s allergy issues. We still don’t have an answer…
So in the meantime, since my mind has completely melted via preoccupation with Cooper’s tremors, I thought I’d share some pics of, what I call, the boys’ “extended herd.”
Emmett, Lucas, and Cooper are very lucky to have a lot of dogs they see on a regular basis. Some we pass every morning on our walks, while others are just like family! We consider those dogs part of our extended herd.
Cady, of course, is part of the herd.
Otto is part of the herd, too. Otto is my mom’s dog, and Otto is in charge of Lucas despite his small stature!
And then there’s cousin Lucy, who they don’t get to see enough:
And cousins Tank and Buster, who they see every couple of months:
And there are the dogs we only see on rare occasions like Stanley:
Or Turk or Scout or Louis or Lucy or Bella.
The common denominator in all these pics, of course, is that it’s Lucas playing with all these dogs. If I could have one conversation with Lucas, it would be something like, “Why, oh why, oh why do you love playing with dogs at our house, but you are so scared of dogs everywhere else? Why do you bark and lunge at dogs who walk past our house? But if they come in to play, you’re ready to romp? It makes no sense.”
If only dogs could talk! 🙂
