The only downside for Bella is that I sometimes can't contain myself. I sometimes pick her up just to hear that unevitable heave of sigh. I hug her just to get the exact same reaction. Yeah, Bella's not the cuddly little lapdog type. That's perfectly fine with me.
Then sometimes I take a step further. Not always intentionally. The other day was one of those days where my poor Border Terrier got more than she bargained for when me and son found a ribbon. It was an innocent enough idea putting it on. We didn't expect the huge reaction we got!
Going away, throwing herself down and 'yawning' - "What is this torture decvie??"
"I've lost a piece of my soul"
Waiting and hoping
"I only look like I'm fine with this since this is my blind side."
"I really hate my life right now"
"I'm going to lie here in a bad mood until this horrible thing has been removed"
I removed the ribbon after taking these photos, I don't really enjoy making her get this upset unless I really need to. But her huge expressions do put a smile on my face, when it's over something as harmless as a ribbon.
