A boy and his dog.......

For Christmas Dusty got me a puppy, a mini wiener dog. His name is Sparky or as the kids started calling him "Sparky with the broken paw". He has never had a broken paw but that is what they call him. I on the other hand call him "Damn it Sparky" as that is all I seem to say when referring to this now not so puppyish dog.
He has eating shoes, steals things and hides them under the couch, cries like a baby if he can't see me and thinks Dusty's side of the bed is his. (we are breaking him to sleep on the floor with his blanket).
Before the surprise of our youngest Chase, Dusty and I where done having kids having become parent of 8 children we felt our family of Yours, Mine and Ours was more than complete.....But Chase had other plans and no matter what the Doctor in the past had said nothing was going to stop him from coming here to be with our family. After Chase was born we made SURE we were done this time.....I was after all 40....

Now however I have this dog that is by far worse than any spoiled brat child I have ever seen. He has been on my last nerve for a few weeks now with the 2 year old type messes he can and do make.
Then I see him with Chase......

When Chase wakes up the dog greets him with a million kisses and his tail is going so fast that his butt can't keep up.
The minute I walk in the door from school with Chase the dog goes nuts.
He allows Chase to do just about anything to him without so much as a nip. He just licks the boys face off.
Chase drags the poor dog everywhere, lays on him puts him on the laundry basket and pushes him threw the house. Sparky ever rides in Chases dump truck with a look in his eyes like "Dear God not again". He even allows Chase to put doll hats on him and looks at Chase as to say "This is what I am here for" but the other night I had no idea how close they really are and how much this dog cares for HIS boy.....

Chase was playing outside with the older kids and Sparky while I was washing dinner dishes. Dusty was out of town and when he is gone Sparky is edgy about strangers coming to the house. He is fine when Dusty is home.
A man from our Church stops in to check in on us. He got out of his car and Sparky runs right over and sits on Chases feet and watches the man go to the door. He barks a few times but nothing more than that. The friend goes to leave our front door and bends down to pick Chase up and the Sparky attack dog goes NUTS and gets ahold of his pants and drags him until he puts Chase down the chases after him until he gets in his car. Then Sparky ran back to Chase licked his face and did not leave his side until the man left...
I felt so bad that I called his wife and told her how sorry I was. But in the back of my mind I was thinking, No one will ever get to far with Chase as long as Sparky is around.....Sparky will now be on a leash even in the yard from now on at least until the big gate for our yard go in next week.
Sparky also lets the kids know if Chase is doing things outside he should not be doing.......

I guess we will keep Poor Sparky with the broken paw....



Okay I do love the fact he loves me so much too....

Way to go Sparky! Aren't dogs great? He is just like a modern day Spartacus protecting his side kick "Gladiator Chasecious" from the evil Romans (Mormons)

We probably would have kept our dog if Gabi was at all interested. She was doing the same things yours is doing, only Gabi was just as disgusted with her as we were.

What a wonderful bond between Sparky and Chase. I loved the pictue of the two. Sparky will grow out of his puppy "mishaps" so hang in there. My DH keeps talking about another puppy, with one large lab and my two boys I think I'm maxed out right now with picking up after them all. I hope you family is all doing well. Congrats on your expected granddaughter.
