Doggy Tale

I've noticed a trend. In the evenings when I unlace my boots and get comfortable on the couch to read a book or watch a good mystery DVD (Inspector George Gently is my current favorite), Misty snuggles down against my boots. If I've been wearing sandals that day, she positions her body across the sandals and somehow gets comfy.

Why am I puzzled about this? Oddly enough, no one else is that eager to get that close to my shoes. 

Right now, as I'm sitting at the kitchen counter writing this, Misty is lying just in front of my feet. She stays so close by, that I always have to be careful not to step on her!

So what's with the shoe thing? Is it because Misty feels more secure when snuggling close to my shoes? OR is it because she knows that I always first put on my shoes before going outdoors - and she wants to be READY? Yeah! yeah! ready! ready! pant, pant!

Because we got Misty from a shelter, we're not certain of her history.

So is it insecurity or anticipation? or could it be the lovely fragrance? :-)
What do you think?

Sweet post. And I love the sheep pic with Psalm 100:3. Stopping by from NFF

With our dog, I suspect it's the odors as she dearly loves all other odors, too! Misty looks like such a sweetie :)

This reminds me of:

I imagine Misty sounding like this in her head. :D

Hope you have a great day! My back and hip are out, which I know you can appreciate, so I am nursing them after two chiropractic adjustments, hoping I don't need another. EE's just dying to check out to see what they have today, so I better get out of the way.

Lots of Love from all of us!

CUTE!!!! Our bulldog is always near our feet...each time one of us is ready to get up from our recliner, we ask the other one if the dog's under our chair so he won't get squished, lol!

Aw, Misty! You're so cute! *pat pat*

I think it is love for her owner :) or maybe the fragrance too ;)

Of course! They smell like you! My dogs curl up with anything that smell like me or the hubs. Isn't it sweet?

Lots of yummy love,
