That’s why there are chewed up gloves, tissue paper, socks, pieces of firewood and other sundry items strewn around our trailer. I have donated many articles for Saint Dominic’s edification. We definitely know we have a dog.
They called him Dom at the SPCA. We call him Dominic. He’s an Italian Catholic Saint Dog.
And wow! Dominic can move! Why our next door neighbour said after he ran past her house that he was running so fast that she thought he was a black poodle. He’s actually a terrier cross and may have some border collie in him with a pinch of retriever.
When you try to take something, like a good sock, away from him he doesn’t discriminate between the cloth and your hand. We are modifying this behaviour as we re-stock our first aid kit.
He is a great jumper and likes to jump up and kiss or occasionally nip at your face. We are modifying.
Dominic and Sue are now having many pleasurable walks together as we begin to modify his behaviour. He used to not want to walk with Sue because he didn’t want to leave me.
One day I mailed a letter just before Sue took Dominic out. When I got to the end of our lane I hid in the woods. I stood behind a big birch tree and peeked at the road. I saw Sue and Dominic walk by. Dominic thought I was ahead of them and when they were gone I walked back to the trailer. Dominic is not part blood hound.
What we do for Dominic!
As you can tell, we are in the modifying business. However he is one sweet little dog and when I sit outside he immediately jumps up on the chair beside me and my buddy and I enjoy the time together. He’ll sometimes lean against me, turn his head, look up at me and give me a kiss.
