Who’s in charge? Five Photos/Five Stories 2

Copper boy

Copper, “It’s all about me”
Lauren (mom), “You’re absolutely right!”

If you’re a dog owner you’ll relate to your pup wanting to be fed, eager to fetch, ready for walking, longing for his/her belly rubbed, anxious to play and cuddle, i.e. it’s all about them! It’s up to us, their owners, to provide the best, loving home so they feel safe and secure. 

However, when you flip the coin, our time with them is more about us because all they want is to please their owners; to make their families happy. They look at us with those eyes that melt our hearts from the first meeting and there’s no turning back.  They can sense our moods and they have our backs.

I’ll use one example using my dog, Copper, when he hears any of his family crying. He’ll walk over to us, rest his head on our leg and look up with his amber eyes as if to say, “I’m here for you.”

Their unconditional love is a gift to be cherished.  If you’re a dog or cat owner, I’d love to hear your thoughts, too. ♥

I would like to thank Jean at https://socialbridge.wordpress.com/ for tagging me in this photo challenge.

Here are the rules for the “Five Photos Five Stories” challenge: “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge.
(I’m unable to post each day so mine are days apart, which is alright if posting each day is difficult for you, too.)

My second nomination for the challenge is Scott over at http://worldiction.com/.

Not again and then some!

     Do you have a family member or friend who is constantly taking photos? Do you have moments when you just don’t want to be the subject? I do, I have and I’ve been the guilty one clicking away.
     Copper’s been in our family for over three years now and I think we’ve taken about a million photos of him (slight exaggeration). But for those of you who own pets, don’t you agree there can never be too many pictures of our furry friends?
     I took the first three when he had better things to do (like chew on his bone). However, he complied but not without attitude. 🙂 He weighs about 74 lbs, is tall and lean and all muscle, which is why this first photo makes me smile. In the photos following, you’ll see his true self.

Just a little

“Time’s almost up”

No more

“I’m done!”

Happy 1 Year Adoption Anniversary, Copper ♥ Limerick

Copper has been a great addition to our family
and it took less than minutes for him to melt our hearts.
He’s strong and has tested us, but he is so loving,
that we’re still amazed at how he acts and the things he does.

There once was a strong chocolate lab
his loving ways were simply fab
His color was unique
here are photos for a peek
his personality was far from drab

007

He loves chewing on his nylabones
and they’re the strongest to endure his choppers!

006
One of his favorite pastimes, besides watching squirrels
in the tree-house, is sunbathing!

Copper’s 2nd Birthday Limerick Trilogy ♥

I.

There once was a dog named Copper
He had pearly whites in his chopper
but harmless was he
Wouldn’t harm a bee
His eyes were big heart stoppers

II.

Six months ago, we brought him home
and watched him while he roamed
He sniffed around
without a sound
then laid down with his bone

III.

His new home is his comfort zone
You wouldn’t believe how he’s grown
More like a horse
threw us off course
but how would we have known?


We’re very lucky to have adopted another wonderful dog.
Copper is a great addition to our family and
he’s a big lovable baby!

These are first attempts at writing limericks.
I hope you enjoyed.  They’re fun, but challenging.
🙂
