It's a Dog's World...

2/01/2011

Sometimes Gorbie really cracks me up. He was sitting like this for about 15 minutes while I was doing my work and I just wonder what was going on in that little doggie brain of his. I sometimes imagine how a conversation with his therapist would go: "Well the other night I buried my bone and for the life of me I can't remember where I put it and I swear this damn bird on the fence was glaring at me and the jerk probably stole it. I'm just feeling out of sorts, you know...I've put on some weight...I mean good God, mom's put on some weight too, don't know what's up with that, but man she's really letting herself go. Also she keeps talking to her stomach, which is odd...and I'm the one paying for a therapist? Give me a break. And then there's Dad...actually he's the one that probably stole my bone and color-coordinated it with the rest of the junk in his closet. Dude spent two hours organizing his ties the other night. Seriously needs a hobby...maybe I should start throwing the ball for him...."

Gorbie's the dog version of a friendly, goofy guy who you don't really take seriously but is secretly brilliant. ...Okay, maybe Gorbie's not BRILliant, per se, but I could see him getting all contemplative now and then :) And, P.S. - that renegade hubby of yours wears TIES?

Rema - he has a rather large collection of ties and Gorbie is not lying about the color-coordination of them or his entire closet. It was quite the production. I was amused to say the least. :)
Angie...glad I could make you smile, hope all is well!

This made me laugh out loud because I can picture perfectly in my head Matt organizing his ties by color and wanting to make everything organized by color including Gorbie's bone. HA! Love it!
