A dog story from the Log Cabin

Somewhere out of the log cabin....





...down a wooded winter road....





....a man tries to walk his spoiled Bernese Mountain Dog.





The "offender" in question, who shall remain anonymous, has decided to test the man and show him who's boss.




Little does the man know, the "offender" doesn't do this with mommy!

my female always wants to put the leash in her mouth and walk herself!

Darla said...

That is too funny...my kids push their dad a lot more than they do me!!! I hope you are doing well, haven't chatted with you in quite a while..

Dar said...

Your Bernese is Beautiful...what is his name? Thanks for visiting me. My profile is of our 'Creekside Retreat', the 'Hunting Shack', 'Home Away From Home', 'The Get-Away',depending on our mood at the time....I will have to post more pics of it...it's small but we love it. I still 'dream' it becomes our home at retirement.
Blessings and Come again

What happened to the puppy you had?
Ha!
We've never had a dog that walked good-even after obedience training. So I know it's all in the trainer. my fault.

There is a blog imaginechildhood and in it there is a section of "Barn Stories" - mostly about a now-teenage foal... written the same way, with photos and short descriptions - love them both!

She is just too flippin' cute! But I do kinda feel sorry for Greg on this one . . . (hehehe)
HUGZ!!!

Just a little something from Judy said...

I love how you can take outstanding photographs and daily happenings and make them into fun and interesting stories. Really you could illustrate and write children's story books. I just cannot believe how much Scout has grown. You must be treating him well. The snow at the cabin is beautiful!

In answer to your question regarding your email...I did receive it and I will respond. I look forward to the meeting.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Holy Cow... That is Scout????? What are you feeding that dog????? I cannot believe how big Scout is now.

Poor Greg.... He'd probably rather you take Scout for a walk anyhow. ha...

Hope you are doing fine. I miss hearing from you --but understand how busy you are. How's school????

Hugs,
Betsy

Carol said...

Cute story! Scout is so big, is his fully grown yet?

Smiles,
Carol

Debbie said...

I have to laugh because it is the same way here. I can take Sasha out and she listens to me so well but if Wendell does, he usually has to come and get me. *laughing* At night she will hope up on the bed and sleep with me till he comes to bed and he gets upset when she growls at him to make her move.

Whoever said the dog was mans best friend was wrong.... dog is womans!

Stay warm,
Debbie

The Retired One said...

Hahahaaaaaaa...
she took HIM for a walk, didn't she?

They are such little smart devils, aren't they?

She knew you needed a break from the books too and wanted to get you out in the fresh air, I am sure!

Dawn said...

i just can't get over how big scout is! i know the winter is cold... but it sure is beautiful!

grammy said...

big Giant Puppy. They can be a handful at that age :o)
Still looks plenty wintry around there. We have had a few melts and warm ups here...this morning there was new snow. Frankly I am tired of it.

Our Giant Puppy Granddog is having a training session and I got to watch the guy. It was very neat. I am a little tired of her eating my shoes while I am still in them (o:

dj said...

Catherine Holman said...

Busy Bee Suz said...

That is so funny. This is what Cocoa does to ME, but not the husband!!!
So, you are the alpha male of the house? I won't tell Greg. :0

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Lavender Hill Studio said...

LOL!! Scout knows who is in charge doesn't she? Great pictures Shelley!
Hugs,
Penny

joated said...

"Spoiled Bernese Mountain Dog" heh? I wonder how Scout got that way...Mom?

(Or has Greg always been easily out maneuvered by women?)

Pony Girl said...

That is cute!! Beautiful pictures in the snow. I love Bernese Mountain dogs, they have such personality and gentle souls!

Cassie said...

She is really growing up isn't she? Of course you know that all little girls get away with mischief with their daddys!

BabyRocketDog walks at a perfect heel with me but rarely stays at Pat's side when he walks her. 'Nuff said.

Constance said...

That's pretty cute! Dogs really do have a "pack" mentality don't they?

Our daughter and her family have a 100+ pound Weimeriemer (sp?) named ZEUS. In the last couple of months he has licked a hole in their carpet. Come to find out, the dog trainer told them it was a stress issue. He began licking around the time that our youngest moved in with them (Charlie goes to the college about 5 minutes from their house). ZEUS is apparently stressed about where he and Charlie fit in, as far as the "pack" goes. He doesn't know if he is his buddy (they're always playing and wrestling) or if he is in authority over him.

Who would've thought?

You need to write a children's book! And Scout could be the star. She has gotten so big but is still adorable!

Daisy said...

HAHA! Dogs are so funny. They all have their little quirks, don't they. Scout has grown so fast! Oh my! Have a good weekend, Shelley. :D

Sharon said...

Thata girl Scout. You show them who is boss! Scout if things get to tough back there I am still here waiting for you. Hi Shelley!!!!

Blessedmom's Simple Home said...

I just love your dog, That last photo is just priceless.

Rural Rambler said...

Shelley! Scout, she is HUGE! But she is melt your heart darling :)

Jeanette said...

Aww pretty dog! Love the way his dark fur contrasts with the white snow!

Tricia said...

Ha Ha Ha! Great big smiles & laughs at this story!

LifesAdance said...

these little fur kids are so so spoiled. i cant even walk our bulldog on a leash anymore, he just stops, turns his head and takes the collar and leash off. HE wants no part of the indignity of being tethered.
I've often thought to write to Ceaser Millan to ask what part of pack behavior is stamping the back paw and whining. I don't think I've ever seen that in the nature films about wolves :-)

be well!

JyLnC said...

That is so cute. I take it Scout has a favorite?

SandyVTW said...
