Pet Pride? Lindy lies down on the job

Walking with her daddy is Lindy's favorite thing to do.

While walking in Calgary with her mom, she decided she didn't want to walk any more, so her mom had to sit down to wait for Lindy to get going. It took quite a while, so both had a rest. See her mom's foot?

Walking in Calgary after dark was pretty exciting, Lindy thought, but she still wanted to lie down for a while, even though her mom urged her to hurry up.

Lindy thinks it is her job to take her dad for walks. Sometimes, if her dad isn't available to be walked, she'll take her mom but she says her mom doesn't walk fast enough. Lindy will walk fast, but halfway through the walk, she wants to lie down and rest. In the second picture above, she wanted to lie down for a good long nap, so her mom had to sit down beside her and wait.

Lindy says: "I like to be scratched and tickled, too, Bozo, just like you. I also like to be brushed and combed and petted and patted and, best of all, I like to have my tummy rubbed. My daddy does it best."

Ahhh, Lindy's the leader of the pack?! :)

@ The Chair Speaks: Lindy thinks she is, EJ, and my husband lets her think it.
Also, she's a heavy dog, built low to the ground, too, so if she doesn't want to move, she simply doesn't move, and there's not much I can do about it. LOL

@ Powell River Books
You are SO right, Margy, she's definitely daddy's girl.

it can be exhausting walking humans .. no wonder she needs a nap!

Dogs re so funny! And we who say we own them are also funny, allowing the dog to decide what to do next. I do the same thing!

My granddog is not quite as big as Lindy, but I remember one time when my son had to carry him down a mountain because Mungo decided he just didn't want to walk anymore.
