PET PARENT #EXTRAORDINAIRE

Of all the toys in all the land, this is the one Jax claims as “grand ”…

He plays all day and into the night, to see him without it can be an odd sight!

It squeaks, it squawks – it can work your last nerve, when it turns up missing – it’s an answered prayer served.

I am not proud, I must confess, how I pretend to ignore his distress.

But then here he comes – the one who cares, that’s why I call him…

    Love it! We certainly have one or two around here!

      It’s nice to have them isn’t it?

    Oh yeah! Cathy I’m feeling you about that toy you just don’t want to find because it can work your last nerve sometimes

      Ain’ it a pain in the butt Yvonne? So frustrating, I just try and ignore him after a while #notproud

    Wow and a very strong Pet Parent Extraordinaire at that! Can’t imagine lifting the sofa like that!

      I know right? I was impressed too Taryn. He’s a keeper!

      See, I knew it was some sort of canine conspiracy! LOL

  • Elaine

    That’s love and one awesome pet parent, especially to help retrieve the squeakiest toy in the house. On those occasions when I’m a little stressed out or tired and Haley grabs one of those noisy toys, I take my frustration out on the toy myself and squeak it loud for her, lol!

    • Cathy Bennett
      September 30, 2015

      Hey, I’ve got to try that one Elaine. Thanks for the stress release tip!

    I’m pretty sure that’s me at our house. I feed her, walk her, shop for her food.. And I’m the one who has to get down on hands and knees and root around under the couch and coffee table every her ball goes under there (seemingly pushed there on purpose!). But in the hubs defense, he has bad knees so no crawling around for him! And our sofa’s too heavy for you PPE’s technique!

    • Cathy Bennett
      September 30, 2015

      Trust me, Jackie I was super surprised to see him do his Superman thing and lift the entire freaking couch. But when it comes to the boys there’s nothing he won’t do!

      Thanks Jenna. I wish the photo was crisper but I really need a new smart phone!

    Our furniture is too low to the ground for stuff to go under, so it rarely happens. It would be an awesome feature to have in the house, though.

  • Earl Lover
    September 30, 2015

    Yep… this is familiar in our household. Balls always getting lodged under the furniture after some pup pushed it under.

    • Cathy Bennett
      September 30, 2015

      Sometimes I think he does it because he wants us to play with him. It’s a game they play – hide the toy and watch the human get it back LOL

  • Melissa & Mudpie

    What a great dad!!!

    • Cathy Bennett
      September 30, 2015

      Yes Melissa – that he is. He’s got the patience of ten humans when it comes to Jax. Trust me, we need it too!

      Thanks Nicole!

    Yep. Isis had a squeaky Milk Bone toy she adored. I tried hiding it once, and she gave me the most pathetic look. Where did it go? She had a whole toy box to choose from and I could see her looking for the Milk Bone. I finally gave in and pulled it out from where I was hiding it in the couch.

    • Cathy Bennett
      September 30, 2015

      Yep Kari – we’re all suckers like that 🙂 I can even get sucked in and stop what I’m doing to “save the day” Lee is generally the one who gives in first LOL So I’m grateful to have him. So are the Boys!

    I love when a dog has a favorite toy. Over the years I’ve had dogs who carried their favorite ball on walks.

    • Cathy Bennett
      September 30, 2015

      I know what you mean Sharon – remember my stories about Leo and his favorite ball “Wilson?” I too love how they get so attached. It’s too cute

  • M. K. Clinton

    Yes, Doggie Daddy is constantly retrieving balls from under things. Pierre will sit and whine as if he has lost his best friend. I need to find one of those balls. It is Murphy’s favorite too. They must be very special.

    • Cathy Bennett
      September 30, 2015

      Girlfriend, I just don’t have the patience. It’s as if Jax deliberately pushes it under furniture to watch us fetch it for him. God bless Lee or Jax would be in tons of trouble – HA! He’d be waiting all day #poorthing

  • Robin

    That is so sweet of your husband! Those favorite toys are so important! I bet Jax was thrilled. My husband is pretty awesome with my kitties. He loves cats as much as I do. He even misses it when Manna doesn’t curl up to him at night.

    • Cathy Bennett
      September 30, 2015

      I can tell your hubby loves the cats! They are too much – I love reading their blog posts!

  • Spencer the Goldendoodle

    I love to play that game, hit the ball and watch the humans pick up the couch!!! 😉

    • Cathy Bennett
      September 30, 2015

      Must run in the family Spencer!

  • Suzanne Dean

    You just gotta find the squeaky, no matter what. It’s nice when someone can lift the couch so you can look under it.

    Paws & Wags,
    Mary (Mom’s resting today so I filling in) and I know what it’s like to loose a squeaky

    • Cathy Bennett
      September 30, 2015

      I’m finding out that the squeaky toys are the best and most homes with pets have a pet parent extraordinaire. That’s nice to know! 🙂

    Yes – I love your clever post! I actually have a nubby blue bone of the same color!

    WOOF WOOF!

      Thanks Piranha, PAWhaps blue is the magic color.

      That’s cool – one per household is sufficient

    the pet parent extraordinaire in our home, is my hubby. if either doggie needs anything, he is at their beck and call. he is absolutely wonderful with them. especially with bailey, and even more so after her accident.

      I’m sensing most “dads’ area fitting that category. We’re all blessed 🙂

  • Monika & Sam

    Aw…Jax’s hero no doubt. How adorably sweet! Now if he dusts while moving the furniture, hang on to that one! 😉

    • Cathy Bennett
      October 1, 2015

      HA! That’s a good one! I should have grabbed my swift-it broom now that I think about it.

    Scout has a few toys that he loves, but one toy he’s had since he was a puppy and we call it his Bubby. He gets to play with it before he goes to sleep. Mostly he just sits with it. So funny.

    • Cathy Bennett

      A-mazing how dogs gravitate to one or two items in their lives. I haven’t named the blue ball yet – guess I will have to soon.
