Do dogs have a human preference? I mean do dogs prefer one human over the other?
HERE’S WHY I ASK –
I stood in the doorway of our room as Doodle Dad removed his clothes from his suitcase.
The Boys were each playing with a toy by the foot of the bed. I smiled as I said to him
while you were gone the Boys really missed you…
His expression was one of disbelief. 🙁
Come to find out – Doodle Dad is under some misguided impression that his periodic absences go unnoticed since he’s not their “primary” doodlegiver.
Daily doodle duty is my gig. Not because he wouldn’t – but because I
prefer want to do it –
- Walks – that’s my “me” time my meditation time. I do a great deal of reflection, praying and planning during our walks. #Iliveforit
- Meals – like cooking for my family, I know who likes what and how they like it. ex. more pumpkin for Jax, less Omega 3 oil for Harley, egg whites only for Harley, double yolk for Jax but leave it in large chunks… #weirdIknow
- Grooming – different brushes and combs for different doodles and different body parts. It’s one of those things that I know instinctively and we’ve got this rhythm thing going on #dancingpartners
I believe that dogs love us like family.
They relay of us for affection, protection and everything in between. BarkPost
And like family – their love for each of us differs. But it’s true love non the same…
I read an interesting article asking “Do Dogs Like Women Best?” #notgoingthere
But some statements I totally agreed with.
Doodle Dad’s quick to tell me how the Boys are restless and mopey when I’m away.
I SEE SIMILAR BEHAVIOR –
When he’s away – they hang out by the door looking for the car to return…
We have those days where we alter our routine to accommodate the mood swings #Ismelldad
Even though I do my best to keep them engaged in activities…
…they still have their “where’s Doodle Dad” moments…
So I had to chuckle as I remembered what my “Nana” used to say –
Be careful what you ask for – you just might get it
Doodle Dad had plenty of company the rest of the day watching the game…
