My mom calls me her shadow. I go EVERYWHERE she goes. The only time I don’t get up to follow her around is if I’m being lazy laying in her bed, which usually I still make the effort to get up and see what she is doing and make sure she is ok. I am just trying to watch out for her and make sure she doesn’t get into any trouble. You never know what humans will get into.
Here is a picture of me while mom is doing the dishes. Sitting on the rug right next to her, never know what could happen. “Are you done yet?, This is taking forever”. She made it through safe though, because I was there to protect her, of course.
In the morning I lay on the end of the bed and watch my mom while she gets ready. Then I follow her upstairs where she and I eat breakfast together. She lets me outside and I roam in the yard for awhile, making frequent trips back to the top deck to make sure she is still there. Soon mom leaves for work but when she gets home I great her with instant excitement and wiggly butt tail wags. For the rest of the night it’s pretty much whatever she wants to do, I sit with her on the couch while she is on her computer, I follow her up and down the stairs while she is doing laundry, and she comes with me for a walk (which I protect her from other humans and strange dogs that walk by). When supper comes around I sit on this same rug while mom cooks, but sometimes she makes me go lay on my bed, apparently she doesn’t enjoy me trying to get a bite to eat in-between watching out for her every move. Mom feeds me when they eat, but if they step foot out of the kitchen you can be sure I will be right behind.
When we go for walks, for some reason, Mom likes to use the leash, she worries about me I guess. Even though there is no reason, I walk just far enough ahead where I can explore but keep an eye on my mom and dad to make sure they stay out of trouble.
I have earned the nickname “My Shadow”, but I won’t complain. Every second I spend with my humans is pretty amazing and well worth it.
