We have enough people and dogs in the house to give each person their own Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs nickname. I would like to be Grumpy. Isn’t that a good nickname for me? Grumpy Doris.
When I get grumpy, Jeremy (who is Doc), hauls us all out for a walk around the block.
It usually is pretty successful in getting me less grumpy – although not enough to change my name from Grumpy. OK, maybe I could go from Grumpy to Sleepy.
I have been doing some gardening in the back yard and have gotten a little bit of poison ivy. This also makes me grumpy.
But Maxi could also be grumpy because it appears that Boba, the blink cockapoo, is alpha in the house. Maxi spends a bunch of time looking longingly at the doggie bone that Boba has in his mouth. Maxi thinks, “Hey, that used to be my bone. And now it’s not. I’m not sure I like this new situation.”
