Episode 6

(an overheard conversation the other night at dinner with friends. Delicious lasagna; Garfield would have had a field day)

"Don't tease her, tease, tease... You hide the ball above the TV and claim that she's watching the Red Sox; you hide it under a napkin while everyone is engaged in talk waiting for the apple crisp; you hide the yellow ball under your shoe, rolling it back and forth, and when questioned about it you say, Oh, I didn't know it was there. Tease, tease, tease."

When he leaves the room, she says, "You know what? Annie follows him around the house constantly seeking his attention. He would never tell you that. You know what? He teases, but deep down inside he really loves that dog."

This fellow has never been an animal lover, ever, as I remember. He is soooo lucky! Annie is a BEAUTY!

  2. Here's my theory, it's akin to 'do bears sh*t in the woods" or "does a falling tree in the woods make a noise if there's no one around to hear it".........I wonder, would he be doing all this if none of us were around to witness it??? I think (he thinks) he's entertaining US as well as that sweet pup.
    I must admit, she is the sweetest dog I've ever met.
    (and it was outstanding lasagne!! Annie's mom is an excellent cook.)

  3. An interesting (and funny) story. To understand it fully one has to be an animal not-lover as, sadly and ashamedly, I am. (But I would like to hide that ball...)

  4. Well, my theory is that he DOES love that dog and would be very upset if she stopped following him around. Another overheard comment, "Annie, did you take cute lessons somewhere?". She is pretty darned adorable!!

  6. Nice story and interesting contributions from some of the other dinner companions. I feel like I was quietly sitting there observing all of you, while petting this wonderful dog.

  8. Annie is a cutie and obviously very patient to tolerate all the teasing! She probably loves it!
