Faith's Sense Of Right And Wrong

Faith has lived with me since she was six weeks old and I've taught her the basic commands and things to do and not to do. 

She has a strong sense of right and wrong. Sneaking up on the couch is probably the only sneaky thing she ever does. 

Now, I don't care if she's on the couch. My house has long since gone to the dogs, so it doesn't matter. I don't scold her or tell her to get down.

But Faith clearly thinks it matters. Yes, she sneaks up there, but is very upset if she gets "caught."  

I think this is because I may have minded when she was a puppy and told her to get down from the couch back in 2014. 

I took her picture and woke her up. Her tail started its guilty wagging, very fast, and sort of crooked. I know that wag, it only happens when she feels she's done something wrong

Just look at her eyes...


 I'm sorry I haven't visited your blogs this week, but so many exciting things are happening. My head is spinning and I'm exhausted in a good way. So while I could have found the time, I couldn't focus my brain. 

I will tell you all about it next week. 

Also, thank you for all the lovely birthday greetings for Samson. Joyce came over with ice cream for both of them. It was a wonderful day, celebrating Samson and opening new doors for me.

I will tell you all about it next week.  I know I've said it twice, so it must be true. 

It will be true.
