Baby and the $30,000 Baseball Cap 15 of 31

My husband is besotted with Baby.  She really is a love able scamp.  Though there is a special connection between Dan and her.  Like many Labs - Baby was a chewer.  I wrote about Baby's First Cap back in 2010.

I think what amazes me about Baby's love affair with Dan is the fact that she doesn't like males.  The day after she came home with us a friend stopped to visit.  Dean is a dog person and she wasn't going to let him in the door.  We have pieced together that someone must have abused her before she came to live with us.  Her fear of men makes the story of her love for my husband all the sweeter.

I digress.  Dan jokes that last year he bought a $30,000 baseball cap and they threw the 2012 Tundra in for free.  That is a story for another day.

The first thing Dan did when we got home was show Baby his new white cap.  He sat on the couch in front of her and carefully showed her the cap.  Explaining how nice it was and that she would get to ride in the Tundra.

The whole time he was talking she sat and looked at him and the cap he held in his hands - and literally licked her chops.

When he got done talking to her, I told him you better keep that cap up, because she already told you she is looking forward to chewing it up.

"Oh no.  She won't eat it.  She's a good girl, just sometimes she can't help herself."

  1. We have a precious schnoodle who is the perfect dog, except...he eats his bed. Any thing resembling a blanket or towel gets chewed to smitherins. I can't stand that he just lay in the kennel cold hard floor, so I give him old towels to snuggle with and eat. Whatcha' gonna do?

  2. What a clear picture. I could even hear the sound of Baby licking those chops. And I love the last line: She's a good girl, just sometimes she can't help herself!

  4. Just went and read some of the other Baby stories! Too, too, too funny! The plastic funnel thing. And the slippers! And you and your husband playing good cop/bad cop! I am laughing so hard I am crying! Three of my last four dogs have been labs or lab mixes! Totally loving and totally loveable! Also totally shameless!

  5. She has been lots of fun to write about. Even if at times I was very frustrated. Just couldn't decide if I was more frustrated with her or my husband.
