Canine Resemblance

Yesterday, our giant hundred pound German Shepherd, Schultz, came up to me wanting a little attention.  He stuck his enormous head in my lap and looked at me.  That meant, "pet me."  So I did.

My daughter walked into the room.  "Awww," she said.  "Your baby loves you!"

I looked at the big hairy thing.  And then I looked at my daughter.  "Schultz is not my baby!"

"Yes, he is, Mom."

I shook my head.  "I have no recollection of ever having given birth to this thing!"

My daughter grinned. "But he looks just like you.  He's a hairy cutie-pie!"

  8. HA! Well, ya know, they DO say pets and their owners tend to resemble each other. (I'm glad we don't have snakes!)

    1. So they say. Although I have a hard time believing I look like a German Shepherd!

    1. Yes. They always say, "Where's Mama? Go find the Mama!"

  12. My mom calls her dogs "the children". Now that she lives with her boyfriend and his dog also, it's "our children" (referring to my mom and her boyfriend, not me and her). It's weird.

  13. I have a Shiba Inu, an Italian Greyhound, a chihuahua, and a toy poodle, and frankly, I don't want to know which one looks like me. When it comes to that whole "after a while the dog starts to resemble the owner" thing I feel like there's no winning that battle.

    1. That's quite a mix! Yeah, I'd have to agree, it would be hard to figure out which one you resemble. ;0)

  15. Us parents need to take compliments from the kids when we can get 'em. My wife insists that all the dogs are her babies!

  16. I'm not so great with dogs so I'd be the last person to make any sense of your daughter's observation. But since it's your daughter's, then maybe it's a compliment :)

  17. Hmmm... Mayhaps you will need to update your profile photo?
