Do eccentric people have eccentric dogs?

I don't know what it is with me - every dog I own, gets extremely attached to me. They think I've given birth to them. I am the Mommy. 

Daisey Mae, is getting like that with me. She follows me around or has to know where I am. When I go to the bathroom, she sits outside the door. If I am in the bathroom, when she comes into the house, she will sniff under the door, to see if I am in there. Strange to hear, sniffing under the door.

When I am on my laptop, she sits nearby me, looking at me, with adoring eyes.

She sleeps in my room. She goes to bed when I go to bed. I feed her twice a day but sometimes, another family member will. She watches me cook. She loves to go "bye-bye" in the car with me. She loves to sit out in the backyard with me. When I come in, she comes in. She cries when she greets me.

When I leave the house, and she is alone - she will sit on the back of the sofa, which is in front of the living room window, (like a cat or small dog would) and wait till I come home. It's the funniest looking thing - this big German Shepherd mix, sitting on the back of the sofa.  I am content that, there is no funny business going on outside my house, when she sits there, waiting for me to come home.

Last week, I left her for a couple of hours and when I came home, she had attacked the Kleenex box, ripping the tissue into shreds. She had a guilty look on her face. Yesterday was gross. I was gone for about an hour and when we came home, she had dug in the kitty litter box in the bathroom.

I think she is acting out - Separation anxiety. German Shepherds are known to do this.

Today, she had a babysitter! Char came in and sat with her, while I was away.

Now that's not eccentric is it? Everyone has babysitters for their big dogs, right???


  1. My dogs have had babysitters at times. It doesn't seem eccentric to me.


    1. I feel much better now!

    1. sounds like a good idea

    2. I know quite a few people who send their dogs to day care.


Comments are good - I admit, sometimes I don't respond back, in time for a dialog. I bad! I will TRY and do better. Thanks for understanding.
