Today as mom pulled the shower curtain aside and looked down there i was. I had mushed up the bathmat to create a pillow and was curdled up lying in front to the tub.

The tile floor was cold so I made myself
 comfortable on the bathmat.
I looked up when the water stopped to see what was happening.  As soon as mom started to get out of the tub I wanted out.  There is no way I'm hanging around in case she decides to give me a bath.

Oh, you're finished.

Then I got to thinking about how much I follow her like a shadow and how much she's alone.

Think about it.  Where does mom go with out you when you're in the house?

As soon as she goes into the kitchen, I'm there.  After all what happens if something drops. Who's going to clean it up?  Maybe she'll give me a cookie.

I'm there on the sofa or chair when she goes into the living room.  And if she steps out, I shift into the spot where she was sitting.  If she's gone too long, well then, I have to look for her.  I can't leave her alone.

Oops, when she goes into the bathroom, I'm right there.  If she makes a move toward the tub, I scoot outside looking in.

I mushed up my pillow.
After my evening walk I know it's time to go to bed.  And there I am cuddled on the pillow on my half of the bed, waiting.

Falling asleep.

Since I can see the door to the kitchen from my spot on the bed, I don't always follow her if he goes into the kitchen.  But, if she's gone too long I know something's up and go to her.  Maybe she'll give me a cookie.

Only once in a while does she almost trip over me because I'm too close and she doesn't know I'm there.

That's about it for my house.  We only have a 1 bedroom apartment so there is no where else she can go.

How do you follow your family around?
Where are they allowed to go without you?

  1. Jen never goes anywhere alone in our house.... especially the kitchen!

  2. I would follow my Mom everywhere but she has a babygate in the kitchen cause that is where she feeds my kitty brother. She also has part of the condo baby gated so that I won't eat his litter or cat toys.
    Barks and licks and love, Dakota

    1. poor baby. I can understand her not wanting you to get into the cats litter and you would probably eat the cat's food.

  3. My dogs are convinced that if I ever got out of their sight, I would just vanish. And they are sure there is a back door in the bathroom.

    1. I've had cats or a dog since 1972. I don't think I've ever gone into the bathroom alone. If I ever closed the door they would scratch at it. I guess that's why we have dogs and cats, so we'll never be alone..

  4. Delilah is a lot like you BJ, there are very few places I can go without her.

    1. At least I know I'm not the only one.

  5. Hi Lynda!

    It's me again, Tammy the Marketing Coordinator at The Uncommon Dog. We just finished another informative info-graphic that I thought you might be interested in. It's titled "How Dogs Became Our Best Friends!".

    If you love dogs, like we do, then you'll love this story. Recent scientific breakthroughs have increased our understanding about how dogs have come to play such an integral part of our daily lives. This fun and engaging info-graphic tells that story in a way that we hope makes it accessible and interesting to everyone.

    If you would like to share this info-graphic with your readers, please feel free to do so. You can find the info-graphic here: Again, all we ask in return is that you link back to, in some way, from your post.

    Also, definitely let me know if you do decide to post it because we'd be happy to spread the word again about the blog post by linking to it from our Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ pages.
