The Big White Dog

Did you ever see eyes that were any more loving than hers?  We still do not know her name, but we enjoy watching her.  And occasionally go across and pet her.  Lots of times our regular mailman goes out of his way to go back and talk to her and pet her.  Also, one of the subs that helps him goes our of her way to give her a pet.  IF she is outside.

And she is an inside dog, most times is well groomed, but how the lady keeps her that way is more than I know.  She will get out and dig in 'her areas'....not all over the yard.  She favors 3 places that I know of.  And if it is wet and rainy, she will be just brown with mud...so brown you would not know she was a white dog.  Then the next time I see her, she will be back sparkling white.

She is so much fun to watch.  There are big, huge cottonwood trees along the sidewalk right outside her fence.  There are squirrels in those trees.  At least one of them loves to tease her.  It runs down the tree to where she can see it.  She runs barking towards the tree.  The squirrel runs around the tree out of sight for just a few seconds, then goes back around to where it can be seen by White Dog, once again provoking her.

If a bird gets in her yard, she chases it out.  If anyone/anything moves in the neighborhood, she barks if she is outside.  Just totally loves watching the world go by.   They have a small child's pool for her like we had for Lorelei...they run water in it every now and then and she just loves it.  She will run and jump in, then out and run, then jump back in.  Just total joy.

Squirrels DO like to harass dogs....but I do think it's all in fun! Lovely dog.

She is a beauty. They seem like such gentle giants. My brother use to own a black one but she passed away earlier this spring.
