It's National Dog Day!

Nadia aka "The 8 pound Naughty Dog"

Nadia has now been my fur baby for 15 months!  There isn't much I enjoy more than her falling asleep and snuggling with me.

In many ways she is like a two year old.  She understands a lot, but only expressing through behaviors, whining, barking, and growling; only two year olds cry, whine, and say a few words.  She absolutely loves going to the dog park.  In fact I can't tell her where we are going when we go, otherwise she'll whine the entire ride there.  Once there she tries to scratch her way through the window because I apparently am not quick enough at getting her out of the Jeep.

I can jump!

In the evening, starting between 8:30 and 9:00 p.m. Nadia starts nipping at my feet.  She runs around wildly, barking, and attempting to get me off of the chair (most likely I am studying).  This is her wind up before she falls asleep.  It is also her way of telling me- "It's time for me to go to bed and you should go too!"

She has brought joy, happiness, and laughter into my life.  Her quirky ways have left an paw print on my heart.
