Even though Rita doesn’t like sitting and being held, she’s what I consider a lap dog. Chad’s Speck . . not what I consider a lap dog but no one ever told Speck.
Honestly . . that is where that dog thinks he’s supposed to be. If Chad is sitting, Speck wants to be on his lap.
He isn’t allowed on the furniture unless he’s on Chad’s lap so I guess that’s one of the reasons he likes sitting there but really .. who would think a dog that size would be a lap dog?
He is such a sweet dog. He showed up in a store one Friday night and in the little town where they were, animal control only worked weekdays so Chad took him home to keep him safe til Monday. By Monday, Addie “loved” him. That was almost three years ago. You can leave a hamburger, a steak, scrambled eggs . . anything on the table or even drop it on the floor and he will not touch it unless you tell him it’s ok. When Addie was younger, she would take food out of his mouth, mess with his ears .. do everything to that dog and he never once growled or snapped at her. He was so big . . when I first met him and saw how Addie interacted with him, I was scared he would hurt her but he has always been so gentle with her. Such a sweet dog. They tried to find the owners . . they didn’t want a big dog . . but no one ever seemed to be looking for him or trying to find him.
It’s hard not to love a dog with that disposition. Besides, everyone needs a “Speck” in their life! 🙂
