zorro by not_a_painter
hoto meme from cdeacon and thegrrl2002

Meme guidelines and reasoning:
1. Stop talking about politics for a moment or two.
2. Post a reasonably-sized picture in your LJ, NOT under a cut tag, of something pleasant, such as an adorable kitten, or a fluffy white cloud, or a bottle of booze. Something that has NOTHING TO DO WITH POLITICS.
3. Include these instructions, and share the love.

These are my parents dogs. Molly the boxer and Scooter the maltese-cross-silky terrier. Best friends, despite (on in spite) of the height difference. The only problem is Scoot thinks she's the big dog, and Molly thinks she's the size of Scooter. Ever had a boxer try to sit on your lap?

AWWWW! I have *always*, always wanted a boxer. I love them so desperately. I have a fondness for wrinkled-face dogs. : )

Boxers are the bestest. Well, Molly is. She's incredibly friendly (too much so in some respects. I have bruises from her excitment at seeing me after me not going back home for 18 months.), and all that extra skin on her face results in some great facial expressions from her :g: She does snore though, and sound like an 80 year old man when it's humid.

Before they got Scooter to keep her company, Dad used to exercise her by taking out to a farm he knows, letting her out and driving slowly away. She'd chase him for a couple of miles before she finally had enough. She's all heart and muscle.

Molly looks to be a big girl even for a boxer. What is it about big dogs being unable to recognise their own size? I was once a cushion for the biggest black lab. She was a lovely girl too but by god she was big! Unfortunately, she shared the house with three cats and was convinced she was a cat too.

A lab thinking it was a cat? Now that's a worry! I'm thinking on all those times I woke with a cat draped over my neck in the middle of the night. I'm impressed by your survival skills.

Speaking of large animals thinking that they're small ones, the funniest walk I ever took Molly on was the time Molly was running for her life (and therefore, I was running for mine as well). We were being chased by a chihuahua. One that was wearing a cone on its head, no less.

Yes, labs with delusions of feline-hood certainly call for finely-honed survival skills. ;-)

And, yes, chihuahuas are scary -- especially ones with cones on (even more irritable). I owned a chihuahua for about six months once. He was a nice wee dog but all the big dogs quaked in fear of him. I'm talking everything from setters to Old English Sheep Dogs, to Rottweillers. Now that's scary!
