POODLE, PEANUT WATCHE’S

WHILE MARK AND COLEEN PLAY A GAME PEANUT WATCHES. HE WAS A SCRANNY, LITTLE POODLE, NEVER FAT. HE LEARNED QUICKLY THAT COLEEN WAS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE FOOD CHANG. SOMETHING I DID NOT KNOW. SHE TOLD ME MANY YEARS LATER, WHEN I WAS BUSY WITH LAUNDRY OR WHATEVER, SHE WAS CALLED FAT (A LOT) AND ORDERED AROUND. TOO BAD I DIDN’T KNOW. DUFUS WAS A MEAN, OLE BULLY.

I THOUGHT IT WAS BECAUSE SHE WAS THE YOUNGEST, THAT PEANUT THOUGHT HE COULD BULLY HER. HE WOULD NIP AT HER TO MAKE HER MOVE OVER ON THE SOFA. ALTHOUGH IT WAS FUNNY, IT WAS NOT O.K.  I PUT A STOP TO THAT.

SHE,OF COURSE, DID LOVE THAT DOG. I HAD A LITTLE CHAIR, DUFUS HAD A RECLINER. MARK AND COLEEN AND MARK BOUGHT ME A ROUND FLUFFY, FOOT STOOL FOR IT. WHEN PEANUT MISBEHAVED I WOULD TELL HIM, “GO GET ON YOUR FOOT STOOL” AND HE WOULD.

WHEN WE WOULD COME HOME, FROM CHURCH, I WOULD PUT MY TEACHING MATERIAL’S ON MY FOOT STOOL, CHANGE CLOTHES AND PREPARE A MEAL. SOON I NOTICED MY TEACHING MATERIALS WOULD BE ON THE FLOOR. PEANUT WOULD GET ON “HIS” FOOT STOOL AND BARELY NUDGE MY MATERIALS, SLOWLY OVER AND OVER UNTIL THEY WERE FINALLY ON THE FLOOR AND OFF “HIS” FOOTSTOOL.”  WHAT COULD I DO?  WHAT I HAD BEEN TELLING HIM, “YOUR FOOTSTOOL.”

PEANUT LOVED RIDING THE MOTORCYCLE. I HAD A LITTLE BASKET PUT BEHIND ME AND WOULD SECURE HIM INTO IT. HE NEVER STOPPED BARKING. A HOME PET, NOW “KING OF THE ROAD.” WE DID NOT TAKE HIM ON REAL LONG RIDES.

I KNOW DUFUS TRIED TO COW HIM, HE WAS SO TINY AND ALL WERE TARGETS FOR DUFUS. WHAT YOU DO NOT SEE, YOU SOMETIMES DO NOT KNOW. IT’S NOT GOOD TO PUT YOUR OWN VALUE’S ONTO OTHERS. OTHERWISE, YOU DO NOT SUSPECT THE WORST SCENARIO.  ONE DAY DUFUS CAME IN WITH HIS WORK BOOT’S ON AND WAS STANDING BY THE FRONT DOOR TALKING. PEANUT WALKED UP, HIKED UP A LEG AND DID WHAT MALE DOG’S DO. COLEEN AND I ABOUT DIED LAUGHING SO HARD. WAS PEANUT COWED???    ABSOLUTELY NOT!  DUFFUS JUST STOOD THERE WITH EGG ON HIS FACE.  HE DID OR SAID NOTHING. THE BEHAVIOR OF A TRUE NARCISSISTIC PERSON.

THE SMALLER THE DOG THE BIGGER THEY SEEM TO THINK THEY ARE OR MAYBE THEY JUST THINK THEY ARE STRONGER. THEY ARE IN CHARGE.

DUFUS ALSO THOUGHT GIRLS DO NOT BELONG IN COLLEGE. I MADE HIM SAVE MONEY AND SHE WENT TO COLLEGE! I WAS LATER TOLD THAT HE TOLD COLEEN, “IF YOU GIVE ME WHAT I WANT I WILL BUY YOU A NEW CAR, ANY MAKE YOU WANT.” SCUMBAG!
