Cookie and the boys

So we have had Cookie, our dog, for almost three months.

She really is a good dog aside from the wandering into the neighbors yard to eat what ever she finds.

And I know I was blind to think for one minute she would want the boys more than me.

R8 could care less. He like her and will pet her but won't go out of his way to do so. Oh he gives her an occasional treat and takes her out of her crate. But to do anything else I have to ask.

R4 on the other hand would sit and cuddle her all day if I or she would let him.

He pets her and talks to her and tries to hug her all the time. I am constantly telling him to leave the dog alone.

But when I come home or sit down, all bets are off. Cookie
wants mama! She knows I'm a sucker and will pet her at will and rub her belly.

And she sleeps at the foot of my bed. I thought for sure she would sleep at the foot of one of the boys beds but no she likes mine.

As much as the boys try and get Cookie to sleep with them she won't.

So the other night we had family movie night and R4 crashed and R8 was just about asleep when Cookie jumped up on foot of the recliner and laid down.

And as proof for R4 I took this picture.
