What Do You Want?

What Do You Want? by you.

In my entry way from the driveway before going into the house, Rusty looks up at me questioningly, trying to figure out what I really want from him. I wanted two things, really. First, I wanted him to sit facing away from me so I could get a picture of the snow on his back. Second, I wanted him to shake that snow off his back before we went into the house. He was trying to understand me, but he didn’t quite get it. Before we went into the house, he shook hands with me. He tried!

About NJ

I love to write! I realized in 9th grade that I really enjoyed writing. Every two weeks we had assigned topics that we were to use to write an essay. I liked writing the essays. I'm a mom and a grandma. None of my family live nearby, but they visit when they are able to come. I've been a pastor's wife and a grade school teacher. Now I'm retired and enjoying visiting others, and indulging myself in my hobbies, --writing and art activities. I'm very thankful for the blessings in life.

    You can see that he wants to please you. I can see a wisp of snow on his back. I keep a towel to wipe down Winston’s back, as he really gets everything wet if I don’t . He is one of those dogs that if I were to growl at him, it would break his heart. I bet Rusty is the same,,,,, –

    Tauna, Rusty is a very sweet natured dog. It’s amazing that the abusive he went through in his first home didn’t turn him mean and distrusting. He’s very loving and he does want to please me.

    Thanks, Sally, for your comment. Rusty does try to understand what I’m talking about. NJ
