This is our girl, Bandit. We lovingly call her “simple dog” in reference to a web comic our daughter reads. Bandit is an Australian Cattle Dog/Jack Russell Terrier mix who is almost 7 months old. She is far from simple, in fact, she is too smart for her own good most of the time. For example…our terrier, Wolfie, has a sweater. Being a small dog, he gets cold easily. Bandit was actually jealous when it turned cold and we put Wolfie’s sweater on. She would bark, whine, and try to pull it off of him. So…being the good doggy parents we are, we went out and bought Bandit a sweater. It’s light grey with pink bows and ruffles. We put in on her and she was in heaven…and she didn’t bother Wolfie and his sweater anymore. Go figure. Anyway…the reason Bandit is the subject of my post today is what happened this morning. We woke up to clouds and flurries. The dogs went out and Bandit realized something was falling from the sky. She stood staring up at the sky, confused at what was falling on her head. Once they came inside, she took her usual lookout post on the back of the couch (as in the picture) and proceeded to growl and bark at the flurries. We live in Minnesota. Here’s to hoping she gets used to the white stuff…and soon. If not, it’s going to be a looooong winter. Gotta love my simple dog.
