Lobito
Not once is there a boring moment in my house! That’s because of my dog Lobito.
Unlike other families that have a human sometimes being the clown of their family, in
my family my dog Lobito is the clown. He has got to be the funniest dog alive. From his
jealousy fits, and his way of picking fights with the rest of the dogs to his no stop playing
with his stuffed animals.
Well the best place to start would be by describing his way of fighting with other
dogs. He’s straight out of one of those movies where there saying “ hold me back”. No
matter how big the dog is he will challenge him. This would be great if he actually
followed through with his threat but he doesn’t. He has this funny habit that when were
holding him back from another dog, his bark starts getting louder. While holding him
back he tends to pull and yank hard, and almost say “let me at him”. The funny part is
when we actually do let him go, he’s surprised we let him go , and gives us this look like
hey hold me back! Another thing that goes along with his fighting techniques, are his day
dream desires of being a security dog. We have this one dog named Pinto that Lobito
hates with all his heart. Being that Pinto is alot older and bigger than Lobbito , Lobito
never dares raise a bark at Pinto. But don’t ever tell Pinto to go outside the house,
because as soon as Lobito hears the words “Pinto outside”, hell breaks loose. Lobito will
come tearing around the corner like if he heard Puppy Chow was going to be on sale. He
starts barking and yelping right behind Pinto with an occasional nip at his tail. At the
same time while this is all going on he tends to give us a look that says how am I doing?
Well that’s not the worst part, the worst part is when it comes to his jealousy. It could
be said that Lobito has this idea that he’s number one, and he’s got this idea for
everything that happens to him. Due to this idea of his we make it a point not to pet any
other dog besides him while he’s around, and if we accidentally do pet another dog he
makes it clear to us he’s upset with us by growling. We never let him catch us petting
another dog! He’ll come right up to us, and cut in-between the dog were petting . He’ll
then start barking at the other dog to leave. This is an everyday thing , and if by any
chance we don’t pet him, he’ll let us know he’s upset with us. He’ll put us on ignore
mode for the rest of the day. If this happens we don’t even bother calling out his name
because he’ll never come.
Another big part of his jealousy act is when someone brings a baby into the house. He
starts the biggest and loudest barking his lungs will permit. We actually have to lock him
in a room due to the fact that were scared he’ll bite the baby out of jealousy. He’ll be
barking and snarling at the door for as long as he’s locked in there. He’s got his paw
marks all over the inside of the door from scratching so much to get out. This isn’t the
worst of it. It’s when we actually do let him out that is. He goes around the house sniffing
everything in site, and after that he puts everyone on ignore mode. He’ll eventually gives
us permission to pet him, and kiss up to him, but not before he shows us his feelings were
hurt.
And last but not least, Lobitos world famous stuffed toy collection. This is his pride
and joy. He has about ten stuffed toys scattered around the house. In the front and back
yard, under beds and even in the bathroom. Each one slobbered to perfection! This is
where our trick to make him happy comes in. If we really want Lobito to like us, we just
add a piece to his collection. He tends to play with his new animals for days, and carries
them around in his mouth everywhere he goes. He shows off his his new toy by taking it
to us so we can
