Trixie loves to be with me all the time, and she waits outside the bathroom door for me. She likes to find a comfy spot under my bed. She loves belly rubs and enjoys affection. She loves to go for walks, too. I had her running around in our backyard for exercise. One morning, I heard her whimpering, so I went over to see what she wanted. She was standing by the dog food bowl. I remember being told that she doesn't like to eat out of the bowl, but prefers it on a carpet or mat. I encouraged her to eat from the bowl. She attempted to, but then backed off. She looked at me with her very big, brown eyes, and I could tell she wanted me to move the food from the bowl to the mat. I put a handful on the mat, and she ate it right away. She's so funny that way!

Dogs are great pets, and it's always nice to have company for my dog.
