In the mornings, Morgan is particularly exhuberant in her greetings. Sometimes, I meet her at the gate in the hallway and have a little chat with her over the gate until I feel she's had enough time to take in the splendor of seeing my face again for the first time since the night before. There's nothing like a Shepherd in your life to make you feel treasured, let me tell you! After she's regained control of herself, I cautiously move through the gate and then her calm façade vanishes and she has to pounce on me until she's had a chance to wash my face with her tongue. Yes, I fall for it every morning, but the alternative is not getting my bottle of water to start the day, so I start every day with my first face wash before turning on the bathroom sink. Now that I've gotten used to it, though, I have to say, it's nice being greeted with that much enthusiasm every day.
Mr. Taleteller is known to play games with Morgan, moreso than I do. We have our hide and seek time, and she does bring me her toys to toss, but more often, she does a little wrestling and rough-housing with my husband. They both enjoy these little sessions, and Morgan needs them to burn off steam. One thing that we've learned about Morgan over the months is that she's a knitter. She likes to nibble on Mr. Taleteller's hands like she's eating an ear of corn. It's rather cute, but this is her one behavior that he doesn't appreciate. While I find it rather cute, he does not. Of course, she never knits on me!
girly scream come from the bedroom. I leaned out the bathroom and asked my husband if he was okay.
He informed me that not only had Morgan stuck her cold nose to his derriere, she'd decided to nibble on his butt cheek as well. I will spare you all the images of that horror. That's mainly because I was laughing too hard to get any sort of photo of the event. Suffice it to say, I really love having a German Shepherd. Life is certainly never dull when they play their games!
