New Laptop

    Awww, look how loved you are! What a cutie pie! My puppy dog doesn’t like my holding my laptop all the time. He will either crawl onto my chest (if I’m writing while laying down on the couch), or lay his chin over the keys, wreaking havoc with my words on the page.

    What’s his name?

      Her name is Missy. I picked her out at the pound as a gift for my dad about seven or eight years ago. She’s been the best dog our family has ever had. She sleeps about 20 hours a day, doesn’t bark, and barely lifts her head if someone knocks on the door (great right now that my parents are having work done on the house and the guys are in and out all the time).

      Her only issue is that she must have lap time with every person who comes in and sits down in our living room. She doesn’t just jump up, though. She comes over and sits by your feet until you invite her up.

    That is the cutest laptop I’ve EVER seen!! I’m sure it’s the most lovable too! 😉

      Yes, this laptop came as the “extra loving” version.

    Now that’s about the most darling laptop I’ve ever seen!

      The “software” is great, but it does tend to get a little warm when held on the lap for a few hours. 😉

    Adorable! Isn’t it wonderful how animals know when you aren’t feeling well and try to cheer you up? 🙂

      One of the things that Missy can’t live without is being petted. And since it hasn’t been easy for her to get up in my lap since I’ve been here, she’s perfectly content with sitting to the left of the footpiece of the recliner so I can give her “foot pets.” That’s her way of cheering me up!

      It’s Missy’s world, and we just live in it. On the surface, she doesn’t seem like that smart of a dog, but when you look at how well trained she has her people, she looks like a genius!

    That “belly up” picture is too funny!


    • Monday, November 22, 2010 11:17 am

      She will only lie that way when on someone’s lap, never when she’s sleeping on her own. And if you aren’t actively petting her, those feet come up and start pawing for your hands, or whatever she can reach, to make you start petting her again!

    I love those kinds of laptops!

    She looks almost exactly like my Mimi’s dog named Missy. Sounds like your Missy and my Missy are long lost twins! Mimi’s Missy does all the same things, except for waiting to be invited into your lap.

      We found her in the pound in DeSoto, TX, so they’d have to be REALLY separated twins! 🙂 My mom and I went together to look, because, of course, she had to live with the dog, too. Missy was the only medium-sized dog there (most were Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, etc.) and was so sweet to us that we were pretty sure she was the one we wanted. But sometimes dogs that are sweet with women aren’t with men (and everyone working at the pound was female, too). So we stopped at Walmart on the way home and got a little bag of dog food and a little $1 stuffed dog (looks like a cheap knockoff version of Snoopy), which I put down in a big gift bag and gave to my dad, explaining I wanted to get him a dog, but he had to go back to the pound with me to make sure she was the right one.

      As soon as we got there, the staff led us out into the little fenced yard behind the building and then they brought Missy out. He was sitting on a bench, and she came right over to him and pressed herself against his leg as if to say, “Okay, boss, let’s go home.”

        Mimi’s Missy is a rescue too. She was abused, but she’s recovered wonderfully and was just what Mimi needed after Abby died last summer.

    Oh, Kaye! How sweet! I’m trying to figure out how we can turn our two outside dogs into at least part-time inside dogs. They’re bigger than Missy, but they like to be lap-dogs, too! Take care of yourself!!

      It’s hard to turn outdoor dogs into indoor dogs, but it can be done with lots of patience and training. And the bigger the dog, the more they want to be lapdogs!

    The only problem with laptops like that is if they crap out on you it’s messy. 😉

      True—but this one just has a tendency to go into hibernation mode, so long as the user’s hands are in contact with the belly, ears, or neck.

    hahaha!!! the comments on this are just as hilarious as the title!

    I started laughing at the belly up picture and didn’t get the ‘laptop’ reference at all until half way through the comments…which just keep getting increasingly funny! Nothing like a comical fur buddy to keep you (and everyone else) amused during your convalescence!
