Last night, ThatManILove left the TV room and went into the bedroom to get his book. We always keep the dogs in the same room with us, so when TMIL left the TV room, he shut the dogs back into the room with me.
I was blogging and watching TV, and realized Zanna was way too still. I looked around the room, and found her...on point.
She was looking at something behind the TV.
I thought, “Great. TMIL is in the other room. Whatever it is, if it’s a mouse, when I move, it’s going to run, and Zanna will probably try to catch it, and we’ll have a wreck in this room!”
I quietly ease off the couch. She doesn’t even flinch, that Zanna-girl is on a hard point. I ease onto the rug, trying to be as quiet as I can. Creeping up to the TV, I take a peek behind the TV, right where Zanna’s nose is pointing.
Thank God it’s not a mouse. Or a snake. Not even a lizard.
It’s a housefly, and i try to kill it. (Yes, I missed.)
A teeny, tiny, common housefly. And I bet with all those eyes the nasty things have, that fly was scared to death. Because you know it’s gotta be seeing about a million spots on a hard-pointing quivering in her footprints out of pure excitement wonder pup ticked German Shorthair.
I had to say “No bird, Zanna! No bird!” three times to get her to break point.
I laughed so hard, I cried. Her trainers will be so proud.
