G R U D G E

G R U D G E — A word that sometimes says it all.  And it's one of those words you can grab on to because it can have texture and bite.  Kind of like Todd.
Last evening I accidentally stepped on Todd's foot. Kingston was right next to me, and Todd immediately started nipping at his face.  I scolded him, and put him outside to let him settle down. A few minutes later, I let Todd back in. But he was a dog with a grudge.  Because when he saw Kingston he went after him again.  Poor Kingston.  He had no idea what he'd done.
Today all is forgiven. But I think I need to say "thank-you Kingston for taking the blame for me."

  2. Yeah, sometimes they don't see what really happened, and I, for one, don't speak 'Dog' to explain. Hope they are fine now.

  3. Maybe Kingston just thought he was doing you a favor, which probably meant more to him than Todd's little dust up. I loved your story though. It reminds us to always have our friend's back.

  8. Why does everything always get blamed on the bird and/or dog?

  9. Naughty boy Todd !
    Poor Kingston, he's such a beautiful boy and I could not imagine him having one spiteful bone in his body. I hope he got extra treats and fuss.

  11. Oh Todd - maybe he didn't want to bite the hand that feeds him so he took it out on Kingston:)

  14. Our beagle Cricket was like that with her golden sister Sheba (now passed). No matter who did what to her she would blame her sister and go after her! The rest of the time they were best buddies. Dogs can be tough to figure out sometimes!

  16. Kingston reminds me of the older yellow lab who we adopted years ago. I miss him. I'm glad that all is forgiven by Todd now!
