As most of you know, we have a great dane named Georgia. She’s hilarious: 100 lbs of puppy, chill and hyper in equal measures, crazy, sweet, funny, mouthy, and tons of personality–she’s our very own comedian, ridiculous in every way.
Georgia lives by one theory: When in doubt, lick it.
Keeping this in mind, I came home the other day and opened the door to the laundry room–her room–to find her leaning over a space heater, her face inches away from the plastic grill covering the “safety first” heater. We have the heat turned down while we’re gone, but leave the heater in her room set at a certain temperature; when the temp dips below 70 it blows warm air, and when it’s 70+ the heater turns off.
My theory is: Georgia liked the warm air, wanted it to turn back on when the temp automatically turned itself off, and decided–according her life motto–to lick it… This is when I caught her sheepishly hovering over said heater, tongue inches from the plastic… yeah…
welcome to my world… and to the psyche of a remarkably funny great dane.
what’s your life motto??
i think mine might be “when in doubt, love” who knows.
