Meet Mack

How can you not love this face?

My mom would be quick to count the ways. It’s a short list. 1. He jumps on people 2. He made her swan dive across our porch and into the storm door…head first.

But really, he’s harmless. He just thinks he’s a chihuahua; he loves to sit in your lap, jump up and greet you when you come home, and when you’re running he thinks you’re inviting him to play “wrestle.”

But since Kelly is doing a post on pets, I thought I’d give you ten random Mack facts;

1. He is addicted to tennis balls. He won’t let you touch him if he has one. He just wants you to throw it for him, and he’ll fetch for hours. Seriously, last summer we had to physically put him in the pool we bought him so he could cool down- he ended up propping his head on the side and taking a nap.

2. His favorite food is M&M’s. And yes, I know chocolate is not good for him; we give him two- no more. But I’m telling you, it’s like giving him Prozac.

3. He has two mortal enemies: hot air balloons and plastic grocery sacks. We have hot air balloons fly over our neighborhood regularly because there are many fields around our house where they are able to land. Mack will bark at them until he has foamed an entire beard on himself.

4. He loves to play with other dogs; especially Maverick when he gets loose. If you haven’t read about Maverick, he’s a 128 pound Pit Bull that goes on the lamb every so often and comes over for a play date. We’ve tried to tell Mack to choose his friends wisely, but you know teenagers, they just don’t listen.

5. He cries to go to bed at night. Every night, like clockwork, his head pops up in the back door and he cries until Coach puts him in his kennel for the night.

6. He sleeps with his tennis ball.

7. When he is allowed to come in, he likes to lay on top of me like a blanket- an 80 pound blanket that drools and occasionally passes gas.

8. He swims under water like a human. It’s weird and honestly, a little disconcerting.

9. When we take him to a farm that some friends own to swim in their pond he swims right through the gaggle of ducks he is born to hunt to fetch his ball. Every single time.

10. He loves us all unconditionally, and really what more can you ask? Even if it is a love that is complete with drool, dog hair, and a little gas.

See y’all!

    1. My old retriever used to lounge on pool floats like this and nap. So odd that they’re so relaxed.

    2. I’ve heard it takes massive amounts of chocolate to hurt big dogs like that. No harm, no foul.

    3. MY DOG HATES PLASTIC GROCERY SACKS. He literally cowers between my legs when you walk by one.

    4, 5, 6, 7, Seriously we may have the same big, galumph-y, lovable dog.

    8. Except for this. I’m with you. Whoa.

    I need for Mac and Knox to be friends. They share a special brand of crazy that is so endearing.
