The Flo Zone


Nope. It isn’t a nick name. It isn’t some military target. And it isn’t the distance from the beer tap to the cup.

The Flo Zone is a moving, fluffy, four-legged territory. The territory is hers’ and she isn’t crazy about sharing.

We’ve all grown accustom to the Flo Zone. Every evening after her last run she goes from bed to bed, passively moving each dog from their comfort and slumber.

A gaze of mischief

I don’t think I have ever heard a snarl or even seen a lip curl from her. Instead, she circles the bed, puts one paw on and then another until her victim moves.

Sadly, she rarely lays down but instead moves onto the next dog and repeats the process.

Buddy spent the day resting peacefully beside my desk. He strolled out for a few breaks, but would come right back to the cushion beside me.

In her defense, I’m sure that all she heard was “Flo, blah blah blah blah, Buddy blah blah blah blah blah.”

Geez she made me mad when she moved him. I just couldn’t get their fast enough.

I was ready to put her on a slow boat back to the racing kennel, broken hock or not.

I can only hope she saw the light.

Because she at least pretended to listen to me as I ranted and raved for about 10 minutes on why Buddy can no longer be her target.

Sheesh! I’m spending as much in hair color these days as I am kibble.

  1. My, what a long nose. How many shots did you have take to get her whole face in?

    Lovely grey. 🙂 I’m looking forward to my next foster, sometime next year.

  2. Dogs have such funny behaviors sometimes don’t they? I know this is not a “Ha. Ha.” matter, but it always fascinates me how they interact with one another. I’m hoping Flo understood the rant, but as you said, she probably heard the blah, blah, blah. Is there a way to just teach her that she has one bed that is hers? That way when she starts to make the rounds you can say “Your bed” or something like that. Poor Buddy. Hope he recuperates without any more disturbances. It’s hard to say no to a sister that looks as cute as his does. 🙂

  3. There’s always a pushy one in every group. Luckily, the one in mine is almost 14 years old with ‘wobbly butt’, so plays troll from her bed. Going through the kitchen to avoid her is becoming a favorite option. Love the tight head shots.

  4. I guess nursing wasn’t a career choice for Flo? I hope she is giving Buddy some sympathy by now, poor guy. Beryl does the same thing to Frankie but he’s actually started setting his jaw, closing his eyes and ignoring her. It seems to be working.
