I never know what I’ll find at home. Rugby has so many cute and endearing habits, and they just warm my heart through and through. He carries his little piggies everywhere, often napping or snuggling with them when he’s not grunting them and herding me! He generally likes having one or two of them nearby, and it’s a very frequent sight at our house. When he hears a noise that trips his trigger, he flies up from a nap, barking his head off, and looking for the closest piggie. He grabs his piggie, and grunts away, working out his frustration and anxiety with his piggie friend, until the moment has passed and he can calm himself once again. It’s a daily thing at my house.
Another really cute habit he has, is that after every single meal, when he has finished off his kibble and Salmon, he carries his supper bowl to whatever bed he plans to nap, and lays down and licks and licks and cleans it better than a dishwasher for sure! He typically takes anything of value to one of his beds, so those usually have piggies and a bonus supper dish on them if it’s right after mealtime.
I walked into the living room one day, and this is what I found! His little orange piggie was snuggling with Big Bear, and his supper dish, carefully placed for safekeeping.
These are the important things in the life of my little twenty-three pound dog. These little habits make up his daily routine and give him stability and security. They are the sweet habits that I cherish deeply, because they are uniquely Rugby. They always make me smile. Every. Single. Time.
