Stealing Magnolias

What's Jack up to? Oh you know Jack he's into a bit of everything, but yesterday he really came in handy when this soliciting dude, looking quite chatty came to my door ringing my bell. Don't ask me how he had the nerve to get up the steps because as soon as he hit the driveway Jack was already losing his mind. Barking, snarling, jumping, Jack was having none of this guy. He gave me the perfect out to say, through the door, "sorry, wild dog here. Can you just leave your literature on the porch and go? " What a good dog I have!

Thanks so much for all your comments to my marriage vs. motherhood post yesterday. I loved reading them. It really can be a sticky subject and I agree with the very honest point made that motherhood can make a marriage harder. So true. Also Children's ages can make motherhood harder. I am a different thinking woman than the one I was when my children were 4 or 5 as opposed to now 15. Just like I'm a different woman than the one I was when my husband first married me. Hmm... now I wonder how much the men actually change. I have to think on that a while. A post for another day perhaps?

It seems that Steel Magnolias was a real favorite with this group. So I went on youtube to look for a little clip to post here today and found this funny winner. Enjoy.

Kwana, I don't know you, but my gut is telling me you are doing a great job! I like how you said that your mothering changes during different stages. This was a great topic yesterday.

Ahhh.. Jack you were doing your job well job.
Some terriers are guard dogs others watch dogs and he was watching out for you. When Kelly and Bud (running in the heaven pastures) were young I would take their intense barks and overly excitments to heart. There instincts are more in tuned than mine.
Good job Jack that earned you a treat or two.

Oh Kwana that was HYSTERICAL! Thanks for the big laugh with my morning coffee.

Your post yesterday was very thought provoking and pushed some buttons certainly! I too enjoyed everyone's comments ... my opinion is that everyone changes over time and you have to take care to work on your relationships, sometimes very hard and/or painful work... as you said, a topic for another post...

Meanwhile, Jack! Good work buddy! Keep those door-to-door sales people at bay!! xo

Good Boy Jack! My terrier is not a barker until someone like that comes to the door! Love the video so funny!

Jack is too cute! I'm trying to convince my husband that we need a dog- no success yet...

Kwana I now have to go rent this movie out don't I? Great vid. Thanks for posting.

Kwana said...

Thanks for all your comments. Yes rent it Natalie. Yes, Jack was being wonderfully protective. He did earn a treat.

Tivi, be careful what you wish for!
