Zappa has always been Daddy's dog and Brut has always been mine. With Daddy walking the dogs on a regular basis, Brut has taken to possessing Daddy which gives me an opportunity to give Zappa some extra attention that he has been missing out on.
The bond between Zappa and I is sort of under the table. We are like a couple of spies stealing time throughout the day. We are having more eye contact Zappa has decided in the last few months to start mouthing off to Brut at random moments. Once we connect he begins to settle down. Zappa can't seem to get over the fact that he isn't top dog but likes to act like he is.
We took a walk today and we had a blast. When Zappa is walking with Daddy, he is more relaxed, bouncing side to side on the leash, but with me he is all business. We have a mission. Getting from point A to point B and back around again. We walk swiftly and with a purpose. There's no messing around when we are together. There is serious concentration happening here and focus. He had me busting up at the difference in the walks as he picked up speed on a scent and I tried to stay up with him. I hadn't thought of it until now, but he reminded me of Chance and his work ethics attitude. Just give him a job and he will execute.
He still brings smile to my face as this dopey eyed dog, so sweet and loving can become like a lion when given the chance to show himself. All he needs is the right opportunity and then WATCH OUT!!
Such a regal handsome fella!
Love that last photo - he looks happy and confident. And spending that time together walking is a great way to bond.
We are all more or less "Mom's" dogs but Ciara is pretty close to her Dad too - she is an equal opportunity girl:)

Zappa looks like a blast! I love that bottom photo of him. He has some beautiful markings and that joyful expression just sets them off so well. What a fun and handsome guy.
It's nice you are getting to spend a bit more time with him, even if you have to be stealth. With so many dogs demanding your attention, I am sure it must be hard to spend an equal amount with all. You have to cherish the moments you do have together.
Such a cutie you are sweet Zappa!
I love the bottom pic of Zappa. I find it is so hard to capture that doggy energy on film. That picture certainly does.
He looks so handsome in that last photo! So full of life and ready to get it on!!
That's a really fun photo the last one.
Nothin better than a really brisk walk with your dog. I just love it.
Wow, what a crew!
Oh, and Happy Presidents Pets Day - the day after Presidents Day, as I like to call it. In the US, of course we love our presidents..... pets. See my blog if you’re in the mood for a good ol' irreverent howl.
What wonderful pictures, he looks very handsome!
The two of you sound like the perfect partners in crime :) You're right, the eyes do make him look a bit dopey, but it's never a good idea to judge a book by its cover.
I kind of think all dogs need a job and when they find the right one, they through themselves into it with great enthusiasm. It sounds like Zappa has found his calling -- or at least his mission! lol
Oh, I just love the photos! That roar photo is too cute.
I do love that last photo!!!! Dopey and loving eyes.
It's funny. R and I have a similar "under the table" relationship. R is primarily my husband's dog and K is primarily mine. But, we switch it up sometimes, and it's really fun to see how the dogs respond.
Awww! I love the "roar"!
He looks like fun! That's a great pic :)
