I always love reading the hilarious tales of "bad dog" antics whenever I'm scrolling through my blog roll, as well as Facebook and Instagram. They're always funnier when they're not happening to you, it's true, but some of these bloggers make me crack up when they recount their dog anecdotes. Not only is it amusing, it's a great insight that bloggers don't have perfect dogs. It's a much needed reality check sometimes, I think!
Here on my blog though, I don't share any naughty behavior from The Tiny Terror. Why? Well, to be perfectly honest.....
My dog is too good for blogging.
Yep, it's true. There's no funny recounts of mischief because Nola almost never does anything bad, so long as her physical and mental needs are met. She doesn't chew what she isn't suppose to (she barely chews what she is suppose to). She doesn't destroy anything. She doesn't bother other animals. She's not a digger. So long as she's with me, she's not an escape artist. Save for one incident in over five years, she's never blown me off during training. She's great with kids. She's at ease in new situations. She's nearly obscenely well behaved.
Her only issue is she'll pee inside if I use any kind of ear wash on her, even if I let her outside immediately after.... I'm usually not one to think dogs are vindictive by nature, but sometimes she makes me wonder with that, because she won't potty inside otherwise.
Normally, I love this about her. The first 18 months were rough for us, and she must have gotten all her mischief out during that time, because now she's damn near perfect and that must be my reward for all our hardships. ;)
However, when it comes to blogging, this girl often leaves me scrambling for new material. I can only be like "look at these pretty pictures of my pretty dog" so many times, you know? I'll admit to asking her to be a little wicked, just for a blog post. She gives me a baleful look, and continues on with her
bad good self. Oh, well! I'm not too bummed about my goody-two-shoes pup. ;)

Does anyone else have a dog like Nola, a pup that's almost too good?
