Relaxing In The Grass | Dog Facial Expressions | New York
Our pet family has constantly evolved and changed over the years.
We have never had fewer than 2 dogs.
The newest member to our family has been Colton. He is around two years old now and he is a big goofy Bernese Mountain Dog.
I don’t know if we have ever had a dog who was less aware of his interaction with the world. He has no concept of his body in space.
He loves to follow us around and by follow us I mean shepherd us around the house walking right next to use constantly bumping into us to the point of almost knocking us over.
Colton still hasn’t gotten used to hard floors, preferring the carpets, which while sad provides us a little respite from the constantly body checking. We can seek refuge in the kitchen and will often walk in a slightly longer route to wherever we are going just to go through the kitchen to get a little space from him.
Outside he is just a big dopey guy. He is not particularly playful, but I have been working with him to help him figure out how to play outside.
He does however like the taste of trees. Colton has eaten multiple trees I planted as they were growing.
Most of the time he can be found just relaxing in the grass as seen in the photo below. Some goofy looking expression on his face.
