Here's what I like to think this look means:
And here's what I'm pretty sure it really means:
I'm just the water-girl* around here.
What about you? Are you more dog-pawrent or more dog-servant??
*Yes, Rita knows how to drink out of a water bottle. Well, technically it's an energy gel flask for running, but it's a handy size for carrying water for her and I can stick it in my pocket if I need to free-up a hand.

We are so busy walking and sniffing out critters, we rarely stop, let alone look at Mom. I do it the most, but Mom says it is because I'm older and wiser and it is just to get a cuddle on our walk.ReplyDelete
Oh, you have cuddle breaks on your walks?? We do that too! I call them hug breaks! I’m not sure Rita loves them, but I do. :)Delete
A little of both with Ruby. But definitely food service girl for our cats.ReplyDelete
Haha. Yeah, not surprising with the cats. :)Delete
I think all pet owners are a bit of both. I lean a little more toward pet parent though.ReplyDelete
Yes, it depends on the day and the activity I guess. But mostly pet parent here too.Delete
LOL Aren't we all really dog-servants? I know I am!ReplyDelete
Sometimes I do wonder what Rita thinks... Sometimes I think she worships us, and sometimes I think it’s vice versa!Delete
I agree, probably a little of both... but I try to be more of the parent. But when they give you those puppy eyes it's hard to stay strong, LOL.ReplyDelete
Oh, the puppy eyes are very hard to resist!Delete
I am pretty sure the pugs expect us to be their servants!ReplyDelete
Sometimes we joke that Rita thinks of us as “the Management.” :)Delete
Oh I am definitely Blueberry’s servant. ;)ReplyDelete
Definitely a servant.ReplyDelete
Getting a lot of votes for servants here... Sensing a trend.Delete
I can only say what Milo might think... hurry up! Whee!!! Run!!!!ReplyDelete
Rita is so much more mature in her thoughts!
(Milo is influenced by his youth and not being snipped yet)
When he gets older, he’ll have demands. :)Delete
Dog servant for sure.ReplyDelete
Yep, definitely a consensus on “servant” here. :)Delete
Smart captioning there!ReplyDelete
We are all servants but that's only because our dogs don't have hands! If they did, they would be more than happy to help themselves to breakfast....lunch...dinner....1000 snacks.... ;-)ReplyDelete
That's why our dogs are always nicknamed "Moo-Moo Bossy." Taryn's comment reminds me of the time silly Jon asked who I'd save first in a burning car. Him? Or the dog? My response: Which one of you has hands? ;) TerryDelete
Haha. Yes, I would have responded the same!Delete
Gosh, can you imagine the chaos if they had hands?? We’d all have to have padlocks with secret codes on our fridges and pantries!
All our dogs drink out of water bottles. In fact, they have 4-5 of the Gatorade ones the football teams use and when they go to play, especially in the summer, we take them all in a backpack. And yes, it does make you feel like you're just the waterboy!ReplyDelete
Smart to bring a backpack. I bring a bigger water bottle when we go on longer walks or when it’s really hot. Maybe Ishould put it in a backpack to keep my hands free. Although... when she wants her water, she wants it NOW! :)Delete
You mean there's a difference? BOL Definitely servant. I live to serve these two knuckleheads. And they know it. 😆ReplyDelete
Hehe. And they deserve no less.Delete
Ha ha!!! I'm both - definitely the servant but hopefully the best friend too. I love your captions with her soul-searching look!ReplyDelete
Welcome to the club!Delete
BOL!! My humom probably thinks the same too but really what I mean is.."hey mom! give me a treat since I'm walking so well on leash!"ReplyDelete
Hmmm. You could be right. Rita might mean the same!Delete
The only times my dogs acknowledge that I exist on a walk is when they stop and decide they need a treat! (I make them work for it though...they have to do a "sit" or a "watch me" to get it!) :)ReplyDelete
I bet they decide that a lot. :)Delete
Lol, give her the water now!ReplyDelete
Demanding little beast, eh?Delete
hello pooch smooches its dennis the vizsla dog hay maybe rita is just thinking of the song the luk by the faymus minstrel prince!!! yoo got the luk yoo got the huk shur nuff do be drinking water in my buk!!! or sumthing like that!!! ok byeReplyDelete
Yes, I think those are the lyrics! Good one, Dennis!Delete
I was honored to be Bentley's servant. :-)ReplyDelete
