My Shadow

  • I understand why dogs love my husband, he gets down on the floor at their level to greet them and play with them.  And both our dogs adore him.  Don't get me wrong, they love mommy too, for food and cuddles and pets. 
     
    But what I don't understand is why certain dogs bond so strongly with certain people.  For instance, we have 2 dogs and Papi has always favored my husband, from the day we adopted him. He loves everybody but his day is not complete until my husband is home and they have played together, even if it's just for a few minutes as he's getting up there in years... the dog, not my husband... well, that too, I guess. 
     
    But Dobby is my shadow.  From the first day we adopted him he has followed me everywhere.  He must be where I am and he will endure discomfort to do so.  What I mean is that he will even choose me over his beloved blanket, leaving it behind, to lay on the floor and stare at me while I fold laundry in another room.  He must sleep where I sleep or he sleeps by the door or gate separating us, which has only happened a few times when I was ill or my back was bothering me.
     
    He is my little house elf, as loyal to me as his namesake was to Harry Potter.  He is my shadow, silently at my feet, shifting with my movements, while his 'brother' happily dozes through the day apart from us.  Whether my husband is home or not, Dobby's dedication to me is unwavering. 
    I don't understand how they choose favorites, but they clearly do.  And if I'm honest, I don't really mind having such a cute shadow.
