“You’re doing it, you’re making “the face” “…I have heard that at least a million times from my husband over the years, and have said it to him twice as much.
“The face” can’t be faked..we have tried, and failed every single time., and we laugh and laugh at our feeble attempts.
We call it “the face of love” and it happens when we are fully engaged with our Labs..you dog lovers know what I’m talking about… not the “hey, what’s up Enzo” conversation..but the “oooooh, you are so goooood..you like those ears rubbed?? You like that belly scratched?? What a sweeeeet boy!” It’s a mutual love fest, a slobbering love beast eating it up and his human’s stress fading fast…and out comes “the face”
We always say we need to get a picture of it, since neither of us know what we look like until now..well, at least one of us knows…me.
“The face” was captured last year while I was enjoying having this sweet black Lab snout to nose. She wanted my apple desperately, and might have gotten a little nibble or two.
The sweet creature went to mooch from the angels yesterday . I bet they’re all making this face…it’s not pretty..but it feels beautiful.
