Freudian Slippers

One of the auction items I got at the Lab Rescue LRCP holiday auction was the cutest set of plush "Lab" slippers from

They are very warm and comfortable.  Little did I know the psychological effect on my dog.

For when I put them on last night, Abby Lab went bonkers thinking they were actual puppies.  She went into "play with me!" mode, prancing, then bowing down in front of them, showing her belly and wagging,then barking when they didn't "play" back.  If I walked towards her, it was even worse.

Finally, I took them off so she could see they were just slippers.  OK, but I got this look like "not real puppies, but they're stuffies and all the stuffies are MINE", right?"  At which point she grabbed one and ran off with it.

Finally, slippers rounded up, I let her sniff them and see they weren't  puppies or stuffies but slippers that smell like Mom's feet.

"I'm still not sure about these."

Today we have "slipper detente".  She has a new stuffie that's just hers but she has kept her paws off my slippers.
"Harumph  I'll just lay here with my boring stuffie turkey leg"

  7. I, Chester the Chocolate Lab, confess to totally losing it on a raccoon hand puppet that one of my girls received last Christmas! Still not 100% okay with it......
