Today I'd like to introduce you to my dog, Meeko. He is a very loving and loyal companion and a great protector. There's a couple of times that he's come to my defence when we were out walking and was approached by someone who was aggressive.
Meeko is a gentle giant. However, his job is to protect his family and he takes that job seriously.
Meeko thinks he's the king of the house. He likes to be in control. He knows he isn't to be on the furniture but sometimes he tries his luck to see if we are watching. Above Meeko and my oldest grandson are trying to pull the wool over my eyes. However, they got caught red-handed. Look at Meeko's face. Doesn't it appear like he is laughing. He has a partner in crime - someone who isn't protesting fiercely because he's on the couch.
And here, above is the youngest grandson and Meeko on the bed. Both of them know that this is not allowed, but Meeko and the boys try their limits every once in a while.
Here is a picture of Meeko alone. He enjoys being outside and is for the most part very obedient. When we got him, they told us he wouldn't obey. However he knows his place in the pack and also knows when he's overstepped his limits. That's when the ears and tail go down and he slinks off in to his favorite corner.
Meeko is a very big part of our lives. Yes, he would like to be Leader of the Pack. He would like to be king of the household. Unfortunately for him his name is not King and he is not head of the household. He is a faithful companion, part of our family and a very big part of our lives. We wouldn't know what to do without him.
