BCS Championship Football Game + New Dog

We are crazy Alabama football fans. My husband and I set out all our Crimson Tide lucky charms before college football games and 'hoot and hollar', high-five, and dance around after big plays. Yes, we are those people. The ones that you make fun of on YouTube.

Followers of this blog know that we have one dog and one cat, and that we just adopted a second dog. Our resident dog is a shy, skittish girl that was horribly abused as a pup. My husband and I have worked hard to give this dog stability and confidence, and I'm happy to say that she's doing great.

Our new dog is a sloppy lover boy, a 50+ pound lap dog that we adopted from the local SPCA. So far, he's been the polar opposite of our scaredy-cat dog.

But not last night.

We learned something during the Alabama versus Notre Dame game. Our timid, high-strung pooch slept on the couch through the entire football game. She was completely unfazed by our antics (and let me tell you, my husband was raise-the-roof happy with how the game was going). Our new, confident, lazy dog did not respond well to the noise. 

Pre-game, we were all cozy on the sofa: husband, two dogs, cat and me (yes, it's a big sofa; we have to make room for lots of love). Everything was going fine until the Tide easily dominated on the opening drive, going 82 yards on five plays to take a 7-0 lead on Eddie Lacy's 20-yard touchdown run up the middle with 12:03 left in the first quarter.

Can you imagine our shenanigans? (It won't hurt my feelings if you imagine a hillbilly happy dance at this point, I probably would too if I was reading this post).

Our fearful pup slept right through the celebration, as did our cat. Our new dog, however, had never experienced Casa de Cornwell during college football season. He kept leaving the room to seek refuge. Then, when things settled down, he would come back and take up his rightful place with the pack. Another play, another exit. I tried to make him comfortable in the bedroom but he kept coming back to see if things were 'back to normal'. This went on all night.

It's interesting to observe how adaptable dogs are; I'd never realized how our current dog, with all her emotional problems, had accepted our behavior during football games. Our new dog will surely get used to it too.

Did I mention his name is Big Al?

  Roll Tide Roll.

Pets are the best for sure. Our adopted dog is the same way--he knows the family's routine.

Definitely a good time to be a Bama fan.

sounds like a fun night. I don't have any dogs, just a cat, but I hope your new dog gets used to the noise. I'm sure he will :)

Can't you see it? The dog is obviously a Notre Dame fan! You need to work on him. I'd start with an Alabama doggy t-shirt.

Who knows, but I do hope your newest family member acclimates. If not they always have the dog whisperer. lol
