(pitchers by Gary Rith)
I spent part of yesterday lying around blowing my nose---my monthly COLD I guess, from which I am much better thanks, and fell asleep early and did not mind (too much) the sound of my dogs vomiting on the kitchen floor at 4am. So, up and at em, all of us.
My parent's dog Abby who is visiting has been pretty good since the first minutes. She is very curious about our cats, and they are curious about her. Abby is very friendly by nature. She was good and slept in the hallway last night, because the last time she was here and tried to enter our room Penny kicked her a$$. Yesterday I was eating and Penny was under my chair and Abby came up to beg, and Penny kicked her a$$.....I don't want my 20 pound beagle to be unfriendly, but she is the BOSS and Abby needs to back off when Penny growls. Penny means it. Our first dog Petey, a 20 pound beagle mix, had also been a street dog and he was boss, and never hesitated to defend a treat or his spot on the bed. Funny how dogs are--size does not matter!
So, in sum, the visiting dog Abby is being very good and following the rules and acting peaceful, and my own dogs are pretty much the same and my nose is red but mostly dry. Happy Saturday! :)
