Lady has been having a really nice time just settling in and relaxing at home.
She is a pretty independent spirit, who enjoys being outside and just reflecting on her own thoughts as she sniffs the breeze.
She is contented by herself, but always has a wag and numerous kisses ready for anyone who comes to see her.
I just love that spotted tongue. I tried to count the kisses last time she gave me a session but I lost count.
Tashi had a spotted tongue like that too, and I can't really imagine anything more precious.
She and Fozzie get along well, though she and Lamar are not crazy about each other.
But then, Lamar is not crazy about anybody, and Lady just doesn't feel like putting up with his grumping. As she is too overweight and sluggish to get very far when she goes after him, their conflict has not really presented a problem. I do try to let Lamar relax in his own bedroom at night, so I keep Lady in the living room, where Florian has chosen to sleep with her of late.
She is not a dog like Fozzie who loves to drape himself over you, every part of his body in contact with some part of yours, but she likes proximity with her humans.
How fascinating dogs are, with their unique personalities. What goes through Lady's head, as she relaxes in the yard, then the moment she sees me, kisses me compulsively for minutes on end?
How is it that Fozzie, so reactive to other dogs on leash, shows such incredible maturity and tolerance with every foster dog I bring home, showing mild interest but seldom overbearing, and in turn bringing out the best in them?
Dogs are the best. It is truly an honor and a blessing to share my life with them!
