As of tomorrow morning, I am looking after the YD's little darling. And here she is.
However, in the meantime, if she cannot have her mistress, Grama is next best. She settles down on her favourite piece of the living room carpet (as shown) and keeps the other eye and ear on me. If I get up, she watches to see where I go. The tail is tucked between her legs, the eyes even more wistful than usual.
As soon as she hears the car, up she pops, the tail goes up, and she heads for the door.
Tomorrow the YD has to go into the city and get a lot of paperwork done. She is going to spend the night at her sister's house. Shammy is staying here. I hope I can be an adequate substitute for the Beloved for a day and a half.
Wish me luck.
There is a new game, chez G. It seems to be a version of hide and seek. Mary opens front door and wants Shammy to come in. Shammy runs around the house and hides. Mary closes front door. Shammy comes up onto porch. Mary opens door. Shammy runs around house and hides. Mary opens back door. Shammy runs around ............ do dogs giggle? Because if so, this one is giggling.
She is now in the house, courtesy of JG. Still giggling.
