"IN DOG YEARS, I`M DEAD"
Saturday, January 30, 2010
The dogs are not affected. They have been more harrassed by Riot.
Riot began life as Flair, but it was immediately evident that it was quite the wrong choice.
Riot is now 12 weeks, and immensly cute. Unfortunately she is also immensely demanding. Her preferred method of asking an adult to play - and she requires constant play - is to stand directly in front of her victim and bark incessantly in its face. My lot find that her cuteness wears off really quickly....
.Her mother suffers greatly from this and usually hides, often as high as she can get. As a result of this, Riot has learned to climb like a monkey, and when I am siting quietly, will suddenly appear on my shoulder, screeching her demands in my ear. Alas, I fear that long after the cuteness wears off, the bark will still be with us.....
The cold spell did not trouble her. I had dug out my fun fur coat, and she became obsessed by it. The first time I wore it she was enchanted. She snuggled into it and looked earnestly up at me. "It took you long enough to grow this!" She then refused to be parted from it, and spent the cold days curled up in it, (usually when I was doing exactly the same. )
Solitaire? - well, she has a lot to occupy her now. More about that later.
Good luck with the shrill barking, especially in your ear. Much worse than my Taffy Kitty who sneaks up on the back of the chair and then gently "mews" when she doesn't get the attention that she craves.
