We got a new puppy about 2 weeks ago. Her name is Dottie Ann and she is a Blue Tick Hound. Our older dog Lillie Belle, who is 2, wasn’t quite sure about her and was certainly jealous. Dottie took over Lillie’s new pillow, so I ran to Tractor Supply and bought her another one, to go with the one our dear friends from Georgia brought for her.
The ChemE went out one morning to leave for work and called me out to the garage. Both dogs were lying on the pillow, with Lillie Belle curled around Dottie Ann as though she were keeping her warm. Both dogs jumped up as though nothing sweet were happening.
We knew better.
I looked out the window today and what do you suppose I saw?
Lillie Belle and Dottie Ann out in the back yard, playing. I knew if I went outside with my camera, I would lose the opportunity to create a conversation between them for you, my millions of readers.
Okay, 2 or 3 readers.
I stood at the back door in the den and took these. I would like to imagine the conversation went something like this:
L: “My mouth is bigger than your head.” D: “Wanna bet?”
D: “Lillie? Lillie? LILLIE?!”
L: “GOTCHA!” D: “NOT COOL!”
D: “That was NOT funny!” L: “Hahahahahahahahaha”
L: “Somebody count! Where’s a ref when you need one?!”
