|Photogenic, adorable Bessie|
Bessie is about eight years old, a lively little girl who was quite excited to arrive here yesterday but has settled in nicely today. She is a velcro dog (though she didn't have much choice other than to stay with me for most of the first day as I kept her leashed to me to avoid potty accidents and to head off any potential issues with the cat). Today when I let her drag her leash around in the house, Bessie decided to give chase to Allie, at which Allie turned and hissed. Bessie immediately stopped chasing and retreated, a good sign. They are still closely supervised when in the same room, but so far so good. Of course, Allie may think differently. Well, Allie, what are your thoughts on our visitor?
I'm still mad at you fer yesterday's photoshoot,
and now you bring a strange DOG in the house?
She likes to watch the birds out on the patio (which disgusts Allie, who thinks that window is HER personal television set), but also keeps a close eye on me and comes whenever I call her. Or sits pretty if I ask her to do that.
|There's birds out there!|
|Oh, is this what you want, Auntie Jean?|
Now can I turn back to the window?
I told ya I wanna be the ONLY princess in this house!
Bessie would really like to play with Allie and Mitzi, but seems to understand that ain't gonna happen. We'll fix her up with a play day with Cosmo and Lexi and maybe a few other friends during her visit.
|I don't get it.|
Why don't they wanna play wiv me, Auntie Jean?
I'm sure we'll have lots of blog fodder for the next couple of weeks, not to mention a ton of photos of one walking, woofing teddy bear:
|Hi! My name's Bessie, and|
I'd like to snuggle you!
