I am now a happy person that shares her home with two dogs. Miss Sophie has moved in with us full time. She is a Miniature Pinscher, 6 years old and just a delight to have around. Zuni seems to be happy with her but she does have moments of jealousy. We took our first trip in the van with our puppies and it was great. Miss Sophie has a calming effect on Zuni so when the furnace kicked on Zuni stayed on the bed and didn’t try hiding under the passenger seat. Mom and I went to Phoenix for the weekend. This week we are planning a trip to southern Arizona.
The only trouble I had was sharing my little itty bitty bed. I put Miss Sophie’s bed between mom and me. Then I put Zuni in bed with me. It was a cold night and Miss Sophie decided that it would be much warmer under the covers with me. I don’t know how it all came to be but I ended up laying half on the dog bed with Miss Sophie curled up next to me. So I threw the dog bed toward the front of the van and pulled my pillow over. That night I slept in a question mark position to accommodate the two dogs in bed with me. The next night I was able to put the dogs in positions that would allow me to sleep like a normal human. I am curious to see what will happen on our next trip.
I have had a few unusual occurrences. I mentioned it once and the reaction from the folks who read this blog was interesting, so much so that I never mentioned it again. I have had long discussions with someone who knows and understands. Someone who knows what to say when I call and say I see the color brown. She recommends that I find someone who deals with dogs and what they see. Dogs see or sense things that humans cannot. I have a dog that watches something that I don’t see. She can stare for minutes at something or she will move her head like she is watching something moving. Tonight she came running into the house after her walk only to stop suddenly and give a low growl. Then she stood still for over a minute watching something that I couldn’t see. So what does she see?
Is this something I can google?
Life is interesting.
