Duncan's boss's dog, Bess, accidentally got herself knocked up and we were the beneficaries of a new canine friend. Part Kelpie, part Border Collie (like Maya), the plan is for Gypsy to become a working dog.
Gypsy is FULL ON. Whereas Maya was terrified of her own shadow, Gypsy will run up to you, jump all over you and lick you to death. She has no fear and lives each moment filled with feverish excitement. Maya pees when she's frightened. Gypsy has trouble controlling her bladder and she does little wees everywhere because it's just all too exciting (thank goodness she is an outside dog).
There is one member of the household who does NOT appreciate the new arrival. Ebony let the pup know with a hiss and a swipe that she will not tolerate being chased, cornered or barked at. Consequently, puss has been spending an increasing amount of time indoors.
|Why, why did you get another one of those THINGS?!?|
