Dog Dog and YoYoMa were leashed up and quietly led to Pumpkin early this morning. Steve hoped to avoid a noisy farewell scene and nearly made it into the van before Sachi's face popped up in the window barking up a storm. He continued well after the trio left for Scot's for a spa morning of grooming and catching up on neighborhood gossip. The Little Man's mad scratching at the window and howling (yes like a tortured mini wolf with throat issues) FINALLY caused Bella to leave my side to check on him. Puff in her oxygen crate slept through the Tyrant's tantrum and Taiko just moved his morning daydream dozing to the deck. When Steve returned a scant 10 minutes later without them, Of Course A White Dog let loose with another round of wailing before settling on White Dog's watching chair and going to sleep.
YoYoMa strutted in a little after noon perfectly floofed and blindingly white. He strolled slowly across the room to circle Puff and seemed shocked when she did not find his advances irresistible. He took a few steps and turned back as if to ask, "Are you sure? I am one HOT dude?" before he headed out to the kitchen to push around his empty bowl...reminding Steve that they HAD dashed off without breakfast.
White Dog jumped up next to me. I complimented her soft furs and glistening radiance. "I bet that feels much better, doesn't it?" Steve asked her, "all that itchy old coat gone."
Her response was to give him a long stare and then deliberately shift so that she could scratch her side.
