New Puppy

No, not our puppy. But you will recall the fence is down. This means that Puppy Riley has discovered she can bolt right into our yard and play! And we have cats!! And let me tell you that Leo and Junior are not impressed by puppy love. Leo holds his ground. He hisses and threatens. Meanwhile, Riley hops about and says, ‘Come on, let’s play!’ She doesn’t bark, but she really does want to play with the kittens. Junior makes a beeline for safety, which may include climbing a tree, dashing inside or running through a small spot in the fence.

The neighbors don’t seem to have much of a handle on keeping Riley contained. She’s a very smart dog. She comes to me when I call, and she knows I am going to take her home. She protests, but only for a second or two and then she follows me back. She invites me to play several times along the way and runs around me in a circle. Somehow, on this last visit, she managed to leave her collar somewhere at home so I couldn’t keep her next to me. She’s smart enough to listen though. Or maybe I’m just lucky she listened!

Leo is quite affronted by the situation. Sooner or later, Riley will get her nose clawed. Leo is somewhat used to dogs because he made friends with the Chi from the last neighbors. But when the Chi got into our yard, that Chi knew that Leo was boss. Riley isn’t too sure what kittens are all about. I’ve explained they aren’t “dinner” and they are “squeak toys.” Leo will have to finish the rest of the instructions.

Oh, life is always so interesting!
