Old dogs and new tricks

In a dog’s life
A year is really more like seven
And all too soon a canine
Will be chasing cars in doggie heaven

It seems to me
As we make our own few circles ’round the sun
We get it backwards
And our seven years go by like one

Shadow is settling in very nicely. She acts like she’s always been here. It makes me wonder what’s actually going on between those floppy ears of hers. She seems perfectly content laying here next to me on my couch in my room, even though for the last 8 years she wasn’t allowed on the couch, or in anyone’s bedroom. Although maybe that’s just something she’s secretly always wanted to do, and this is heaven for her. Who knows?

After she had been here for less than a week, she went back to her former home for a week because I had to go up to New Jersey. She seemed ok with that, too.

But I know that she’s not completely empty headed. Every day that I come home without Sarah, she obviously is looking for Sarah, and is quite irritated with me that I didn’t bring her with me. 🙂
