So I’m asleep in bed this morning and Billy comes in saying “I was petting that dog. She came right up to me. Oh I got some video of her too.”
Billy is the one in this family that has “a way with dogs”. I am not so lucky but I am sometimes lucky enough to be able to ride on his coattails. I threw on some clothes, grabbed a bag of chicken wings (I need all the help I can get) and went outside. Sure enough, I too got in on the cuddling action. [Note: Scout likes to give full body hugs and lots of kisses.]
Seeing her up close for the first time, she was much smaller than we had thought. I had always figured her to be maybe a retriever bitch size but in fact, she’s more like a genuine LBD (Little Brown Dog). Even taking into consideration that she’s out of coat and underweight, she’s still much smaller than I thought.
One bag of chicken wings later, Scout now has Frontline on board (she’s got a few engorged ticks on her at the moment) and most importantly, I think she knows she’s got friends across the street. I guess I can take away my stalking chair set up behind the bush.
Here are some stills from the two vids Billy got of Scout (she’s eating some RMBs).
P.S.: I’m so happy!
