This here is my buddy, Lady. She's a sweet little goober girl of the Cocker Spaniel variety.
She doesn't look like she's built for speed, but she can run like the wind when she wants to.
Sometimes she is Stella's walking partner, but sometimes she's mine. (I have to tell you that she's a LOT easier to walk with than Stella is. Lady's not bossy like Stella.) When she & I walk together we like to round out our time with some chasin' & sniffin' in the backyard.
We're just sniffin' here, but we kind of look like we're ready to rumble.
Because she's so short I eventually give in and allow her easy access. It's gonna happen anyway so why not?
When our tongues are hanging like this, it means our booties are dragging and it's time to hydrate!
Lady finally turned to my girl and said exactly what I was thinking, "Are you gonna snap photos all day or get us some WATER, woman?!" Of course, lady says it more sweetly and with a smile on her face.
Just so you know, when Lady comes over it's like having a major summit negotiation at the U.N. Merv, my catbro, used to live with Lady until Lady started sleeping in his litter boxes and moving all of her toys into them. (A cat will never look at you as anything but his sworn enemy after that.) So, we have to keep our promise to Merv that he'll never have to deal with Lady again. When she comes over, we squirrel Merv away in his lair so he doesn't have any flashbacks of the old days. Just watching out for my Merv.
