So my mom called to cheer me on, and she’s very excited about Blogathon and all the money we’re raising. This means you should all pledge. Because trust me when I say that you wouldn’t want to argue with my mother. 😉
Anyway, as I’ve said, Ms. Pup is very friendly, but not just to humans. She adores cats and rabbits. Apparently, she was raised with them, and thinks they are her buddies. They disagree strongly. I have actually seen her give her “play with me!” bark down a rabbit hole. You can imagine how successful it wasn’t. And really, she does not want to eat the rabbits. I bunny-sat for a week once, and she fell madly in love with the rabbit in question. She play-bowed and sang to him, and when I took him out to cuddle him, she gave him kisses. (He was an eight-pound rabbit who was used to dogs. This was one bad-ass bunny!) When he put his head down to eat his food, she thought he was play-bowing back and went nuts. Silly dog.
She behaves similarly with cats, who are far more likely to beat the crap out of her. Ms. Pup is a lover, not a fighter.
