Claire has lately been slightly obsessed with the dog liking her. It’s not that Sparkle doesn’t… but, y’know. Dog’s aren’t exactly rational, are they?
I suppose it’s only fair: the dog technically was here first — but for about six and a half years has been playing second fiddle to her human replacement. Some of the kid jealousy peeked out this morning when I was cuddled up on the couch with Sparkle, and we had a little re-adjustment of seating positions. “Why does Sparkle never want to cuddle with ME!?” Fortunately the fickle natures of dogs and children collided for a few brief moments of peaceful co-existence on a snowy Saturday morning.
