STARLIGHT-- A NEW DOG!
All of you know Starlight. Yesterday's blog referred to her as Baby Cujo-- a name she shares with Darby. Darby, take note-- Starlight is doing much better! Here she is with my grandson "Drill Bit." She's really amazing with children! Who would have known two and a half years ago that she would be so good!
She was sitting on the blanket with the baby and my daughter leaned over-- so Starlight jumped up and gave her a kiss. I know, you all have your mouths hanging open in stunned disbelief! Starlight loves to be held-- she HAD to be on the deck chair with me. She was perfectly content to lay behind me. :-)
And now she's watching the baby again-- check out those thighs. This is not an underfed baby. This is not from junk food-- it's all natural, just like God intended. :-) Notice the baby is in the xpen and Starlight and the rest of the dogs (NINE that day) were outside the xpen. Had to keep the baby from being run over.
Maximus' foster parents were at my house and Starlight loved them. She even got up to give David a kiss while Scooterbug sat on his lap.
But, a few night ago, my son in law and daughter were over. Starlight has barked at Jeremy for six years! But, that night, she came up to him to be picked up. Starlight has short legs and cannot jump on the couch. Jeremy said, "do I try this?" He picked her up and she didn't go "postal" on him.
