I am dog mommy to a senior dog. A few years ago, she looked like this. Nowadays, she looks like this.
Last week the pup next door surprised her by sneaking up on her. Twice. She's a little old lady, and doesn't hear well. She's practically toothless too. He's just curious, but she turned around to find him sniffing her butt. She was mad as hell.
This week, I've heard a terrible sound from her. I dash in to check on her (reminded of Fred Sanford yelling "Elizabeth, I'ma comin!" ) and find her on the couch, stirred from her sleep and giving me a "what in the hell?" look. I calm myself, but I wonder. Is she dreaming of tearing Charlie from limb to limb, or is it that other thing?
It terrifies me.
