Watching Darby entertain herself all day (usually up to no good) I think back to the last few years of our dog Sierra who just recently went to rainbow bridge. My family keeps making the mistake of planning going out to eat or some social entertainment venue, when it dawns on us that we have a new puppy. "Go out's" have turned into "take out's". "Sleep'ins" have turned into "sleeplessness". Footwear has turned into playtoys, and I may not have to ever cut my lawn or pickup leaves again since Darby tries her best to ingest them all. I so look forward to the deep bonding and trustworthiness that will eventually come, and it makes me realize how much time and love was invested in Sierra. We could easily leave for the day and go boating while she was perfectly content to stay home and snooze all day. Occasionally she would "hit" both bathrooms and eat the outside corners of the toilet paper roll away leaving the user a very small surface wiping area. I think she was proud of her accomplishment and assured us that she did a chore while we were away. Now that I look back it's apparent what a small incident that really was. Darby is laying between my legs right now sleeping as I write this, and I'm sure she is planning her next moves as she sleeps and pre planning which pair of shoes to wriggle under the table to destroy. Old and young...You gotta love em......
