just a quick update on tia's first night because OMG!
Carol · Sep. 3, 2014
she was shy but sweet for the first few hours.
then she became cheerfully interested in the mechanics of living in my bedroom.
its a lot to take in..little dogs everywhere, doing all sorts of things, it was interesting.
and of course she quite liked the seemingly never empty magical food and water bowls, she was fascinated by each refilling process whenever she happened to empty them, which really was quite a lot.
so what happened at 0445 hrs when i was sound asleep but all bowls were suddenly empty again???
take a guess...
forget it...you cannot possibly guess because i shit you not!
i woke up to the sound of an empty milk/water jug hitting the floor....i thought she was playing until i really watched her closely. she went back down to the floor, picked up the jug, carried it back up to the water bowl next to my bed and dropped it again as she tried to angle the open spout over the empty water bowl. she went back down again, picked up the jug and tried to pour it again into the empty bowl.
i was stunned...i watched her a couple of more times and then went out to the entrance way and got a full jug and filled up the bowl for her. once every bowl was filled up again, she curled back up next to mystic and me and went back to sleep. all was right in her new world.
she is without a doubt the most self actualizing dog i have ever met. she is amazing (and just a little bit scary.)
(and this reminds me...the entrance way shelves are full of empty jugs that need to be refilled.)
