We arrived and it looked like it was going really well.
Except for a few scuffles she got along with Stephanie’s dogs. Actually it might have been more than a few but it wasn’t terrible.
She loved being in the country. Remember she’s been inside mostly and she’s never been outside off the leash.
Here she is having fun with Steph and two of her dogs and her cat. The other dog was too scared to go near her cause, ya know, the scuffles.
Here she is running.
She immediately made herself at home in the house.
Laura loved her too and the feeling was mutual.
And except for one little moment where she tried to kill Stephanie’s gardener the visit was perfect.
And I don’t use the term “kill” lightly.
I’ve known him for a long time. He set up my terrace and helped me a million times when I was at Steph’s.
The fact that he’s oh so easy on the eyes only adds to his cache.
He walked over and kissed me hello. His mistake.
I’ve seen dogs who snap before. Ray was excellent at that.
But this wasn’t a snap. It was attempted murder.
She not only jumped up to bite him, she ran after him leaping up to seal the deal.
I know what you’re thinking.
Mattie is sorry she got that dog.
Well let me tell you.
I don’t love her one bit less.
In fact I have this new pink lipstick that makes me especially attractive and the Debster can protect me from cads and bounders.
Of course I can give up any idea of remarrying or dating or even saying hello to a man.
I can live with that.
