oh how i have learned to love it when sandy dries her hair. she flips her head upside down and she is standing in that one postion so i can cuddle up and get lots of love. it took me a while to realize this. for years i was afraid of that noisey hot air thing. but whenever georgia, my best pal, would visit and sandy would dry her hair , georgia would go running into the bathroom full of glee. she would push next to sandy and wag like crazy. go figure. AND Sandy , for some reason , would reach down and pat her. who knew. i would come running in , as i always do when it involves sandy. but i was afraid and i would leave. i would sit and watch at a safe distance. sandy would always call me over and try to cuddle but not me. i was vey sure that noisey machine would be my ruin and hers if i didn't watch out. but this has been going on for a while. and i finally realized that georgia was getting lots of love i wasn't getting. so recently when i hear that blowy thing i strut on into the bathroom. cuddle up and , there it is. pats and cuddles. and it's true . it makes my tail wag and everything. i even let the air blow on me for a few seconds. not like georgia does. but who knows. i am so happy to have yet another way to get love. and sandy dries her hair a lot. even though it ends up all disheveled anyway. so from now on i am paying even more attention to what georgia does. let's see what else i can learn!! Georgia's mom has confirmed that she loves the hairdryer!!!

we have a great routine. every morning , after the walk of course, we jump into the car and drive to the starbucks. it's only 2 blocks away but we started this when i first arrived because i was too afraid and confused to be left alone. now we do it everyday, sandy opens the window all the way and i stick my nose out and bask in the morning aromas, which are very different from day to day. even the sights change though the route remains the same. sometimes there is a lovely orange glow from the sunrise and sometimes the clouds hide everything and often it is pitch black. but i love each ride. and on the rare day the sandy forgets to open the window right away i remind her by bumping it til she does. i bump it gently and look at her. she gets the message. at first she foolishly didn't realize how much these rides meant to me and after i became comfortable in her house she tried to get coffee on her own. well. i went crazy. i let her know. i paced and paced and would not settle down so she put me in the car and drove me around the block window opened and all. now if there is ever a day that we don't get coffee, and let me say these days are not often we always go for a ride around the block and i am very content.
we have tried to walk there. but i don't like being left alone outside yet andreally don't like sitting on the tile floor at the outside tables. it reminds of something bad and i start to shake. so, for now, we have our wonderful morning rides together and that means all is well with the world. my world at least.

oh i am so excited. it's another play date with Georgia. sandy got home home a bit early and brought georgia over to play and hang out. it 's easy cause she just lives across the street. i wait eagerly behind the screen door when sandy grabs the gold key from the rack and runs across the street. i stand looking out, to make sure nothing takes her away and when she comes out of the house across the street with georgia in tow i am always so happy. i wag all over. the tail is not the only thing that wags when i am excited. and when she slides into the house i sniff her, demurely of course, thoroughly. sometimes she is much to fragrant, doggy perfume i think. whew!! but often she has been to great places and i smell them on her and of course all her other canine pals. we greet each other and then we go off to our own corners and do our thing. i usually sit in the door way and watch the neighborhood. while georgia, as i mentioned previously, goes to the toys and picks through for the one for today. let me see today it is a rawhide ring. i love that because when she gets bored with it i grab it and it is esp. yummy .cause it's all soft and chewy. we love each others' company but we don't have to be glued to each other. it's just nice to watch her play with the toys. sometimes, i let her sit in my spot on sofa, as pictured, . i even let her snuggle sandy. and i don't let all the dogs snuggle sandy. but georgia is different. she helped me overcome my fears and trauma when she was just a tiny pup. i'll always be greatful for her help and companionship. but more on how she helped me another time. i am just happy that she comes over . today she is low key and just chewing and enjoying life. she has lots of energy and can be such fun to watch as she stalks the toys and tosses them about and makes sandy throw them. oh well enough. i need to sit at the door and guard!
