Blogger Virginia is (definitely) not a doggie person, but to help out her precious niece (who very much is a doggie person) she relocated for a few days to her sister’s home to look after her niece’s precious Chihuahua, Beast (affectionately called “BB.”)
BB is 17 (quite old in doggie years) and needs lots of extra TLC. Hence the reason great-auntie v looked after him while sis Shere & Woody (her husband) went to visit niece, Mo, who recently moved to California.
I usually am not (not not not) into doggies, but BB is so precious he snuggled right into my arms and heart.
The first night I tried to put him on a doggie bed next to my bed, but he waved his paws up at me like, ‘are you kidding, aren’t you going to let me up there with you?’
I couldn’t resist his pleading eyes. Up he came… and somehow crawled out of his doggie blanket and snuggled under mine during the night.
We had a grand time, altogether, despite yucky rainy weather. Hanging out on the weekend watching Netflix, reading books, going outside to look at the stars (after the rain) – BB kept auntie v company.
After my sis returned and I traipsed on back home, I must confess – non doggie auntie v misses that doggone doggie, BB!
grace, peace & powerful pawprints
