Nanette: A Very Brave Dog

and how one little dog showed her life

Nanette and my New Socks

E-mail Print PDF

The picture below shows Nanette inclined to play for the first time since Bertie's demise in February 2011.

 When she first came to live with me, she had no idea of playing at all. Then when Bertie arrived RIP , she would watch him with a Ball or Socks or anything that would move!

 One day , she picked up his Ball and tossed it! She didn't do it again for several weeks and it was clear that it seemed a tad scary to her. It just so happens that I had a pair of splendid Angora Socks for Christmas which were on the table....low enough for Nanette to clearly see them. I came into the room to see her tossing them, tearing off the label and then sitting with them between her paws!!

 She has started to feel playful again after all this time......Bless her !!and I don't mind sharing my socks with her at all!!!!
