You may heard of Chiquita's fondness for her family of faux furry babies, and her habit of nesting on them and her pile of eggs" aka tennis balls like a little mother hen. She's an adorable little pooch and we, the barn crew, enjoy her antics during our shifts with the barn dogs.
But Ms Maude of the
squishy round-eyed face has also discovered things she's very fond of: playtime with friends; the sweet sun spots where it's not too hot for a
little sun-bathing; her comfy re-homed leather chair; and during my
last shift, she showed me her newest "simple" pleasure.
It happened while Maude was supervising my chores, making sure I filled
the buckets with cool fresh water, sweeping the dust-bunnies from the
corners of the kennels, and....just as I was about to fold the clean
laundry piled on the couch, I realized that I couldn't see or hear Maude
anywhere. So I called her, and then, rising from the midst of the pile
of laundry, up popped Maude's blocky head with a look of ecstasy on her
face. She had discovered the joy of laundry - warm, soft,
fresh smelling clean laundry...the.best.bed.ever!
look on her face as I gently removed the pile from under her reluctant
butt was priceless.
So I'm adding to Maude's wishlist for her new family - a request. She
would like a home where she will be allowed to "help" with the laundry,
