Meet Minnie. She is currently a houseguest after flying up from the Cape with Son-in-Law’s mother for the recent sad events.
Of course, as you can imagine, it is a tremendous inconvenience having such a massive animal blundering about the place. (In fact, Mac cat and the other dogs didn’t even notice her arrival for some time, and when they did they responded with a highly excited, ‘Ho, hum … yawn!’ I think little Gemma is rather chuffed not to be the tiniest four-legged resident any longer, though.)
The kids need to be reminded, from time to time, that she is not a toy. They would love to carry her round permanently. She is wonderful, though. Not a yap or a snap in sight.
Her biggest adventure here to date has been when she tried to run across a pondweed-covered fishpond. I waited to see if she could fish herself out 🙂 and she managed on the second try. De-pondweeding her was a mission, though.
