The Dog's Tales: a series of posts in which Tilly has her say....
What's this coming through the woods, disturbing the quiet of our Morning Coffee spot?
It appears to be a Very Large dog. She isn't barking......but the question is, should I?
My Person makes the hand gesture that means: Just wait, Tilly. Be calm, be still.
The big dog passes quietly. I examine her prints. What breed has paws like this?
When the creature is gone, my Person settles down with her coffee thermos, notebook, and pen. "Good girl," she tells me as she offers me a treat. Good girl, I tell her I as I take it from her hand.
I munch on a tasty carrot stick, pleased. My Person's training is going very well.
