My Tropical Dog

Here's the culinary evidence:
  • She luuuves white rice with black beans (a Cuban staple & my favorite food in the whole world)

  • She likes ice cream

  • She loves coconut ice cream.

  • She likes mangoes. (just like Bobby)

and today I can add:
  • She likes kiwi fruit.

That's my girl. :)

Yesterday was a momentous day for Lola. She played "chase tails" with the other doggies at daycare! Yay! Lola has played with the folks at daycare, but not with the other pups. Oh, she has lounged about with other pups and watched other pups play, somewhat unsure of how to join in (or barked at them to chill out). She has even run around outside. But yesterday, finally, she joined in the fun. She chased tails and they chased hers. Yay!

To Sleep, Perchance to Dream

I love watching Lola sleep, partly because I know why she sleeps. Sometimes, she is poopy-tired after a day of play at daycare or after playing with me. On warm days, she likes to take a nap after our afternoon walk. A nap is also good after a particularly satisfying meal. Sometimes, she falls asleep while I rub her belly, and she will sleep with legs in the air.

I have seen her dream, too. Her legs twitched a little and I'm certain she was chasing something in her dreams. Was it a squirrel? A bunny? A kitty? Or was she just running free, at full gallup, the way we sometimes do together?

When she sleeps, it is because she is happy.
