Just a quick one this morning before I go outside for some yard work. While sitting in the den reading the news and my email I became aware that it got very quiet all of a sudden. I have gotten so used to Ruffin and Bessie playing everywhere and following me around while doing it. I turned around and spotted them napping on the floor behind me.
I put Bessie on the scale this morning and she weighed 28 LBS. I am still impressed how brave she has gotten outside even when she has no backup from one of the big boys. She firmly stands her ground and lets out her little puppy bark challenging everyone she sees. And when Ruff is out there with her he immediately begins to bark too, even when he doesn't bark when Bessie isn't with him. Bessie has definitely taken over Sassy's spot. She was the Early Warning System and the leader of the choir and Bessie is doing everything that Sassy did.
