Rosie's new friend
While we were lunching yesterday, Rosie The Labradoodle disappeared upstairs (unknown to us - this is something she is never allowed to do at home) and came down with a rather large soft toy in her mouth. It was a horse, almost the same size as she is. She was allowed to bring it home, and RTL and horsey have been inseparable since. She slept with it last night.
Our hope is that horsey will give her the companionship she misses when we all go to bed and she's left downstairs. We'd be delighted if she were to stop waking us up in the middle of the night by barking loudly just because she's lonely.
