We’ve had cats for almost twenty years, but that experience hasn’t prepared us for a puppy! The adorable Loki is visiting for a while, and she has definitely made her presence known.
Every day I discover some pile of torn rubbish on the floor that was formerly one of my very valuable mementoes. It started very innocently with catalogs and sections of the newspaper, but then Loki discovered she had a taste for vintage photographs. Yes, I should have locked up these items. We’re in the middle of some minor renovations, and desk contents and other items are in boxes. Loki knows how to knock them over or root into them to select the delectable fading views of my ancestors, bypassing the modern photographs. Other items that have met her teeth are a wedding invitation, address book and a roll of masking tape, all stolen from my desktop. She found a loose piece of quarter-round woodwork trim in the kitchen and chewed both ends. She has pruned all of the indoor plants. Thankfully, we were able to move the plants outside before they were completely chewed to the roots.
But she’s so cute. Who can resist her when she jumps on the sofa, places her head on your lap and looks up at you, adoringly?
