Freckles is test driving a new friend tonight.


Brutus is the neighbors’ new dog. He is going to stay this weekend but they are afraid because he has a reputation for not getting along with other dogs. We’ve had a group cuddle on the couch with no problem.

He did get in trouble for violating the most important house rule. He touched the bird cage. He was just curious and stood up to get a better look. The bird screamed at him and he was starting to back off when I started yelling. He cowered under the table until I gave him a hug to say all was forgiven. Everyone gets yelled at here on their first day for touching the bird cage.

He hasn’t met any cats yet but I think we’ll be fine.
