This was written on May 23, 2012, but I never published it, so I am doing it now.
We are moving on in our life, Rua & I. We have traveled almost 1700 miles to be with family and we are settling into our own little routine. We have gone from living in a quiet 4200 sq. ft. house overlooking a golf course, to spending most of our time in a 14′ x 10′ room that serves as our sleeping quarters, office and sewing room. Life is much different living in a household with 3 other adults and 2 other dogs.
When Rua is ready to get up, she’ll walk all over me to come up from the bottom of the bed to give me a “time to get up” kiss. I usually can convince her to just give me a few more minutes and she’ll snuggle up next to me. Then, someone in the house makes a sound, and that is all she can take. Now, the “time to get up” request has more of a sense of urgency. She will sit, stare at me, and start making a “erhhgg” sound. Fine, I’ll get up.
All three dogs are feed breakfast at the same time, so as soon as Rua gets up, the three of them are ready for breakfast. Here is a video on Breakfast time!
Once breakfast is complete, it is play time for the “kids”, Rua & Remy, while Mogie takes a nap. It is interesting how Rua does almost all of the play and Remy just entices her to continue.
Of course, Rua does need a nap or two during the day to keep up her strength.
And, then a little later, Rua and her best buddy, cousin, Remy, sit and wait for a toy to play with.
I love my Life with Rua!
