I don't like to anthropomorphise my dogs, but last night in the shower and most of the dogs had been put to bed in the utility. I could hear Dolly barking, which is unusual. She was lied calmly when I went out to see what was the matter and wondered if she sensed something with her daughter, Treacle. So I let her in and she sniffed and seemed to mother Treacle for a moment and then lied beside her. Our dogs are a very close pack and they happily mother each others offspring. Dolly being Treacle's Mother brings an even stronger tie and I think come the time and all goes well, these pups ain't going to want for mothering..
“The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you,but he will make a fool of himself, too.”
