The Boys Met the Girls

Pierre Westie: “SQUEEEE!! The most exciting thing in our entire universe happened last week! Lemme tell them, Bentley…let meeeeee!”
Bentley Basset: “Okay, you can tell them. Let me give them a little back story before you begin. Take a couple of deep breaths. I’ll be brief.
   We have two little humans called grandchildren that have begun staying at our house a few days each week. We’ve only met them under controlled circumstances because they’ve been tiny and we’re not used to such small creatures. We were social distancing before it was a thing.
   Since they’ve started coming around more often, we’ve gotten to know each other. Mom put us in the master bedroom behind a baby gate. The girls have gotten used to petting our heads and throwing us lots of toys. They understand that Pierre is talking when he barks and we understand that little girls like to sometimes scream and sing loudly.”
Pierre: “Let me tell them! I can’t wait another minute…

   Seriously, look at the smile on my face. This is the best day of my life! I love watching them play. They always include me too. We had a picnic one afternoon, but the food tasted like plastic. I didn’t want to hurt their feelings but the girls are no gourmet chefs!”
Bentley: “I’m so glad to be able to sniff them up close and personal. They smell great! It’s my job to protect them and I usually prefer to watch from behind the rocker. They do a lot of fast-moving and well, I’m a 12 ½-year-old Basset Hound. Fast isn’t my favorite thing to do so it’s safer for me out of the way of those little feet. Still, I love being close to them and sometimes just lay sprawled out on their floor."
Pierre: “Would. You. Look. At. This. Picture! She is rubbing my belly after only one day together. Honestly, does life get any better? She giggles so hard when she rubs my belly and I give her kisses. I run through the house with them and it is incredibly fun! They throw every single toy I own for me during the day and I’m teaching them to play tug o’ war! My tail never stops wagging.
Wow! She even fits in my bed!! We now understand what all the fuss is about grandbabies. Besides being adorable, they are absolutely, positively, unequivocally the best thing in our world!”
