Recently I had the fortune of looking after a beautiful little dog.
It was life changing.
At first, I was a bit reluctant and not so sure.
Cubes was the same. She sat in her little puppy basket for the first couple of days mopping about. She was off her food and only took a couple of little licks of her dog food.
After a few days though we started to bond a little. Going for short walks, taking a couple of road trips, and having a little play time.
There were some things I really loved about little Cubes.
First she was a non barker. Over the month I think she may have made one little sound when she didn’t get her way. Otherwise she was quiet as a mouse.
Second, I really loved her walking style. She would pay no mind to other dogs, and would simply prance through the pack. She wouldn’t mix it up with other dogs, and she had this awesome little wobble walk that was a bit like showing off.
Then, there was the way she ate. Rather than eating like normal dogs, she’s manage to drag her little dried food balls all over the floor. How one dog could be so messy? I don’t know. She would intermittently come back from time to time scooping up a ball.
A great thing was her affection. A real velcro dog, she would roll up in a ball on my legs as I was watching the footy or taking a rest on the couch. She would start as a tiny thing and then progressively sprawl out. Dead to the world.
Finally, I was really reluctant to have her jump on the bed. However it became a ritual that every night she’d put her little paws on the side of the bed and stare at me with those little loving eyes. “Okay cubes” you can sleep at my feet, but that’s it! Okay!
By the end of the morning she’d be tucked under the sheets, all spread out, with her fish breath in my face, and expecting a tummy rub.
I don’t know why - but it was so life changing.
How one little dog could bring so much joy?
A big thank you to you, little Cubes. for giving Dr B so much happiness.
