Our original "baby" is a 7 year old Maltese named "Lillian Elenore"; Lilly or Lil for short. That is, unless Leanne is around in which case the dog is addressed only by her food nickname, "Meatball". Anyway, Lilly's never been known for being particularly welcoming to guests nor is she very pleased to share her parents' attention with others. We were a little concerned about how she would react when we brought Josie home but we were relieved when she decided to ignore her. However, we seem to be observing a hint of passive-aggressive jealously...
Fits me just right
Move your meat, lose your bouncy seat!
What are you looking at? I'm working on my skills and abilities.
It's not as though Lilly doesn't have her own accommodations. She has not one, but TWO dog beds! One for lounging in the family room, the other for soaking up the sun by the window (Lil likes to get her tan on). Prime real estate all to herself!
Today, Lilly desperately sought the attention of Sharon, Josie's physical therapist...
Hey Sharon - check out my superb head control!
And this is a pretty standard scene when Travis gets home from work and goes to greet Josie...
Eh, she's overrated. Pay attention to me!
A picture is worth a thousand words. Check out this cold stare; you can cut the hostility with a knife!
Poor, poor Lillian.
