Bonding with The Dog

Sometimes I get little glimpses into what The Dog will be like when she's a little bit older, a little bit calmer.

Take now, for example: I am sitting down on the bed, writing, and she is laying on the floor beside me. She then sits up, puts her snout on my bedside and I scratch her head. For a while we sit like that, she with her eyes closed in enjoyment and me, idly scratching away, until I stop, lift my hand, she opens her eyes, smiles at me in that way only dogs do, and her tails taps on the floor, tap, tap, tap.

It's a beautiful moment, quiet and touching.

I like the way we're bonding, the more so the older she gets.
