The three of us, that is the six of us, spent about an hour together in the beautiful early fall sun. Bella showed some concern, but also interest. Although there were times when she wanted to go back inside, no doubt to her safe place on her bed in my room, her eyes were also gleaming more brightly than I have seen them before. How would you feel if two handsome suitors showed up at your door and vied for your attention?
Ozzie has a large fenced yard where he lives with Joan. He is interested in company while Joan is away at work. I am sure that he was whispering invitations in Bella's ear. After a satisfying visit, and a little tour around the yard, I let Bella return to her safe place. Did the special brightness in her eyes portend her awareness of new possibilities? Would she enjoy the companionship of her own kind? Surely a chance to romp with a friend would be preferable to days spent in the corner of my room. Bella, can you tell me what you want? Were you telling me with your bright, open, shiny eyes?
