Improving her manners

I took Sassafras for a walk today, and we met up with another dog. They've encountered each other before, and snapped at each other. Today, they sniffed real close, but stayed civil. I was amazed. I put it down to her getting used to having Cuthbert in the house.

The social leopard is himself acting a bit nicer. He bites less and wants to wallow me more. Now, if he and Sassy can just repair their relationship . . .

Ah me, the Reverend Doctor Dolittle, Pet Therapist.
