We were just all just hanging out on the floor.  The second picture is not what it seems.  You see, Darby is quite insecure, and Sweetie is her security blanket.  She does this all the time, just crawls over Sweetie and straddles her, making sure Sweetie doesn’t get any more attention than she.  I’ll never understand why Sweetie is so darn patient with her, but she just is.  It’s really endearing and sweet.

I just weighed her.  She’s three pounds exactly.  She is just so darn tiny, it’s amazing she made it to ten years old growing up with two boys.  But I have to admit, they have always protected Bella and made sure she remained unstepped upon.  She’s lost a few ounces lately (sounds odd to say).  So I’m taking her to the vet on Monday to get her yearly checkup.  I say that like I’m on top of things.  Actually, she doesn’t see the vet much at all, only for the occasional rabies needed for licensing so the animal shelter doesn’t come after me.  But yearly shots and the occasional anesthesia for teeth cleaning I tend to shy away from because of her tininess.  She has always been so sensitive to all of that.   She’s also got a bum back leg, something common in small breeds.

Oh, my little girl is getting up there, but still a big stinker.  She will always run the show around here.

These past couple of weeks, Southern California hasn’t been blessed with the sunny skies we are so used to.  So when the sun came out yesterday, Sweetie took full advantage.  First she got herself a little haircut and then made her way outside to soak up the sun.

Here’s an older picture of Darby all clean and poofy.  Looking at her today, I’m thinking I need to call Alicia any day to come over and make her presentable again.

Beggin’ in unison.  How can you deny these two cuties anything?  SO spoiled.
