Vinodog 1 still has her 'funny half-hours' when she springs about like a dog half her age, zipping through the shrubbery and glancing back at me now and again, as if she is challenging me to chase her. Of course, she is exhausted afterwards. Sometimes, she forgets what she began barking about and just keeps barking until I distract her with a dog biscuit. And I didn't think it was possible, but she has become even more attached to me: she'll pace about, in a panic and wide-eyed, looking for me if I leave the room. She is a great companion.
Happy birthday V1!
