Lilly is famous for resource guarding Tom. She’ll even try to guard him from me. Our behaviorist gave us a plan to undo this icky habit, but Tom thinks it’s hilarious, so I pretty much knew it wasn’t going away.
I managed to get close to Tom on the sofa Saturday, before Lilly could attempt to intervene, so instead … she climbed on top of me.
I wish I had a photo, but when you’re squished between that boy you married and your sweet puppy girl, it’s hard to do much of anything, but enjoy a good snuggle.
Since it was yet another cold/snowy weekend, I was glad for the company and the warmth … even if, behaviorally speaking, it’s not exactly terrific to let Lilly think she’s guarding Tom in the process of sitting on me.
There was one saving grace. Ginko wanted to join the fun and curled up on Tom’s feet, and Lilly didn’t even bat an eye or show him a fang.
We sometimes joke that you know your family is just the right size, when everyone can fit on one sofa. I’m not saying all of us were equally comfortable, but I’ll take the togetherness time when I can get it.
