Mystery Solved!

It's no secret that Brodie suffers untold abuse at the hands of Fiona. She loves to tackle him and give him big cuddles. She likes to examine the inside of his nose, mouth and ears. She thinks it's funny to hold onto his tail. He has lots of fur that is easy to grip onto to help with standing up. Today I found her sitting on top of him playing with something while he just lay there with a long suffering expression. He follows her around and gets up and goes to her room when he hears her wake up from her nap. He LOVES her, and until now, it wasn't entirely clear why...

Well... mystery solved...



(I'm trying putting the large videos on youtube, and then making them accessible here. We'll see if it works. If it's having trouble playing, try pausing it and waiting until the fainter red bar is further along, then start again. It's only 50 seconds long so it shouldn't take too long.)

Ahh isn't that sweet. My mostest favorite part was when she fed Brodie and then proceeded to use the same hand to feed herself. There was an obvious lack of hand sanitizer and everything. Babies and their dogs, soo cute.

This is so cute! And I agree with Lori, the best part has to be when she feeds Brodie a few pieces then feeds herself with the same hand. I'm definitely in the camp that thinks germs help to toughen babies up!

Hi Lori and Michelle! I'm strengthening her immune system - if there's ever an outbreak of dog flu, we're going to be totally fine!

I must remember this video if Fiona offers me any of her food! It's no wonder Brodie loves her.

That video is so cute! They will always have a great relationship! Every child should have a Brodie :)

Hi Mum! You need to be cautious. Always assume whatever she's offering has been dipped in ketchup, dropped on the floor, licked by Brodie, and stood on. Yum.

Hey Cathy! He's a good doggie. But having an Ashley is pretty awesome too!
