This is where I was going to take a photo a day in 2012 but forgot to stop. I also write something random to give you an insight into the craziness that is Susan's mind.

January 14. Day 14. Fur friends
You know the saying that goes "Keep your friends close but your enemies closer"? Here's a photo of that playing out in my house this week. Rumple is very much used to being top dog around our place but there's a new kid on the block. We've been doing a spot of baby sitting this week for Rumple's "cousin" a Beagle pup called The Fed* belonging to my brother and his family. It would be fair to say Rumple has his tail out of joint. It would also be fair to say Rumple is a lover not a fighter. He as an age, height and weight advantage over The Fed but his first reaction on seeing the new fur friend was to run and jump on my lap - and stay there for a very long time. But as time has progressed, the mutual distrust has faded, a bit. They are not exactly inseparable fur friends but they do rather enjoy each other's company, most of the time. I have no desire to become a two dog family but The Fed is welcome to occasional sleep overs. He'll be even more welcome when he learns to do his wee-wees in the garden.
*Yes, The Fed is named after a certain tennis player my brother thinks is awesome. His rationale is that like other Beagles he will be a hero when he is young and will continue to believe in this hero status long after his prime.
