Nattie finds her Inner Cairn


Recommended Posts

We adopted Nattie (a retired breeding bitch) from a breeder last December.  She is the polar opposite of Buffy, our previous Cairn, in the sense that she is quiet and sometimes 'polite' to the point of being timid.  It took her a while to warm up to everyone and realize that she now had her very own family, but she has made quite a bit of progress.

This weekend she finally found her Inner Cairn and took her rightful place.  DH was napping in the recliner yesterday, loosely covered by an afghan.  Nattie knew it was time for her walk so she began jumping on the chair and nudging DH, trying to awaken him.  He ignored her.  After several failed attempts she decided a more forceful approach was needed.  She grabbed the afghan and pulled it off the chair.  Sure enough, that worked and she got her walk.😂

Good going Nattie. I wish Sassy was a little more forceful like that.

If I am taking a nap on the couch, Sassy will give me anywhere from 20 to 60 minutes and then she will lightly whimper. I notice, nod off again and seconds later another whimper. This can go on for another hour. It is almost painful to me. She needs to get me up the first time. She needs some lessons from Nattie.
