Thursday Challenge: Friends - Smokey and Tootsie

Tootsie was a nervous little Rat Terrier who was with me about 10 years ago.  She was perpetually cold natured and was always looking for something warm to snuggle up to.  When Smokey the unflappable Pit Bull Terrier came to live here he was the answer to her prayers.When he laid down on a cushion she was right beside him or better yet partly on top of him.   If he laid down on a cooler tile floor her favorite resting spot was perched with her hind feet on top of him and her front feet on the floor. 

Smokey was remarkably tolerant of his little friend.   I say they were friends.  If he had objected to her sitting on him he could have objected.  As it turned out she was his little buddy and he was fine with her using him for a cushion.  He was very patient with her but when he needed to get up he just stood up she rolled off.  Now Tootsie has gone to dog heaven and Smokey is an only dog.  I think he likes it that way.

Hello !
Même si Tootsie était son grand ami jadis, je pense que maintenant Smokey apprécie d'avoir Bill et Susan pour lui tout seul, non ? ;-)
Many kisses.

Sorry for your loss. They look like a sweet pair. I'm sure Smokey is lonely without her.

Sorry about your loss Bill. Darn dogs just don't live long enough. We have three and they are all friends, kind of, we three very different personalities.
