Paisley has arrived for her brief stay with the Webners, and immediately she upset the well-oiled rhythms of our household. For one thing, she follows Kasey around wherever Kasey goes — no surprise there, dogs are pack animals and Kasey’s the leader of the pack — and Kasey clearly finds it unnerving. At heart, Kasey’s a loner . . . which is why seeking some solitude behind boots and shoes seems like a good idea. And, of course, when tiny puppies are around you worry about accidents, and chewing, and stains, and curious little pooches getting trapped in inaccessible areas where they can’t get out and you can’t get in.
Who’d have thought that an impossibly cute eight-pound bundle of fur could cause such chaos?
Today the upset will end, as Paisley heads up to her new home in Hamtramck and Kasey gets to get some sleep and slide back into her leisurely lifestyle.
