No matter how the dynamics of the family change, one thing remains sacred here.... Snuggle time... It starts right after supper, after i finish the dishes...The dogs start to sit around and stare at me with that "let's go!" look. Gipetto will actually walk into the living room, and turn around to give me that "come hither" look...It is time to go and sit on the couch together and snuggle while i crochet or knit my next project. This has been a night time ritual ever since the three boys came to live with us, some 15 years ago, and has continued to the present. Little Polly doesn't really understand the whole concept, but already as i sit down and we work out which of the adult dogs gets to sit closest to me (we try to take turns) she is already starting to climb up my leg to get up on the couch with the rest of the family... I wonder if the dogs know i love this ritual as much as they do?
