Scarlett


Scarlett came to live with Dobby last August, as a puppy.  She is a Rat Terrier.  That's Scarlett in front in the picture.  Dobby's Mom and Dad wanted a small dog for him to play with.  Scarlett may get a little bigger than Dobby, but not much.  When she first moved in, Dobby wasn't so sure that he liked her.  However he tolerated her right from the beginning.  One of the first things she started doing was going after Dobby's toys.  Whatever Dobby was playing with, that was the toy she wanted.  Dobby would give it to her and go get another toy.  Then Scarlett wanted that one, so Dobby would give it to her and go get another one.  Dobby would put up with this for quite a long time, but he would finally have enough and would growl at Scarlett.  Scarlett would bark back, but quit the "Gimme Your Toy" game, at least until next time.  Scarlett and Dobby really enjoy playing Chase.  They will tear around the house and all over the back yard chasing each other.  Dobby really like this because he would chase the cats, but only Brudder would chase him back and not all the time.  Dobby is teaching Scarlett how to hunt mice in the grass in the back yard.  As a Rat Terrier, Scarlett is picking this up really fast.  I suspect that Brudder taught Dobby how to hunt mice, but I can't be sure. Scarlett and Dobby love to share naptime in sunspots, on the couch, in Mom's lap, anywhere.

                                      Scarlett just loves to play with Dobby.
                                      Stealing his toys is her favorite hobby.
                                                     They run and they play
                                                     And hunt mice all day,
                                      Then Scarlett curls up to nap with Dobby.

Oh, how sweet. They sound like so much fun together. I'm glad to know someone else who only wants a toy if someone else is playing with it.

Mom really likes the doggies, but it says there that one of them is a rat. Doesn't look like one. Sounds like they are a couple of cats playing chase and hunting mice. Are you sure that's the right picture??

Never mind Casper. Great limerick, they look cute together.
