Xena Velvet Ears

I got this picture of Xena from the memorial post when she went to the Rainbow Bridge last April. I think it's a lovely picture of her and it shows her sweet personality. I believe that Xena was born in her forever home, to her dad Thor and her mom Sweet Britches. By the time the Meowers from Missouri started blogging, she as already an old dog and spent most of her time sleeping, so she doesn't appear on the blog much. She loved napping in sun spots and I get the impression that seeing a nap pile in a sunspot with Xena in the middle was quite common. Xena loved the kitties and they all loved her. They would sleek up against her and she would give them little licks. She never chased them or barked at them at all. She would chew up any cat toy that she found, but that's just part of being a Labrador. Both of her ears were very soft and velvety, but I went for one ear in the limerick for the rhyme.

                                   Xena had a velvety soft ear.
                                   Just to stroke it gave her folks cheer.
                                            She loved all the cats
                                            And they would say, "That's
                                   Our beloved Xena.  Let's purr in her ear."
