We have two very special dogs this week for our Wag Your Tail Spotlight Dog!
Their human Margaret shared with us:
Honey is a maltese shitzu x toy poodle, who was found tied in a garbage bag, and who joined my family in November 2013. Elsa is a maltese shitzu x ???? (from the set of her front legs it wouldn't surprise me there's pug in her lineage) who I originally agreed to foster in April 2014, but after Honey and Elsa became inseparable, I adopted.
One day the two were engaging in their favourite wrestling match and I attempted to step over them. I lost my balance and began to fall, and whilst I was on my way down I saw two furry bottoms quickly disappearing out the back door. I lay still for awhile, assessing what damage if any the fall caused, and during this time saw two furry faces poke through the magnetic screen at the back door, looking first at me, then at each other.
After they'd obviously decided that the situation required their attention I found myself covered in "I'm sorry" and "I'll make you better" licks, so much so that getting to my feet was made even more difficult (I have a disability so it's not easy getting up in any case). Fortunately I didn't suffer any serious injury, but I've noticed my two girls don't wrestle around me anymore, they wait until I'm seated.
