Yesterday was a very different day from most of our days. No park run, just meeting Mummy’s friends all day in different restaurants. It was tiring regardless – Mummy calls it mental stimulation.
We started with Mummy’s friend Adelina from NYC, coming to visit. I met her when I was last in New York but she has never met George.
We were having lunch at Thomas Cubitt when I overheard her tell Mummy that she rather likes George’s size and that he’s very cute. That if she were to get a dog, George would be it.Does that mean he’s leaving? 😉
Aunty Vivienne commented that George is very handsome and adorably cute. Aunty Ngan told Georgie he is better behaved this time – the last time she saw us having a brawl. At least Aunty Ngan mentioned that I am very well-behaved and she gave me a hug.
Never mind, George can have all the hugs, I’m busy watching the delicious cakes and sandwiches being explained to the humans. Isn’t it all just food that you put them into your mouth and swallow? Yes, I know some are better yum-yums than others but this guy is delaying the process.There was a Yorkiepoo who was also at The Milestone conservatory! Meet Dolly – she’s only 4 months old and terribly curious about George.Dolly is a lot more poodle and George a lot more Yorkie.
Then who turned up but our friend Ellen, from Dubai! She is an old friend of ours but not a doggy hands on one – she doesn’t really know how to handle dogs. But even then she gave George a hug.
It’s ok with me. I’ve had love from the beginning. I’ve had lots of hugs from everyone before George came along. Now I just get left alone while he gets all the attention.
May’s comment: In our analysis of George’s appeal, Vivienne nailed it when she said that George appeals to the heart, the maternal instincts. Everyone who had met him feels they want to protect him because he is so dinky and eyes that yearn for love. He engages people immediately.
On the other hand, Darcy gives as much as she is loved. But she’s a confident dog in her own ways and stays within herself. She’s not an extrovert. But when she knows someone she will warmly greet them. If not, she’s quite aloof and does not engage unless there are treats involved.
