Remember that it is a Pet Eat Pet world? Since our dachshund, Sara, ate my son’s pet mouse, Shadow, the tears have stopped. When the mouse cage is cleaned, the two surviving rodents are kept in the bathtub while the Weiner Sisters bark like crazy by the door. Sara occasionally scratches, begging for another fresh mousey meal. Today when Daniel, who took Shadow’s death the hardest, was cleaning the cage he took an extra step to make sure the Weiner Sisters did not get near his beloved (disgusting, smelly, beady-eyed) mice. Cute.
However, I remain a devoted fan of Sara’s team.
