I have been feeling under the weather for a little while and not paying too much attention to Ruby (or our blog). I feel badly about that but I am also feeling bad so there isn’t much I can do.
The roles have changed a bit this week and it’s very sweet. Ruby seems to know I don’t feel well because she hangs at my side and is very attentive. She hasn’t been allowed on my bed up to this point because I am basically allergic to her! But I have given her access now because I am spending so much time there. At night she is not allowed up but nap time is fair game. And I am napping a lot. By now she probably thinks it’s her day-bed. Fortunately she knows her space and is a pretty good sharer! She sleeps soundly and isn’t constantly scratching and licking so I am sleeping well too with her there.
Right now she is laying at my feet quietly and she is precious. I was never sure if those words would ever be used in the same sentence with Ruby! We are making progress. Even so, I don’t recommend getting sick to bond with your puppy.
So this begs the question: Do I allow Ruby up on my bed even after I start feeling better?
