Doggy Schadenfreude

I am saddened to have to report that Robinson is taking Zoe's death very well indeed.

He has been downright perky, and seems more relaxed than he's been for a while.

Zoe was a darling, but she could be quite unpleasant to Robinson. As a friend of mine said, "They don't call them 'bitches' for nothing!"

Robinson is a sweet, unassuming, gentlemanly dog, and couldn't stand up to her. I think he's glad she's gone.

And he's been very attentive to me, as only a sweet dog very closely bonded to his person can be when his person is distressed. As I have been. I'd forgotten just how effing painful grief can be.

Zoe may have been a bitch, but I do miss her.

But Robinson and Tabitha are my creature comforts.

And you! Thank you for all the messages of condolence. They really mean a lot.

Well, Robinson is allowed his p.o.v. after all. Glad to hear he's comforting you, though.

I'm glad Robinson is being a comfort, even if he does seem a mite cheerful about the reason for your grief.

Hmmm...what to say? Zoe *was* a bitch - my boys agree. I'm glad Robinson is taking her death so well. It's nice that he and Tabitha can be opportunistic about the whole situation.
