Knowing her visitors were from Florida, she ran and got her alligator so they would feel right at home!And her mommi thanked her with a few treats.But then, Ms. Asta kind of suspected they might have brought her something special -- and indeed they had: a fox!!! (Of course -- what else would a wire fox terrier need???)She set right to making its acquaintance, But then, she discovered there was something else: a monkey. And she made his acquainatnce as well.
In the meantime, her pawrents and Jake and Just Harry's pawrents started talking, and talking, and talking -- and they accuse you dogs of barking too much!!! But it seems they all felt as though they had known each other for ever -- and just had lots to catch up on.
After more conversation (and delicious wine), they decided it was time for dinner -- and went to a very cool Italian restaurant (with a distinct terrier profile). Had I not been so enamored of the river, I might have joined them in the favorite, linguine di mare.... but who knew? All I did knew is that my charges had an amazing time, and were trying to decide how they could live in Florida and Manhattan at the same time so they could spend more time with such warm, hospitable, fun, creative people (and dog).After dinner, it seems a stop for ice cream was involved. And then, before they all said good night, the three ladies sat for a spell in the hallway and shared a few secrets!!!Yes, indeed the highlight of the trip. The only thing missing???? You guessed it. My clients, Mr. Jake and Mr. Just Harry!!! Indeed, they are sorely missed -- but my charges have a business meeting in Orlando (Days Eight and Nine). So sadly, we have a few more days to go before they'll be home -- and I'll fill the time with more about Days Five Six, Seven, Eight, and Nine.!!
