This is Rascal. We just love him so much. He has a mind of his own and you can't change it. The other day my husband was expecting company and we were discussing this and I told him I had to run to the store first. So Rascal and I drove to the store. When we got home I decided to leave him in the car not knowing how these people would accept him. He, however, did not forget the conversation. Usually I say "Now, you just stay here and I'll be back pretty soon" and he waits patiently in the passenger's seat. Not this time. I started to get out of the car and he tore ahead of me, up the driveway to bark his greeting at the visitors.
He, like many people's pets, runs the house. We wouldn't have it any other way.
