Nala is an affable creature.
She likes most things
She likes other dogs
She likes her people
And crashing around in the water
And staring at squirrels
and wagging at cats, then looking away from the aforementioned cats and getting cheese.
She’ll eat anything you hand her at least once
And she’s a skilled and agreeable sharer of couches.
She startles and spooks very easily.
But her inclination is generally to investigate the scary thing, to give it a chance–once–and then to avoid it forever after.
[Speaking of scary things, keep your pets safe today! Here’s the advice of the always excellent Patricia McConnell on that subject. Have a lovely fourth of July.]
