But, it was obvious that she enjoyed her stay at the Bed and Biscuit Inn, because she kept alternating between happily wiggling and nuzzling me and doing the same thing to Michelle. She was pronounced a "real angel" which I'm not entirely sure was the truth. She made real progress during day care play times, too--still having trouble when first introduced to a new dog, but getting more comfortable all the time and playing long and hard with the dogs she got to know.
Unfortunately, I forgot to bring my camera in with me to catch a photo of Darby and Michelle, so these photos of my niece's dog Nico, will just have to do!
Nico is a seven year old English Springer Spaniel that my niece and her husband adopted from a rescue organization. She is a lovely dog!
As you can see, she loves to snuggle. (Maybe she can give Darby some lessons!)
We frequently joked about Nico needing to chill out. My little nephew needs to do that, too!
Nico and her humans live in the Virginia countryside. A beautiful area with rolling hills--just the perfect place to take long walks in the cool, fall air.
It is good to be back home with my Darby-girl, but I miss my extended family and wish we could get together more often.
