Living with Darby and Pumpkin has taught me that I'm lucky I only had one child. I love both of my dog-girls, but... I can't help recognizing that Darby is smarter, quicker to learn and more athletic than Pumpkin who is prettier, more playful and more even-tempered than Darby. If they were human children, I think I would struggle constantly with how to acknowledge the strong points of each girl without slighting the other. I think it would be very difficult.
Another time, I'll tell you some stories about how smart The Darbs is, but for now, I'm going to show you how pretty Pumpkin is.
I'm glad my dog-girls can't read!
