She didn’t understand that her bed was hers alone and it was her special place to rest so she didn’t get into it. When she did, she wouldn’t stay in it for more than a few minutes. Joe, Betty and I took turns in the evening sitting beside her while she was in it, stroking her and giving her treats when she climbed in until, eventually, she’d grasped that it was hers. Faith got on fine with Sky and Maverick, but Maverick suffered physical problems that left him uninterested in play. Lola was quick to show Faith the ropes, telling her: No, steer clear of him!
I used a baby gate to separate Faith from Nelly and Henry so they could all see but not get at each other. Within a day, Faith had calmed down and I was able to let her mix with my dogs under supervision. She had no idea how to play with toys such as tennis balls, or even with other dogs, and was only interested in food. Henry, though, as a young puppy, was determined to play with his new friend. He ran towards Faith, then ducked away at the last moment, gently yapping at her as if to say, Come on!
We sat down to lunch at two o’clock and afterwards opened our presents. The dogs had stockings filled with chews and were treated to slices of turkey. I’d never seen so many wagging tails! After that, the house quietened as I got a fire going and we settled in to watch a film. Maverick took his place by the open fire, Sky curled up on the sofa directly next to him, while Lola basked in the warmth nearby. Faith was happier in her own bed next to my chair, but Bertie and Kevin took turns on my lap.
