Lady Darcy of Thistledown

In our house we have 4 dogs and 4 cats. One of those cats and dogs are Scotty's and mine. We have 3 children. One is living with us right now. She is in between selling her house and buying a new one. She brought in 2 dogs and 1 cat. We have a son in college. He has his 1 dog with him and his 1 cat with us. We have another daughter in college and she has her 1 dog with us and her 1 cat with us. Got the picture?

This is Lady Darcy of Thistledown. She gets to come to the shoppe. Because we have the dogs, Darcy is their alpha female and she just loves to get them all together and go for walkabouts. At first she took them back into the woods, but lately she has started to discover M-22. We are not thrilled with any of the walkabouts and many has been the times that I have taken the van and gone out to find her and her partners in crime. So, as a preventative measure, I have started to bring her to the shoppe.

Darcy makes a great shoppe dog. She loves the attention and she will quickly lie on her back, giving you the opportunity to scratch her belly. She also loves to lie on the rug by the front door. They are both the same color, so she becomes one with the rug.

So, until our daughter buys a new house and moves out - Lady Darcy of Thistledown will be my partner at the shoppe.
