Although the last week started off slowly for Louis Wellington, he did get some rather exciting news yesterday :)
First things first....
TEN and Louis have a special bond that I am not a part of. It pains me greatly, but I have accepted it as so. Louis loves me dearly, but if TEN is around I become a second class citizen. Upon trying to determine why this is I was flipping through some recent pictures.
Could it be because they both enjoy car rides?
Or because they both enjoy naps on the couch?
And in the first few days after that?
Or, perhaps it is because TEN comforted him after he had his "snip snip"? Clearly only something a man can understand...
Even now, he prefers that TEN hold his lead when we go on walks.
I tried to have a conversation with Louis about this last night. And to explain that I'm so glad he loves TEN, but that he can favor his mummy sometimes too. And for example, that it may be nice if he sits on top of me when watching TV as well :)
And then....he rolled his eyes, sighed deeply and flung himself down on the opposite end of the couch.
I have no words.
In trying to prove to Louis that I am the more preferable "parent", and that I do more for him than anyone else in the whole wide world...I mentioned that I'm pretty sure we have located his sister/litter mate. One of BFF's clients has a girl westie pup that we are 98% sure is Louis sissy!! Isn't that exciting?!?!?
We adopted Louis from a land far, far away. A place so out of the way, and obscure, that when I list the location of Louis' birth people often look baffled. They have never heard of such a place. And then just yesterday BFF's client showed her a picture of her westie. And BFF remarked "my goodness, that looks just like my BFF's westie called Louis!"
One thing led to another, and there you have it. Louis' long lost sister has been found! (well, we think so anyway. just waiting to confirm that they have the same birth date) Now, here's the question....
Will Louis recognize his sister AS HIS SISTER when he meets her? Or, will he have accepted TEN and I as his family and have no recollection of his westie parents and siblings?
I can't wait to find out!
