Betty made a friend during her recent travels.

Anita and Eddie got Ozzie from Midwest Labrador Retriever Rescue around the same time we got Louis. Oz was Superdog – tall, dark and handsome, with the ability to leap over tall fences with a single bound. He was also smart and irresistibly sweet.
Pickles is a friendly and confident dog, and pretty popular, too. But Addie and Grace aren’t buying it. Which only just makes her that much more desperate for their affection, attention, acceptance, approval, and any other fitting “a” words. To these girls, she’ll always be the pesky three month old puppy they
could barely tolerate couldn’t tolerate at all.
We finally captured her desperation on video (you can ignore the humans talking through it). Pickles is as determined as ever to wear them down (and she actually has, somewhat). Addie and Grace try to take the high road – ignore her and she’ll give up.
They are wrong. If it takes the rest of her life, Pickles will win their love.
In punishment/reward for her shenanigans (see the past three posts if you haven’t been following this week), Pickles was banished to the muck and mud of Pooch Park. Thank goodness one of her BFFs, Bella, was there!
We’ve been trying to get their play on film, but it’s near impossible to keep up with these girls. And forget about getting a picture of Pickles’ other bestie, Cosmo – he’s so fast, he’s just a blur!
Tomorrow: goodnight, sweet Pickles.
