I laid out the hooked rug I am working on, just to see how it looked, and Gracie immediately settled down on it. I don't know if that's a stamp of approval or a statement that I should be paying attention to more important things.
Mischa also got in on the act. At least they didn't poop on it. I had that happen once when I took my previous pup Tasha into a gallery where I had a solo show. And yes, right in the middle of the carpet she did her business. Keeps me in my place, that.
