Remember Oriana? You would have had to have been a reader of mine from my AOL Journal days. She stayed with us for a few months when my son and Kate lived in an apartment that only allowed one dog (they have two...Kyuss, was older, calmer). You'd know all about the operation that saved her life that caused us so much worry and the days she and Rupert romped through the halls of our second floor Green Street apartment...playing and then not playing. Rupert and Ori tolerate one another for short periods of time, neither one willing to let the other be in control for very long. But they do love one another, always happy to see each other again when they've been apart. They love to play. Kyuss, the old man of the three of the dogs, usually lets them have their fun and just finds a quiet corner.
We admit....we wondered how Oriana would adjust to having little Gwen around. But we knew Oriana is totally devoted to Kate and Darek, as she is to us, too.
And, as the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words.
