Meg was one of those full of life dogs that one comes across sometimes. Always happy to see people (particularly if she thought she could persuade them to give her a big biscuit or even a little biscuit!!). Bouncing up to the door and barking to let the whole world know that a friend had come to visit her... not her humans you understand... just visit her!! Distinct shades of 'It's my Fuss Time so just give me a scratch and a rub round the ears... no I did NOT give you permission to stop!!' When we get together to make lace I'm usually the first there, closely followed by Jill, another lab owner who Meg was absolutely certain would have more than 2 'treats' in her pocket... one for as soon as Jill got to the door, and one at coffee time! 'Let me make certain you aren't telling me that your pockets are empty.' Lickety Split (my nickname for her) would tell you it was time for an apple, or a banana, or a walk, or a big biscuit.... and she knew the time as well!!
Anyway... she is with us no more... I'm sure wherever she is, she's bouncing up to people she hasn't yet met and saying... 'This ear first, now the back, now this ear, no don't stop... and are you absolutely certain you don't have a treat in that pocket??' and still looking for pussy cats in the gardens, they'd always gone over the fence by the time she realised!!
