the little girl is going through puberty, and got her first you-know-what. so the poor thing is feeling awfully miserable and needy, and only quite perks up whenever ruby is around so pixie can growl at her and stare menacingly at ruby. it’s a love hate relationship the two of them have, a little show they put on whenever others are around. when she’s alone with ruby she’s totally fine, and even goes up to her for treats and pats.
anyway, she’s obviously miserable (bronco is following her like a shadow and sniffing her butt) and i think he’s making her feel worse. so she’s taken to following me around, everywhere i go. here there and everywhere. underfoot.
she’s looking a little grimy cos she was due for her bath.
