and Then There Was Alissa

Madame Roland said in the eighteenth century “Plus je vois le homes, plus j’admire les chiens” (The more I see of men, the more I admire dogs). - Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson in Dogs Never Lie About Love

No truer words have been said, by me!

I was writing about Sookie, but you know, with Sookie comes Alissa. I adopted Alissa when no one else wanted her. She was shy, very shy. Deemed "unadoptable". Sookie was just a goofy little puppy when Alissa came into my house. Sookie wasn't afraid of anything or anyone. Alissa slowly followed suit. The two are nearly inseperable. But yet, Alissa, having outlived her shy, timid ways, has developed her own personality. This personality is bold, but cautious. She bark, and growls at the appropriate times. Never at people in the house, but people walking by the house, alone or with a dog on a leash. Even still out on our daily walks, Alissa wants to meet & greet!
