So what is this all about? In the last few days, Booker has let a little rumbling growl go when Samantha walks into the room. She is a quiet, soft-treading young human ... perhaps she startles him a bit.
Sometimes at night, she shows up next to my bed, me half-asleep and gives me momentary heart pause.
I have asked her to announce herself when she enters a room, even a quiet "hello, Booker" will work. So that he doesn't feel unsettled or threatened by her creeping presence. We don't want this to get to be a habit.
Besides, Samantha is the "distributer of treats." She taught Booker how to "lay down" "shake" and is working on "roll over." The "roll over" is a difficult one, as Booker has no interest in being belly up to get a treat!
