At least once every day I see a scene like this.
Hickory spreading a little lovin' all over Maddie's face.
The first time I saw this I thought, "Awwwwww, how sweet.
Hickory loves Maddie"
And Maddie held so still....eating up the attention.
(Maddie is our 5 year old Newfoundland,
and Hickory is our 15 1/2 year old Norfolk terrier.)
And then I realized what was really going on here....
Hickory is actually cleaning up Maddie's "eye boogers", as I call them.
She spends about 15 to 20 minutes, licking both eyes and
also the slobber that Newfies are prone to.
Ok, so maybe it's not love,
but at least they have a mutual understanding!
