Poor Scouter

I've wondered if Scout is angry at us for bringing that big Galoot dog Digory into our household. Sometimes she gets grumpy at him because he's constantly wanting to play. Sometimes Digory will make a power play and try to be dominant over her--although she's gotten quite good at putting down those coup d'etats when they happen.

So today Kevin decided to take Digory to the dog park. Scout isn't all that crazy about dog parks--she's just not interested in the other dogs and absolutely hates the car ride there. But Dig likes to play and to run and chase, so we thought it would be fun for him.

Well, off Kevin went, and poor Scout barked for about 10 minutes straight. Then she whined straight for another 35 minutes or so. She's been whining intermittently since then, keeping vigil on the front couch looking out the window for Kevin's car. Every once in a while she'll come find me, clearly upset, and get some petting, but goes straight back to the couch.

So I guess she really does love him anyway.

Which him? The Digster, or Kevin? One hopes both.

Scout and Digory are totally married, you know. She loves him so much she hates him. ;-)
