The Love of a Havanese
I had major surgery 2 weeks ago so I haven't been on the forum lately. Although my surgery was fairly complicated, my surgeon does not believe you can get well in a hospital!! Too many germs, interruptions, uncomfortable bed, rough sheets, etc. So 2 days after my surgery he sent me home to recuperate. From the time I stepped in the door, Cocotini would not leave my side. She has always been a velcro dog that followed me around, but this was different. She assigned herself as my protector. If I was sitting in my leather chair in the family room she would squish herself into the 3 inches next to me. If I was trying to rest in bed she was next to me and if anyone got close she let out a short little growl. It was as if she was saying-back off-my Mommy not's well and I'm going to make sure nothing hurts her!! After about a week she must have decided I was getting stronger and she backed off of her protector role and went back to just being my little velcro follower. This just reinforces my feelings that she is my heart dog and I just couldn't love another dog the way I love my sweet little Cocotini!!
