Speechless Sundays - Memories & New Traditions
We rescued Duke when he was approximately 4 years old; it's uncertain what breed he is but, we do know that he's mostly shih tzu. He came to us, not crazy about cats but, he ultimately became quite comfortable with our Charlotte. We joked that they were secret buddies - we would often find them in the bathroom, away from everyone, lounging on a rug together. She was like E.F. Hutton - when she meowed, both Barney & Duke listened!
Charlotte's favorite place to get some 'me' time during the holidays was under the warmth of the Christmas tree. The dogs have never even been curious about the tree - they just knew that was Charlotte's domain and they weren't impressed with the tree in the least.
Fast-forward to Thanksgiving 2019. We have a new cat that cares absolutely nothing about the Christmas tree but, evidently Charlotte's secret buddy, Duke, is still able to smell her on the tree skirt. He's found a new place to nap in the evening and now that he's 12 years old, we find it sweet that this is the first time since he's been with us that he's even been under the tree!
