Fate watches, with her border collie intensity at the gate to the barnyard.
Yesterday I let her come out with me to feed the animals but made her stay outside the gate so she wouldn’t run around. I did the same today and besides a bit of whining, she’s being good about it.
If I can overcome her staring at me in a pleading way to let her in the barnyard for just a couple of more days, I know the cut on her pad will be all healed and she can get back to “work”. She’s hard for me to resist though, and I do miss her company in the barnyard and on my walks.
Even when I look the other way, I can feel her eyes on me.
