The Magic is ALL in the HANDS
Yesterday was so STRESSFUL for me. First of all, it was Monday. Second of all, I was home alone for a long time. Third of all, I had no one to cuddle with me.
So when Mommy #2 got home she noticed I was a little stressed. It could have been the wild anxious look in my eye or the way I was obsessively LICKING my nose. I don't know. In any case, she tried to talk to me calmly and make sure I was not sick.
As I sat next to her trying my darnedest to CHILL, I felt her hand reach around my ears and start massaging behind them. The she massaged my shoulders. All of the tension just melted away. It was better than a bully stick or a nice spot next to the heater. My Mommy has MAGIC HANDS.
I am currently plotting a way to get more of those wonderful MASSAGES. Maybe I could fake an anxiety attack or two? A few more visits from Licky Lou (touchy as sometimes I am crated when I am too much of a Licky Lou). It's worth the gamble, though.
I wonder how long it would take her to catch on.
