Suddenly I've Become Protective

Something has overcome me and I find that suddenly I've become protective of River.

The daddies discovered that she needed to have a bit of a groom and they needed to give her a bath. They took her upstairs into the bathroom and at first I joined them because I was curious. Then not matter how gentle they were with her and I must admit they were very kind you could tell she was not enjoying the experience. They were talking to her and stroking her and making sure that no water got into her face but the poor little thing was very upset.

Considering she was very good she didn't make a fuss but I could see she wanted it to be over as quickly as possible. I then found myself pacing up and down, looking in to make sure she was OK.

It was strange I had no idea I would feel this way. I just wanted to scream at them leave her alone she doesn't like it even though I know they were only taking care of her. I thought dogs liked water but River it turns out is like me and hates it. Who knew we'd have something like that in common.

When they came down to dry her off I sat nearby just to make sure she was OK. I hate seeing anyone scared. Maybe this is a new beginning for us two?
