This week we are dog-sitting my brother's dog. My husband told me that I am more affectionate to my brother's dog than ours. He thought that it hurt Lilly's feelings to hear me call my brother's dog "cute and cuddly". I immediately told him that my brother's dog is needy and requires the extra attention. Lilly is independent and doesn't need the extra attention. He left, shaking his head.
Shortly there after, I looked over and there was Lilly, playing with her ducky. And that's why I don't call her "cute".
