Diva dogs like toiletries

My Aunt and Uncle, who live in England, came to my brother's wedding and very thoughtfully brought little gifts. Just little tokens.


I was lucky enough to get a nummy magnolia lotion from one of my favorite stores, Marks & Spencer. Kind of an English Target. But it has a longer, slightly grander history.


When I came home I was so shell shocked from all the activities and travel and looming master's thesis that I didn't really unpack. All right, I never really unpack. I sort of live out of the suitcase until it is empty and then I put it away.


I had that lovely lotion in my bag in a little pocket. The bag was on the bed and as I left one day for work and looked at Sapphire laying on my bed about 10 inches away from that lotion I wondered.


"Nah" I thought. It isn't furry or squeeky or interesting to her. Plus it is in that little pocket so she isn't able to get to it.


Duh. I came home that day and Sapphire had not only gotten the lotion out of that pocket and carried it a full three feet onto the other side of the bed, but opened the box to see what her Aunt from England had given her. I know she was simply opening the box and not being destructive because the lotion is untouched and undamaged. It was also about a foot away from the box so I know Sapphire carried it away to cherish and wonder over her loverly gift.


She doesn't open boxes neatly


but her lotion bottle is in perfect condition


She sent out her thank you card yesterday.
