I got to see Maggie the beagle for the last few days and she’s such a weirdo. She does this thing where if I’m fast asleep and she feels like cuddling, she will literally hit me in the face with her paw until I wake up and cuddle with her. I thought that was like, a no-no. Like aren’t I supposed to know that if she’s sleeping I shouldn’t hit her in the face because then she might wake up disoriented and confused and scared and bite my face off? Also, her prioritization of cuddling is really extraordinary. I’ve seen dogs wake people up for peeing and eating, but Maggie is just REALLY into cuddling.
Everytime I leave her I just get so worried about her. I just feel afraid she’s lonely. She’s really poorly socialized in a way and it’s not her fault. And her big sister Becky is 14 and is about to die really, really soon and I feel like Maggie’s only definitive understanding of where she is in the pack, or whatever, is Below Becky. So I’m really scared she’s not going to just loose a friend she’s super emotionally dependent on, but she’s also just going to be really confused and anxious.
