Some of our RV friends who like dogs, but don't have one, will often write about how they get their "doggie fix" by spending time with someone else's pooch.
Cosmo in my chair
Yesterday we had a house guest named Cosmo. Cosmo's "parents" George & Pat Hatfield were in Yosemite with family and we jumped at the chance to have a playmate for Trixie. She didn't do much playing, but we had a ball with Cosmo. He is playful and very affectionate. His choice on spots for a nap is alongside of someone or on their lap. You might say: we lapped it up.
We invited him back today and he is presently snuggling up to Sandy's pillow. My lap was occupied by my laptop.
