All Hail Delilah
Delilah is our black lab. She is about 8 years old. She came to live with us around her second birtday. She has matured in to a wonderful loving dog. More than that though, she has become the baby's favourite person in the world. The baby follows her around. Kisses her (well, it is more of an open mouthed head butt at present), pulls her tail, pulls her ears and grabs away her toys. Gives her nary a moments peace and the dog takes it all with aplomb, grace and endless patience. I have seen those jaws grind through a rawhide in seconds, and yet when that little tiny hand reaches in and pulls the tennis ball out, it is as if the teeth were made of cotton wool. I love Delilah.
