Magical Moment 630, "New Best Friend"

I put Ricky on his tummy-time mat the other day and although it was fun to see his reaction to the colorful dangling objects, it was just as entertaining to watch Joy be fascinated with her new favorite creature. 

At first she kept a respectful distance, showing great restraint and discipline (which is no easy feat for this excitable Sheltie).

In her eagerness, she gradually inched closer.

Always checking with me first for approval. And I gave it to her.

And closer. Almost there...just a bit more until I can finally...

Ah yes. *Contented sigh*

I love that my little family loves each other.

This is the sweetest thing ever. Perhaps Joy needed a brother as much as Ricky will need her.
How I love seeing our Cocoa around little people; so patient and tolerant….and also so interested.

Suz took the words right out of my mouth. I am pleasantly surprised at Joy's reaction to this little intrusion on her life. She's had you and Eddie all to herself for a long time. So neat that she's taken to Ricky so sweetly. By the way, love the socks!

Just adorable! What a sweet dog you've got there. I can see the love and adoration in Joy's eyes. How sweet they are together. :-)

Oh that's just the cutest thing. She is such a sweet, gentle dog. I wonder if she's imagining him upright... and all the circles she can run around him. ;)

Smiling, that sequence of inching closer speaks volumes - they are going to be inseparable *!*
