Cosmo has been trying to pull a fast one ... he sits quietly and calmly, pretending he's a cocker spaniel or perhaps a long-haired dachshund. You know ... one of those dogs who are no trouble at all (relatively speaking.) Then he gives me this very "setterish" sideways glance with just a hint of the white's of his eyes showing before resuming his favorite project of removing all the reindeer moss from the base of my fake plants and squirreling it all over the house for his future amusement. This devilish behavior is what professional dog people refer to as "bonding" ... good thing he is so adorable!!
