Mammalian Assistance: one of the cutest things that happens in this house is when Marlowe is sitting on my mousepad (as he often does), and Signy comes over to visit. As she is a rather tall dog, she is comfortable reaching over the desk to poke me with her pokey nose. And Marlowe likes to start washing her face and ears, and grooming her fur when she does. It's really unbearable cute.
Especially the long-suffering looks she gives me as she tolerates the prickly cat-tongue inside her ears. (She's a natural-eared Dane, but her ears are rose-ears rather than spaniel ears, so even when they're not pricked (well, half-pricked, which is the best she can do) he can get inside the folds. It must tickle like a son of a bitch. I can only imagine.
