she likes to swish her tail in his face.
he likes to lick her ears.
she lets him think he wears the pants…
but really she’s the one who has him in check.
sometimes it’s a flirtation game,
other times it’s brother-sister pestering.
he barks, she claws.
in the end, though, they both tire,
and end up lounging peacefully next to each other.
as much as they try to make us think otherwise, they’re crazy about each other.
