I kept talking soothing to her, and finally she slunk away, keeping an evil eye on me the rest of the evening!!
I know I should find that scary and reprehensible but I find it extremely heartwarming and sweet!!
It reminds me of my older sister (by two years) who bossed me around or treated me with a superior disdain much of my childhood but when someone else threatened me, watch out! I remember when we were walking back from the bus stop one afternoon, a dog on the loose ran at me, knocked me over, and stood on top of me. I think he was just being overfriendly but my sister (who is deathly afraid of dogs) came over and started hitting him with her lunch box until he ran away.
I hate to say that story made me love Trixie so much more... sorry, Susie! I just think it's so cute that she's so protective of her little brother.
