I was sitting outside just a few minutes ago, soaking up the hot sunshine. Willow always wants to know where I am and so she jumped up to lie across my lap. She was getting very warm but wouldn't desert me, hence the tongue and goofy expression.

Willow treated him just like a long lost friend. It was nice to see the two of them cuddling. It occurred to me that the only way she could contribute to catching a burglar in our house is to delay him by getting him to pet her until we showed up at home.
