Summer may be Little Black’s favorite time of year. It is the time when I am out the most, so she gets to spend time with me. Frequently spending time together means we play “smack smack” or she flirts with me by flitting around my chair while I am trying to read. Here we are a few weeks ago. I am trying to get her to sniff my finger in hopes of one day actually being able to pet her. She is trying to playfully eat my finger. She was so gentle with me though, a sign she trusts me despite her reservations.
