A Vampire in the House
Some of you may remember what happened between Ciara and Phantom when she was around five months old, just about the same age as Lightning is now. If you would like a refresher, just click HERE and watch the video.
Well, it is all happening again. The Momster thinks we may have a vampire in the pack.
It took a while for the Momster to make the connection. But we now think that this licking behavior is totally wrapped up in the arrival of those new "big boy" teeth in Lightning's mouth. Mom suspects that there may be some blood on his gums or some sort of smell or taste that is attracting Phantom. But why only Phantom is interested is quite the mystery. He does have some bizarre food likes and dislikes:)
Phantom: Don't believe a word of what you are reading here. I am just checking to see if Lightning got some of that duck jerky when I was sleeping.
Lightning: Heck, I don't care, I am rather enjoying all this attention from the patriarch of the pack.
And now it is time for me and Ciara to get our zoomies session underway. (Many of you have commented about how big Lightning is getting. That is true, but you can see Ciara is still bigger than him, and she is the smallest of the other three packmates.)
Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning
Note from Mom: Just a short update on our daughter's friends who were injured in the airshow crash. We can tell you that a husband and wife (our daughter's dear friends), the husband's brother, and the husband's parents were involved in the tragedy. Sadly to date, the husband's mother is still listed as "missing" and presumed deceased. EACH of the other four has lost a good portion of one leg and has multiple fractures to the other leg. All have had surgeries to repair the damage and help them on the road to recovery. All are doing well, given the circumstances. Once again, we thank you all for your prayers, good thoughts, and support.
