We never knew
that Clover ate Polo’s food when our backs were turned
that she growled at her sister until she backed down
that she grew fat because she was a thief
that her supposed submission—rolling over on her back and looking pathetic—
was an act.
Until the pet sitter told us, we never knew.

Fayma Drummond says
Funny isn’t it how so many things can happen “right under our noses” and we are not aware until someone not so close to the situation brings it to our attention.
What really gets me is all the things I’m doing to myself “right under my nose” that I can’t see until someone else points them out. Thanks goodness for my friends who do so.

Sometimes it takes an objective eye.
I’m with Monica. We do tend to have some things we simply don’t see. But then again – some dogs can be pretty sneaky 🙂
Lyla Willingham Lindquist says
And this is the one I came over here looking for.
Oh, Clover. Oh, oh Clover.
