“So then, you’d be Laverne to my Shirley?” asked Buttercup.
“Exactly. Just like you’d be the Betty to my Wilma,” said Daisy.
Buttercup thought about this. “Yes, I think that sounds about right.”
“Sit on our foster mother’s lap and get a nice scratch?” Buttercup asked stretching out her front paws and yawning. “Maybe cuddle and take a nap?”
Daisy gave Buttercup a look. “No, silly, we should play with our toys. And then maybe, she’ll take us for a walk after we get a bite to eat.”
Daisy walked over to Buttercup who proceeded to groom her friend.
“Whew, thanks. You saved me from having to take a bath,” Daisy said.
Buttercup smiled and wagged her tail.
Daisy went over to a bush with Buttercup trailing close behind.
“You know Buttercup, this is where we are supposed to do our, ahem, business.”
Buttercup looked down. “I know. I know. I’m working on it.”
“Well, work a little harder my dear,” Daisy nudged Buttercup with her nose.
In a flash, Buttercup was off to chase the birds in the yard. It’s simply her favorite way to spend her time outdoors.
Daisy decided to wander over to one of her soft toys and nibble on it.
The two girls enjoyed all the fresh air that the outdoors had to offer them before lying down to sunbathe on the porch.
“I’m really glad we’re friends. In fact, I think of you more like a sister,” Daisy said.
Buttercup snuggled in close to Daisy. “I feel the same way.”
“Yes, we do,” Buttercup said.
“I heard the nice folks at City Dog Rescue say that we’re a package deal. I think that means we’ll get to stay together. Because I couldn’t imagine living without you.”
“Me, neither,” Buttercup said. “You’re the peanut butter to my jelly.”
