This is an exceedingly rare photograph
Meg, the old Welsh terrier has never taken to any other bitch
She has spent the better part of nine years, posturing and snapping at any female.
She has initiated numerous fights
She has bitten through a succession of leads when transferring aggression
And she has spent many a stress-filled evening making sure she remains top bitch in the eyes of alpha male me.
That is until today.
Today she sought out and curled up with the benign Winifred on the hearth rug
And stayed there, with her skinny little face resting on Winnie's fat biceps
For an hour or two.
It's not huge news in the great scheme of things
It certainly made my day
