Effie (right) and Paladin (left) suddenly decided to have breakfast together at her usual place. They have always before eaten in separate rooms, she in the dining room and he in my study. Today they shared their breakfast at her place. They each have two bowls of food in their respective areas, one of kibbles and one of tinned food, as well as a bowl of water. On this occasion, she ate the tinned meat and he munched the kibbles.It appears to be a new breakthrough in domestic closeness that I find heartening.
