Silver by far has made the biggest changes as she bonds more tightly with her kids, Zappa and Fiona. Silver has a life all her own. At twelve years old this is her second big loss, after the death of Alex (her first love) and she continues to carry that spunk and energy that is all her after losing Brut.
The second thing I noticed since Brut's death with Silver is she started joining in on the hunt with her kids. Ever since we got Silver she has always been a hunter, bringing me mice and such and dropping them at my feet. Then we got Brut. And he was a fanatic about hunting chipmunks and squirrels. Just crazy! I can't believe he actually let Zappa and Fiona hunt with him without serious repercussions. Silver basically stayed out of the game when the puppies came along, so to see her join in with them was awesome! It is like watching someone getting back to their roots and being reborn. So beautiful.
Then this happened the other day: Fiona and Zappa started up a game of chase and Silver was part of it. That was true beauty! The first couple of time when Zappa and Fiona started chasing each other, Silver looked so lost. She just laid there with her head down, missing Brut. So when I saw the Trio chasing and romping around with it each other, it melted my heart. The healing has been incredible with these three. I hope to bring more updates of their progress, because it is like a miracle to watch.
