So, I've got some lovely comments on the cushion-dog story (not here, but on the site I originally posted it) - thanks everyone!
However, some people were really surprised by Moira's strong wording when talking about the intruder, who I had mentioned being my mother's adorable dog, Iris, and whose picture you can see at the end of this post.

But you see, now... Well, here's how they're doing together:
Moira will never admit (heh), but she does love Iris. Don't they look gorgeous together? :-)
