Hostess With The Mostest

Miss Audrey and her human mom, Arden, came to visit yesterday.  I can always tell when Audrey has been here.  Bessie Anne is the best, most generous hostess, allowing canine guests to raid her toy box at will.  Honey helps herself to the larger toys, one or two at a time.  Audrey, however, goes for mass quantities. She's a social little girl and takes her trove into the "round room" (the breakfast room) to be close to Arden and I in the kitchen where we talk.  Our chat is accompanied by the weekie-weekie of various squeaky toys as Audrey amuses herself on the couch.  Bessie is so tolerant of these antics, lying quietly in the doorway.  When guests, people or canine, leave, Bess accompanies them to their car to say goodbye.  This behavior isn't something she was taught.  She simply has innate good manners and is definitely the hostess with the mostest.  (Apologies to Perle Mesta.)
