She actually does many things, she is a model for photos ~ she travels with me on my photography walks, right now she is lying beside me and generating lots of warm and a very loving companion and she is my 'muse' ~ and Boss ~ she has a built in clock to let me know what time it is to do what ~ otherwise i could get very lazy ~ thanks for asking ~ carol and artmusedog, xxx
