Spontaneous combustion. A sudden explosion of joie de vivre. I don’t know how else to describe it. This display of Lila’s. Something she has done since she was a tiny pup. Her crazy loops.

Without prompting, Lila will burst into action. Circling full tilt with her body reshaping itself. Legs splayed and tail tucked. She loops and then launches herself high in air…hurling herself straight at me! (I know, I know. Not good behaviour.)
