The best of friends.
Tillie sleeps at the foot at Chantal's bed every night, and Chantal shares bits of her breakfast with Tillie each morning. Tillie waits patiently at Chantal's feet under her writing desk while Chantal she learns to make elegant letters. When it's lovely outside, they chase each other about the garden, and throw toys made of felted wool. When it's raining, they sit in the drawing room, Chantal stitches on her sampler and Tillie lies by the fender of the fire. Tillie sits by the door and waits for Chantal when they are out visiting. And when she comes home, Tillie dances and wiggles and wags her tail in delight to see her again.
