The word that comes to my mind, is one my grandfather would probably understand, but I can't actually spell it lol. I guess in English, it would be along the lines of caress her gently.
I'm that happy to have my laptop working again lol.
I'm sitting on the bed, comfortably :-). Dixie is on the chestboard, on my lap, and I'm typing away without any impedance --- it's back to getting things done xD
