Best friends don’t necessarily have to talk every day. They don’t even need to talk for weeks. But when they do, it’s like they never stopped talking. ~Author unknown
Bet you’ve missed hearing from me, huh?
The Kid (AKA Domer) is coming home soon!
Not to stay forever, Mama says. Just for a visit. Kind of like when he came home from school, then took off again.
But that’s okay. Any time The Kid comes home is Happy Time for me. He brings youthful energy, lots more noise, more bustling around. Plus, he makes my mama happy!
Now I haven’t heard The Kid’s voice in a looooong time, but Shelties never forget. Sometimes when he’s talking to Mama on the phone, she puts it to my ear, and I can listen. I’ve got her trained that way!
Anywho, we’ve got preparations to tend to before he gets here. Mama races to town to buy his favorite foods (a kid’s gotta eat!). She spiffs up his room. She reschedules nonessential work. And makes sure I’m groomed and sweet-scented for cuddling (I could easily do without the grooming, but I love cuddling!)
Don’t I look cuddly??
Mama thinks I look sad in this photo, but I’m not. Not really. I’m just trying to look cute.
You see, Mama had a cookie, and I wanted it…a lot.
And I figured if my puppy-dog eyes couldn’t get her to part with at least part of that cookie, why, she must have grown a hard heart. (We dogs have to test that now and then.)
But you know what?
She didn’t! I got the cookie.
And soon I’ll have The Kid home to beg from, too.
