skippy

this morning wondergirl's little friend skippy came to visit her this morning. i almost started to cry.. i sat him down and explained to him that she was never coming back, but he kept looking for her. he went into her dog house, to her favorite spot on the porch, then he ran down to the garage... it was sad. then he found her. he found the spot she was buried. he just sniffed around with his tail wagging, but then it stopped once he realized she wasn't coming out of the ground. it was sad. so i fixed him some food and went on to work.
i never realized how much i would love that dog. i will miss walking with her to the lake. throwing sticks in the air. watching her act like she is going to attack me, but then to have her just jump up and kiss me.
*sigh....

Molly was really sad when I told her about Wondergirl. One of the first things she thought about was Skippy. She was worried hat "her" dog Skippy would stop coming to visit.

let her know that he has been at the house all day. i believe he will keep visiting... he knows that i will feed him something good when he stops by.

I thought about your post for a while yesterday after I read it. Dogs are good animals... men could learn a thing or two from them... like loyalty and friendship.

I hope your heart is well.
