We Are Back

Jake and Windy relax at grandma's house.

September was a cruel month.

Jake, Windy, my husband and I had to go out of town. My father-in-law died.

Jake was sensitive to my mother-in-law. Shortly after we arrived, and several times a day while we were there, Jake insisted on sitting with my mother-in-law. He knew he had to comfort her.

After a few days, Windy joined in. My mother-in-law had two dogs snuggling with her. I don’t know if Windy followed Jake’s example, was jealous of Jake, or knew my mother-in-law needed some consolation. No matter the reason, I know having more than one dog in your lap is soothing.

Hope liked my father-in-law, so may she snuggle on his lap now.


About daysofourdogs

I have owned dogs nearly all my life. Many different breeds, mutts, rescues, and foundlings have found their ways into my heart. I have two dachshunds and a miniature schnauzer now. I hate puppy mills and want them wiped from the face of the earth.
