Saved By The Dog
My baby had hard news today. The kids have a little sister and brother and they have been separated since they came to live with us. It's a long ugly story. Piglet did a lot of mothering to them when they were little. She mailed a birthday card to her little brother and today it came back; undeliverable, no forwarding address. She was devastated.
I followed her outside, I knew she was crying. I just sat by her and stroked her hair and listened. We just sat there together. The dog went over and threw up something, and then went and pooped. We laughed, he's a great dog with good timing.
I came in the house and went upstairs. I've been reading some fun books and resting since I got home. A little while later I heard Piglet say, "Somebody is burning up eggs"! Holy cow! I had COMPLETELY forgotten that I had put some eggs on the stove to hard boil, on high. They had gone bone dry and were exploding all over. The DOG was barking and wouldn't quit. He made Piglet go in the kitchen. Our dog is a hero! We probably could have had a fire. It's official he's a hero and I'm demented.
