Saga Forgives

You hear people talk about the unconditional love that pets show you. Who but a dog would let you pack her up, ship her off to a stranger's house, and leave her there for two weeks? While she pines away for you, you're off god knows where, doing who knows what. You drive away while she stares at you at the door and you're

But then you drive up and walk through the door and, aside from a little residual pique, there is no repercussion. You deserve worse; you went off and left her where they fed her, walked her, let her sleep in the sun in the back garden. You've come back smelling like somewhere foreign. And did you really think that cookie was going to patch things up?

But you're back, she's so thrilled she doesn't know whether to whimper and tell you her troubles or jump in your lap and kiss you! The tail is whipping so fiercely that it is in danger of falling off. She doesn't even want to let you out of her sight long enough for you to carry her bed and food back out to the car.

Daddy's Home!

Wherever you are today, I hope that you're with someone who loves you like that!
