Hi gang, a good week despite the rain. Some raking to be done but I can’t do anything strenuous until I see the ENT doc. I can write though so here we go with a delightful Sunday and our weekend writing warriors. Yes we are.
Last week I surprised everyone, including myself, with the Beagle therapy dog and the super nice doctor we’ve all come to love.
“She’s up for adoption.” Brad petted the the pup, “because my wife wanted a Beagle; Jerry Fields at the shelter called us.We couldn’t resist the brother and sister so we brought them both home from the shelter.since they were abandoned, an envelope tied to each collar. Inside were certification papers and a note saying the owner was ill and couldn’t take care of them. When Anna called, the light bulb clicked in my weary head and I thought she might be the answer to your exhaustion and slow recovery so keep her and see how it works for both of you. I brought a bag of kibbles and stuff because I just know in my heart, and this isn’t something I learned in med school, this trained dog is the best medicine. Now I have to work. but call me; I want to know what’s happening.”
Anna walked him to the door, “ It’s scary to see him in a heap instead of the strong man rushing from meeting to building every day and ask the doorman to bring up the dog supplies; I love her already.” She twisted her hair into a thick braid. and said, “Thanks, Brad, I’m not frightened anymore..”
