In just two days, my life went upside down. The lady went away. And then The Man went away. And then they both came back in the middle of the night with 2 dogs.
The lady's Uncle died. The lady loved the Uncle very much. She promised the Uncle that she would live with his dogs one day and after that, forever. Well, forever started Monday. The Uncle's dogs walk around the house a lot. They don't smile. And sometimes they will make squealy noises if no one is around. I think this means they are sad because of the Uncle.
The lady says they need time to settle in, and that I need to be a Good Friend by being gentle and easy to live with. I think they must feel like I felt before I went to the Barn and then to the lady's house. Sort of lost and nervous and forgetting where I put my smile. It is because of this that I am quiet around them and give them kisses, and I make sure I don't barrel into them like I do with Miss Emily and the lady's legs and all of the furniture.
This is my new family.
|That is Riley on the right. He is ancient because he is older than Miss Emily who is 11. I call him Lumpy Bump Riley because he has lumps and bumps everywhere, even on his chin.|
