I have been BLESSED on this National Dog Day with a visit from my first puppy, Laika 😱 She was with me from 8 to 12 weeks old, until I gave her to Dylan’s brother and his family when I moved into dog-unfriendly housing. She’s an aussie/rat terrier mix, maybe.
She’s about a year old now and has grown into the sweetest, gentlest dog, just a pure sweetheart. Dylan let her out to meet me when I got home and she warmed my heart with a ridiculous, noisy, hero’s welcome, rolling all over the ground. I got to play with my two favorite dogs tonight in the yard, and she is staying with us overnight.
