Our little Mr. H. is totally thrilled with my little Joey dog. Mr. H. loves to snuggle and play with him and, at times, he helps me do a little dog training. On a recent visit with us, Mr. H. was a bit frustrated when Joey didn’t do what he told him to do. He looked at Joey and with a bit of authority in his voice, he asked: ‘Joey, are you listening to me?’ When he returned home from his visit with us he told his daddy (our son) that he likes to visit ‘the grandma with the dog’!At our family Christmas gathering a week ago, Mr. H. again spent a lot of time snuggled close to Joey.
When he and his family got ready to head home, Mr. H. gave hugs and told us all goodbye and, with a sad, little voice, he said: ‘I sure wish Joey could be my dog’! The promise of an overnight visit sometime soon – and a plan for Joey to sleep in the ‘big’ bed with him – brought a smile to his face and a sparkle to his little eyes. And much talk about plans for another visit sometime soon. A visit to see ‘the grandma with the dog’.
