It has been 12 years since our home experienced the loss of our last dog. Our Benji, which really did look like a Benji, had gone to his reward, the end of a lifetime chain of “departing dog broken hearts.”
Two of the children were out of the home and Jason was just a couple of years from graduating. A general consensus had been given that there would be no more training sessions with a new doggy and no more sorrow from departing dogs.
So I was quite surprised one Saturday late when I arrived home, opened the door and was met by two little creatures that both ran across my shoes and excused themselves.
It was a rather solemn greeting to the news that Jason and Joyce had made an executive family decision to adopt not only one, but two new pets into our home.
