Kearney - Since Lowri has been gone - and will be gone for almost two more weeks - I have decided I need to keep TM company. So, even though I have not done this at any point in my life, I have taken to sitting on TM's lap in the evening. I curl up with my head in her lap and go to sleep. She keeps a hand on me, or runs a finger along my soft hair between my eyes. It feels great.
When she gets up, I follow her wherever she goes. I make sure there are no sewer monsters in the bathroom. I sit and wait for her when she closes a door between us. I sleep at her feet when she is on the computer. I even have been sneaking into the bedroom so I can watch over her while she sleeps. I curl up next to the bed and snooze lightly. I am doing my best to take care of her while Lowri is gone.
It is tough being a responsible dog.
