Current status: covered in dog hair, blasting Fleetwood (cuz they frown upon blasting in hotels, so I’ve got some catching up to do), unpacking so many bags, and fully committed to NOT putting on real pants today. So basically I’m living the dream. After a month of non stop business and travel, Dog Hair Dont Care dedicating 2 full days to do nothing but rest and reset. What about you? What’s on your agenda for today? I have a dog on each side of me breathing on me licking my arm and face dog hair flying all over my car and can’t forget that their slobbering all over me I already smell like dog hopefully she comes back pregnant when they come home in a few days.
This morning I sent my son outside to get something out of my truck. Some time passes and while I am inside thinking “what is taking him so long?”, he comes running in the house covered in dog hair saying “Sorry mom!!” and then proceeds to tell me that while he is outside he hears a lady screaming “Help! Help!” along with the sound of dogs fighting. Dog looks down the street and he sees The Legend with a dog on a leash while an unleashed dog is attacking her dog. and Wine shirt runs to help her, breaking the dogs up and grabbing her full grown Golden Retriever, who is wounded, until the stray dog runs away. She frantically calls her daughter from Miko’s cell phone telling her of the attack saying their dog needs to go to the vet all while Miko comforts her dog and brings him to our front yard to give him water. A few hours later Miko asks me if I am going to be home for a while and then tells me that he called the number that the lady called from his phone to check on the lady and the dog and she informs him that she would like to meet his mother. Minutes later she shows up on my doorstep in tears with her daughter and a gift for my son thanking him for saving their dog. So often we wonder what our kids do when we aren’t looking or what they do when we aren’t there to tell them the right thing to do. Proud of my son for no longer needing me to be with him to tell him right from wrong or what it means to be a good person. Looks like Benedict Cumberbatch figured that out.
