I have not been able to bring myself to blog for a while due to feeling so low after the loss of my little dog, Pretty.
But it's Christmas and I have had the privilage of being on the receiving end of an extraordinary act of kindness......the Christmas Spirit is alive and well. Read on to have your heart warmed in this magical season.
When I came back from having Pretty put to sleep I met a former student of mine. Stephen Brady, a lovely young man that I have always had a soft spot for. He could tell how badly we felt the loss of her. Well, today he knocked on my door with a present.
It was a beautiful, tiny, but life sized Yorkie dog asleep in a basket. No, not a real one - but she actually....breathes (and snores gently if you put your ear up to her!)
I find it so comforting to watch her tummy rise and fall and I can't believe someone went to the trouble to give her to me. She will "sleep" at the end of our bed where there has been a big gap and I have put Pretty's collar and disc on her. Here is a picture of 2Pretty (Too Pretty)
And my Pretty1 (Pretty One) in the same restful pose....
Yes, I did get a photo of Stephen (aka Santa)
THANK YOU Stephen Brady. You are a gentleman and a gentle man. and you have restored my faith in human kindness.
Merry Christmas to you all.
