A few weeks ago The Cabinet Maker's friend came to the door with a delivery. Sofie, all excited to find a visitor outside, wagged her tail and jumped about as he tried to pet her. I casually remarked how I should have let him take her home while I had the chance. "Yeah," he said, "We already have two dogs and a cat." Off he went and I thought that was the end of it, but when the Cabinet Maker returned an hour or so later, he said, "Hey, if you're really serious, Jose says they'll take Sofie."
I've been blessed with Facebook photos that show my little friend settling into her new home. She has friends now, doggy friends, instead of the feline variety that like to jump on her head. She has a hand-me-down sweater from her doggy friend Gracie, in case it should ever get cold outside... and for the first time in her life, a Christmas stocking with her name on it. She has really moved up in the world!
When the craziness of Christmas is behind us, and the dust has settled a little, I'm going to take a ride out to the Lake Bluff Honey Bee Farm and visit my little friend.
