Usually when I come home, especially when no one else is home, Anna scratches at the door to be let out - whether to welcome me home or just to get out for a minute, I am not exactly sure. Today the door was quiet. hmmmm
I opened the door and called her name. Sheepishly she entered the front room. And then I saw the package had come for Joseph. Torn open. Several wrappers strewn about her bed. I owe my son some Cliff Protein bars.
"Oh, Anna!" Oh, Anna!" in withering disappointed tones.
Apologetic body wagging. "Do you still love me?"
"Oh, I still love you, but we are not speaking right now."
The nice part about it is that when she barked at a neighbor and I yelled at her as usual, she immediately quieted. Normally, she basically ignores me.
