I’m embarrassed to admit I’ve recently visited the animal shelter so often that I know some of the dogs awaiting adoption by name. Yet, Emil and I haven’t felt a connection, that inexplicable spark convincing us a certain dog has been waiting just for us.
In the last 25 years, we’ve shared our lives on our farm with three dogs. This cast of colorful canines has brightened our lives!
Luke was our first teammate
Cody emigrated from Houston
Kally was our third partner
There will never be another Luke, Cody or Kally. But, maybe, just maybe, there’s a dog out there looking for a new home that’s waiting for us. We hope so.
I’m a pushover for people, places, objects and events that stir a memory, tell a story or represent what I consider undervalued history. Echoing the deep rural roots of my childhood near Midnapore, Alberta, I now nurture these interests from our place at the dead-end of a country road near La Grange, Texas. If you think we may share common interests, please visit www.elainethomaswriter.com to see other stories I’ve saved.
