A Boy and His (Borrowed) DogPosted: October 22, 2015
With our good friend Smarty on the other side of the country, the kids and I made some time to go visit Honey. She was cooped up in the house all day, which made a great excuse for us to take her down to the beach. But the truth is, it’s probably even more fun for us than it is for Honey. Which is saying a lot, because she was stoked to see us.
It’s also good practice for Weston. I don’t think we’re quite ready to actually own a dog yet, but we’re starting to think about it. And Weston wants one more than anything in the world. Having grown up with dogs, I know how wonderful it is to have one in the family, but also how much work it is.
So Weston took the lead, played with her until they were both about to fall over, then toweled her off, checked her water, and gave her a snack. Honey was gracious and well-behaved throughout. Baby steps, but I think we’re getting closer.
