I’m Glad You’re Home

On our way home from the airport after a long weekend in Denver, we made a quick stop into PetSmart to get the dogs some food. At the checkout, Laura bought each dog a $1 pink tennis ball as a souvenir of our trip.

A few minutes later as the garage door went up Laura leaped from the car exclaiming, “They’re going to be so excited to see us!”

We walked in the door and were both met with wagging tails and wet tongues. A minute later Laura gave each dogs a new ball.

We could almost hear their thoughts…

Indie: You’re home!

Lola: Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh….

Indie: I have to tell you how bad that other one was. As soon as you left she starte… (out comes the ball)… a ball, a ball, a ball.

Lola: I missed you so mu... a ball, a ball, a ball.

A few minutes later the dogs laid together chewing on their new toys.

Laura: Do you think they missed us?

Me: I do.

Laura: But look at them. They don’t even care we’re home. All each cares about is that ball.

Me: Next time, save the $2. I think they’d agree that having us home is souvenir enough.
