My Uncle David has arrived today, he's going to be staying for a week. I'm such a bad host in general; my hermit tendencies really kick into high gear when family come to visit, mostly because it highlights to me how little I actually do... but that's for another post maybe.
The GOOD news about him being here is that I have two of the loves of my life back in my life again!
Taken September 05, 2009.
Satan and Foxy Lady; they're definitely HIS dogs. Especially Foxy Lady who is extremely anti-social in general (she's a one-man dog). But I took the time to befriend her, and even now after many months apart she still remembers me and comes up for some loving from me when he's in town. Satan is an old man but will love anyone who'll give him a scratch and put up with his shedding hairs and feed him treats.
Whenever they're in town they highlight to me just what an empty place for dogs there is in my life! I so dearly want one of my own, but in order to do that I need to settle down and get a job and be serious about not dropping everything and moving again or extended travels...
And in the meantime, for at least a week, I get to pretend I have dogs in my life again.
And it is good.
