Despite the beautiful weather, it is a stressful start to my week. I'll spare you the drama and just say that I came home this evening, exhausted. Carl is working late so that left me to care for the dogs alone. Todd is of course the one with the most energy. You'll remember in my last post his very favorite toy, 'red ball' was missing. We've moved furniture, searched in places that there's no way it could be, but we've been unable to find it. But tonight, throwing a tennis ball for him did the trick to wear him out.
Once all the dogs had been loved and fed I decided that I was going to lay down for a few minutes. Things were quiet in the house, and it was just starting to get dark. I must have dozed off because Todd woke me up when he jumped on the bed and dropped something next to me. When I looked at him, it was easy to see that he was really excited about something, and he was wagging his tail. I put my hand on what he had dropped and I was stunned--It was the red-ball!!! Of course I had to chuckle because I'd love to know just where in the world he found it! Even though I'll never know that answer, I do know that its reappearance gave me a little needed grin at the end of my long stress filled day! Thank-you Todd!!
