G R U D G E — A word that sometimes says it all. And it's one of those words you can grab on to because it can have texture and bite. Kind of like Todd.
Last evening I accidentally stepped on Todd's foot. Kingston was right next to me, and Todd immediately started nipping at his face. I scolded him, and put him outside to let him settle down. A few minutes later, I let Todd back in. But he was a dog with a grudge. Because when he saw Kingston he went after him again. Poor Kingston. He had no idea what he'd done.
Today all is forgiven. But I think I need to say "thank-you Kingston for taking the blame for me."
