White Dog has been home a couple of days now and still something was not right. She has checked her toy box a bazillion times and nothing is missing. All of the "pets" are in good health and are glad she is home. Food, water and treats are where they should be....Oh my dog!...what's that noise?...the MAILMAN! That's what has been missing! There has been no mail delivery since we got back Saturday night because yesterday was a holiday! White Dog lunged for her perch and went into overdrive barking and scratching at the window to let USPS know she is home and on duty. She "sang" the mailman all of the way down the block and back to his truck. When I went to the porch to collect the envelopes, White Dog was at my side sniffing the pieces and allowing them to be brought inside. Individual inspections revealed that there was actually an envelope for her...a lovely letter and photos from her friend Cappy (check out his new blog). White Dog hopped back up on her chair and gave one final sendoff to the mailman even though he was long gone. At last, things were back to normal and she could nap.
