White Dog could not believe her ears this morning when Steve summoned her up on the bed VERY early and whispered to her, "It is still cool and I miss our time together; don't wake anybody and let's just you and I go to the Park." She squirmed like a pup and sat on Steve's chest. She pressed her nose against me and then quietly hopped off and followed Steve out of the room. A few minutes later I heard the front door softly open and then close.
They were gone for more than an hour and none of the other White Dogs was the wiser. Nuka woke up when they came back and yipped wanting to know where they had been but Steve bribed her with a few treats and WD snuck back up on the bed where she rested curled against my legs. She radiated happiness. Steve confirmed that White Dog greeted the sun with long flowing zoomies across the grass bathed in the rays of the new day. "She still takes my breath when she runs like that," he said as he kissed me then headed for the shower. Her contented sigh made me smile.
Later the heat built up (although we only got into the lower 90's) and the White Dog Army stretched out for a post-lunch siesta. YoYoMa cleared his throat and displayed the stuffie he had dug out of the toybox, "I just want to remind everyone that there are only 2162 hours until Halloween. Have you thought about your costume? I am going as Forder, one of the Three Blind Mice from Shrek! hahahahaha!" His sisters and brother looked at him wondering whether the heat had gotten to him. Yo just snuggled against Pumpkin and winked.
