"Welcome Nancy! Thanks for coming to visit us! We have missed you. And is that lunch you bring with you? Sit down. Right here by me or maybe in the chair with better back support. Can we get you a beverage? "
White Dog had moved to sit next to me. "I just always get such a thrill over our Bella-B and how much she has bloomed since those first months and months where she hid under your chair, momma, and was invisible."
Nancy looked over and nodded. "She made my day."
