I went to Maine last week for a very quick visit with my family and friends back in the homeland. Both Pixie and Penny were happy to see me when I came back, but someone whose name starts with Pixie has been especially needy. Maybe its because I was super busy housesitting and taking care of other dogs in the weeks before I left, which meant I wasn’t home very much in September. Or, maybe it’s just because she likes me. Either way, she makes a great pillow.
