CHARLEY & ME
Remember when Charley was just a puppy?
I’m sure Bumble tastes as good as it smells.
So much curious, unending, always forgiving, unconditional true love.
Today on the bus after work, another story of heartbreak. I overheard two women talking, one telling the other about her eight-year-old son. She hadn’t planned on children – ever – but got pregnant by the baby’s father within the first month she met him. She was already a single, successful, independent woman, but she married the man anyways. Three years into wedded bliss, she found out he had a vicious gambling habit and gambled away both her home in Vancouver and her home on the Sunshine Coast, her two paid-for vehicles and her $55,000 savings account. Now she’s two years divorced and boobs-deep in bankruptcy.
Yes, indeed… dogs will always be this woman’s best friend.
