I wasn’t going to write anything today. I don’t have time.
But Honey just did something so adorable. So Honey. I just had to share.
A few minutes ago, I took Honey downstairs for a little break in the yard.
She went down the stairs and walked into the garden, as a tiny sparrow landed on a dogwood branch above her head.
Honey glanced up at the bird who when flew to the ground about a yard in front of Honey. Honey took a step toward the bird who flew off a few more feet ahead of Honey and then started eating something she found on the ground.
Honey quietly watched the bird for at least a minute before the sparrow flew off to the next yard. Then Honey did a little dancing hop of joy, turned quickly, and ran up the stairs.
I swear, if she could speak English, Honey would have said, “Hey, look who I just met!”
Honey loves all creatures—the bold rat who briefly stayed with us, my sister’s guinea pigs, the neighboring cats (well, all except the one who’s a really good hunter). And, of course, all humans.
I have a lot to learn from the furry, gentle soul who shares my home.
Your Turn: Can you think of a time when your dog did something that was so singular and so much an expression of who they are? Please share.
