Then one day the news came. She couldn’t believe her ears. She learned of his sudden and horrible death. She was inconsolable. She was ravaged by guilt and the empty pit of loss. She mourned for him. She grieved him. She would often dream of him. She could feel his breath on her face. She would smell his musky scent and turn expecting to see him coming in the door. He wasn’t there and he wasn’t coming back. She knew she must move on. She must live her life without him.
Time went on and Gladys did move on. She saw others but none of them compared. She had even contemplated having one of them move in with her but it just didn’t feel right. She spent hours on the internet searching for just the right one. She would think one would be right only to find out they had misconstrued the truth, they were older or not at all what they had stated. She had all but given up and then she saw him. She had never seen him before but something in her stirred. Her heart beat fast and her breath came a little quicker. She moved toward him. He was sitting with his buddies when he looked up and saw her. He too stood. They saw each other and it was if a curtain had been lifted. The next thing Gladys knew she was holding him in her arms. She was breathless. She was enraptured with his face, the feel of his hair. He nuzzled his nose into her neck. She could barely get the words out of her mouth as she breathed into his ear “I love you.” He turned his face to hers and his dark brown eyes said it all. He didn’t have to say it; she could just tell the feeling was mutual.
Gladys heard Kahuna’s voice from behind her say “we are taking him home with us aren’t we?” Kahuna knew it was love at first sight and he was helpless to stop it. Now I want you all to meet Bozley my new love.
Bozley was rescued from the animal shelter the day he was to be euthanized.
I apologize for the quality of the picture and will get some better ones as soon as he gets
aclimated. He is an apricot toy poodle. He is at this minute curled up next to our Lab and Boxer sleeping with a full belly and his very own blankie.
