When I came home today and opened our front door, the scraggly little white dog of the previous post was there. She rushed right toward me, squealing and jumping up excitedly. "What is the mutt doing here?" I hollered to the rest of the house, and then I entered the family room to find my parents sitting with the mutt's owner, who was visiting to thank us for the dog-sitting.
"Such a sweet little creature," I hastily added for the owner's benefit, scratching her dog's back. "She greets me as if she'd never been away!"
I'm off to pry my foot out of my mouth now. :)
