A is so sweet. I mean it, sugar curdles in his presence. I just stole that from T who says that is what happens with our dachshund and sugar...anyway, it applies to A for me.
We got some paperwork in the mail meaning that the adoption will be final very soon. As I was tucking him in tonight he said that I he was glad I was his Mommy, and that I was the best one he has ever had. Its sad that his little life has been such that he can say that, but it warmed the crevices of my little heart.
Me: Aw, thank you. Why am I the best?
A: Because you dont make me take naps
Me: Is that the only reason?
Oh, well it was still nice. Then he said how much he loved the dogs even Marco died before the kids came to us. He asked if Marco was in heaven. I said Yes, doggie heaven. Not that I believe in a literal doggie heaven, for sure, but what else do you say?
Then he proceeded to explain that doggie heaven was on one side, cat heaven (I KNOW that doesnt exist!) was on the other and human (yes, he said "human") was in the middle. Maybe he is right, after all the poem says that the rainbow bridge connects dogs and their owners after death, so this would fit. That is my little man.
