My Job is Done
I am so, so tired. I can barely follow Susan from one napping spot to another. Sometimes I don't even try. Then Gary says, "Where's Molly?" And Susan answers, "I thought she was with you." And they run all over the house looking for me. I would laugh my head off, but I am too tired.
I think I have finally accomplished my goal. My humans are fully trained. I get to eat whatever I want. "Oh, save a little bacon for Molly." "No, give her a whole piece." Ice cream bowls to lick, steak from the grill, and, of course, tiny bites of cheese. I just wish I could smell the food again.
Susan has been taking me to my favorite places - The Out and Back Trail in Carlisle, the mountain bike trails in Banner, and of course our own Easter Lake.
And all I have to do is look at the water and she says, "Sure, you can go swimming." But the hiking and swimming wear me out. I have even slept past my supper time!
I wish I had time for one more camping trip, one more trail, one more piece of bacon. But I am tired.
It has been a difficult job training these two, but my job is done. I'll wait for them in Heaven, and what hiking we will do then!
