Blessed

I have lost track of the exact date I adopted Achilles. It is enough to say that right about ten years ago today, I brought him home.

He helped me get through: letting go of beloved Corndog; keeping sensitive Stella busy and at work; my frequent travelling to see Faye; selling my house then moving to Canada; travelling on two long road trips.And a great deal more.

Chili dog has always been steady and reliable. Perhaps not always the best ambassador from his kind to his kind, yet always a most excellent ambassador from his kind to our kind.

I’ve been blessed to own Achilles.
