Week of Thanks: Wednesday

Today I am thankful for Figgy and Baxter.

Two summers ago we lost our family dog, Farley. He was The Good Apple's first kid and a wonderful companion. The Little Man was only 3 and so his memories with Farley are scattered. He remembers crawling up is his yellow, otter-like fur and snuggling with him. Those are good memories to keep at the surface.

Since then, he hasn't had that same joyful, comforting experience with a dog and has really become quite apprehensive around our friends' dogs.

Today it warmed my heart when these two pups brought him back around. My mother-in-law and sister-in-law each have one of the sweetest dogs and they are exactly what was needed to break the fear spell.

Thank you Figgy and Baxter for your gentle and loving ways.
