Some Of This Man's Best Friends

Friday is my last full day as an Independent Contractor walking dogs for AlexandriaPetCare.

     

These are some of the cast of characters I have been with: Vodka, Pepper, Benny & Logie, and Tucker. 

All week I've been reminiscing about my year-long stint working with APC and Elizabeth Legere, a dear friend who is a top-notch business owner & boss (not to mention being the mother of our newest god-daughter).  Every day, it has felt a little bit like that scene in "The Wizard of Oz" when Dorothy prepares to leave the Emerald City to return to Kansas via hot-air balloon with the Wizard himself as her escort.  She is saying her goodbyes to her friends: the Cowardly Lion, the Tin Man, and Scarecrow.  As she hugs Scarecrow with tear-filled eyes, she says, "I think I'm going to miss you most of all".

The playful Golden Retriever pictured on the far right is my Scarecrow in this bunch.  With apologies to any and all of my own dear pets I have known throughout my lifetime, I believe Tucker is the "perfect dog".  He is everything I believe God intended him to be:  Gentle, sweet, well-behaved, interesting, fun, and he talks too!

Yep, it's been fun.  Tucker, I'm going to miss you most of all.

And the chorus is: Well done, good and faithful servant.

They'll miss you too.
