Faithful companions do not come and go. They come and stay forever. When they have to leave this world, they stay faithfully in our hearts. Forever.
I am desperately hoping that a little dog named Gracie will be my next faithful companion. I will know in the next day or two if she will be coming to live with me. In the meantime, I plan in my mind the 8 hour round-trip journey to her foster home and try to imagine how she will adapt to her new surroundings that will include three cats. I think she will like it here.
