Nicholas and Chloe have been at Pawley's Island, SC for a week with their Grammie and Papa. Rick (our son and their Daddy) has been in Charleston , SC fishing all weekend and their Mommy (Noelle) has been at Greenville Memorial Hospital working as a pediatric nurse.
Mallie stayed at her "home away from home" The Bed & Biscuit for the weekend. Since it's not far from our house, I picked Mallie up this afternoon. She had to be picked up by 6:00 p.m. and neither Rick nor Noelle could make it by then. Rick asked me if I could pick her up and of course, I said yes.
Papa's giving her a good head patting to make her feel more at home.
Mallie is such a sweet gentle dog, and contrary to what Noelle thinks, Rick likes to call himself the "Dog Whisperer". I actually think they both have a real talent for raising gentle dogs.
Mallie couldn't decide whether she should lie down or follow me to the kitchen, while I cooked dinner.
I think she's sniffing to see where Nicholas and Chloe are. I know she misses them.
Now, I'm guessing she's looking for food we dropped. Clean that floor Mallie. You know, I don't want to.
Finally, she's beginning to relax.
Right now she's lying beside my chair, while I type, all stretched out snoring. She must have had a tough weekend at the Bed & Biscuit.
A quick story about the Bed & Biscuit. About 13 years ago Rick and Noelle had another lab (Zoe) who stayed at the bed and biscuit while Rick & Noelle were on their honeymoon and other times. When Zoe was hit by a car and killed, Rick and Noelle received a beautiful bouquet from the staff at the Bed & Biscuit. That's the place my dog would stay, if Mr. Bird Nest let me have one.
