A Balancing Act I Would Not Change for the World
Tally the weights of all three of my roommates—they add up to the 20 pandemic pounds I am eager to lose. I am not willing to lose my roommates, even though all three following me into any room I enter, even the shower, can sometimes be disconcerting. Sometimes , a moment before, they were snuggled up with me on the couch, and because I got up, they had to move around again. Mainly though, it’s endearing to be so loved.
Bindy came to me four years ago from The Sato Project, which rescues dogs from Puerto Rico. A month ago, tiny Lia came to me—interestingly, also from Puerto Rico, but from Love of All Dogs Rescue. Both dogs are bilingual. Just kidding: they understand body language, hugs and kisses, good food, and yummy treats.
