The lake is a great place for a city dog to visit.  But, it’s not home.  That became painfully clear to Gracie at bedtime last night.  The neighbor’s fireworks didn’t help.  She paced and she “sang”.  Hanna assumed her spot on the corner of the bed and about midnight I actually reached down to make sure she was breathing because she seemed unaffected by Gracie’s distress.  While I would have let that dog sleep under the covers with her head on my pillow if that would have made her happy, tonight we’ll make a kennel available, since that’s what she’s used to.  I’ll get over it.  WOW!  “YellowPants” is featured on the Courage Center’s website as an “extremely generous philanthropist”.
