I don’t know that I’ve ever been more thankful for a Thorsday. Firstly, thanks to all for your kind words, moral support and more. (If you’re lost, scroll down and read yesterday’s post.) We’re so thankful that Gg’s injuries weren’t life-threatening, and I’m moved to that misty-eyed state that so many of you get it and know that the real damage is yet unknown, because we have no idea how much this wounded Gretchen’s JRT psyche.
I’m especially grateful for folks like Katherine and her Macy, who affirm that Gg is not some weird Jack Russell after all. She can be timid and fearless, she can push through intense pain to attempt to join Sissy in the back yard (foiled by watchful parents though), and then tremble and appear too weak to even walk to the sofa to be scooped up for comforting, warming cuddles. Jacks are a complex breed, and it’s what I generally love about them, but right now, I wish they believed in flight instead of FIGHT.
I’m unforgivably past due in thanking the very kind and dear Nancy for my goodies from her coloring contest. This fleece infinity scarf has been a godsend in this bitter cold. I’ve worn it for walks, I wore it all dolled up on New Year’s Eve, and it is so easy-care! Upon further reflection, it might have inspired my craving for winter whites.
I’m also so very blessed to have the Knight, who is an incredible doggy Dadaw. He’s done a lot of the cold and/or snowy potties with Gg, and is better than I am about taking Sis out the front door too, so she doesn’t feel left out. He also didn’t bat an eye when I came home from Old Navy with three onesies for Gg, to help protect her wound when it stops draining and she can have a little more freedom.
Of course, with it being Thorsday, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention Sis-ma. After her heart-breaking howls yesterday when she was gated in our bedroom (as usual) and Gg was crated just outside that door, but within her sight, the Knight coaxed her into the crate first this morning, and both girls were happy to tuck in together for warm snuggles while we’re at work. She doesn’t like NOT being the center of attention, but she loves Gg even more than being a DIVA.
What are you thankful for today?
