I just love this little photo collage of my two favorite four-legged friends. It was 102 degrees outside a few days ago, and I wanted a Dreamsicle – a favorite childhood treat and something I had not had in years. So after a quick trip to the grocery store to purchase said item, I decided to eat it outside on our back porch to not make a mess inside. Eight little paws quickly followed me outside, as they sensed something yummy in my hand, too. While sitting in my favorite rocking chair, my audience did not take their eyes off of me, just patiently waiting and hoping beyond hope that they might also get a tasty bite.
It was so good, and it was so hot outside that I caved to their pleading – but not until I was nearly down to the very end of my tasty treat. They were good to wait their respective turns as I gave them each a nice, big bite. Big Ol’ Baby tried to eat the whole thing right away, but I managed to get the stick away from him long enough to salvage a bite for Girly Girl, who gently licked hers off like the little lady she is.
Little did I know that this brief episode has now created a couple of Dreamsicle addicts. All I have to do is disappear into the kitchen, open the freezer door, grab a Dreamsicle and start to tear off the paper wrap… and eight little paws come a’ running, even if they were sound asleep in another room. Oh me – what have I done? 😉
