Good Morning Everyone!
Picture, if you will, the following scene:
I am at the breakfast table, huddling over my breakfast and trying to wake up. In the rooms in the back, which include my bedroom, I hear the normal tap-tapping, shuffle, shuffle sounds of the dogs playing. I hear the scuffle, snarl that means that they are playing with some kind of fabric, and then there is silence. (I should have started worrying then, but I am a slow starter in the a.m.) Suddenly, out of the blue, I hear “CLINK, Clink, clink.”
Only one thing could make that sound – my wedding ring bouncing onto the floor from my bedside table, and, earthquakes being in short supply this morning, there is only one way it could get there – being pulled down by a dog interested in chewing.
(To make matters worse, I have already lost my wedding ring twice in the last five years, and although Mark has been very sweet about it both times, the second time replacement was accompanied with the very reasonable request that I try to hold on to this one for a while!)
Fortunately, I rescued it in time, but it was a close call! I never thought the day would come when I wanted them to chew socks….
Have a great day!
