Ever since my mother in law died, kittens and puppy have been keeping this guy company. It’s amazing how much my father in law loves having Toby around. That puppy gets all excited and wiggly when he sees grandpa; he runs and jumps in his arms, gives him all kinds of kisses, and sleeps on the couch with him. They go for car rides together, they go to the hardware store, and play out in the yard. Toby keeps grandpa preoccupied, and keeps him from thinking too much about the loss of his wife. It’s not even been a year yet that she’s gone, so it’s still pretty fresh. That puppy brings him so much joy, he makes him so happy and he smiles a lot more because of him. Pets are really good therapy. I wish I could stay home with mine all day.
Enjoy your Sunday.
