There are too many dogs I have lost contact with since the old DS site closed. The next I hear from them they are meeting me at the Bridge. This is what happened with my friend Nitro.
But once a friend always a friend,.We hugged after he was sworn in, out of friendship and mutual respect, and then I began to give him lessons on flying,.
Like all pups Nitro hurried through his lessons because he needed to check on his Mom. Being separated from our parents and family is very traumatic for us dogs. We have lots of friend to rally around us but we still want to see that our parents are all right. They never are, they are always broken, but it still makes us feel good to see them.
I took Nitro to Tommy Tunes’ and Tommy gave him some popcorn and showed him some of his funny videos to try to get Nitro to smile. Nitro giggled a couple of times. We left Nitro alone to watch his family on the widescreen while Tommy and I went into the kitchen and cleaned the popcorn maker with our tongues.
Soon Nitro came out of the viewing room slightly teary eyed. I took him by the paw and we flew to a special area by the water. There was a huge circle lit by a thousand candles and in the middle were hundreds of dogs and Nitro and I joined them in play. Nipping, rolling over, licking and kissing each other until Nitro felt better.
It is going to take a lot of playing and nipping to make Nitro feel better and it is going to take a lot more than that to get his Mom to feel better. But her little boy is here safe and feeling like a pup.
On Thursday, when you think of him, think of him in his little helmet getting ready to play in the Puppy bowl. We will keep him, and all pups, occupied until his Mom gets here.
Even Angels need Angels.
