Sadie the Dog awoke with a start this morning. Frank is traveling for business, so she left her usual post by the door to climb into the bed to sleep last night (she's still in a bit of a state that we left her with sitters for two back-to-back trips).
From the look on her face you could tell that she wasn't sure if the noise was squirrels on the roof, reindeer, or that magical thing we call rain....fortunately it was rain!
When we walked outside, I'm not sure which of us was more excited. The air was cool, the grass was wet, and there is a certain freshness in the air. After taking care of her morning rituals, she is now dozing next to the screen door, just enjoying this new experience.
