On Sunday I took lil Hallie down the road for a stroll to a friend’s and she loved it. She reminded me of her grandmother Hallie so much. We had a good time and she was very good while waiting for us as my friend and I talked. Coming back I decided to run with her and she loved it!!! We ran into the garage where I took time to wipe down and check out the tractors and she laid there watching me and even then she enjoyed her time with me. She listened to me as I talked and I could see she was soaking it all in and she was understanding a lot of what I was saying to her. We interacted on a deeper level than ever…..
While she has been my right hand for a while now, I felt on Sunday that our friendship took the final step on Sunday. Lil Hallie was very mature and the whole walk wasn’t about her by the way she was acting. She was just happy being with me and was content just hanging out watching me work on the tractors, like Trevor, Big Hallie did. Its hard to describe but it went to another level that one rarely experiences with their furry family members. That night as I was sleeping I felt her jump up next to me and she cuddled up closely and groaned her happiness for a few minutes then stretched out and slept next to me for the rest of the night. Yeah, I think she just stepped into those big paw prints left by Niamh, Hallie and Trevor…… by the way she is acting I think she will fill them just fine!
