When I stayed with my friends Max and Mary on Long Island for five days in the beginning of March, to kick-start the book-writing adventure that me and Max have initiated, I met Angie, the sweetest dog alive. Angie the Dog had a rough start, and was rescued by Mary, who fell in love with her on first sight. Easy to understand! There are traces left of her rough start in life, but boy did she ensure she got the best family ever.
She’s a beagle, with something else thrown into the mix, apparent amongst other things in her slightly longer-than-normal ears, according to Mary, who’s the beagle expert.
As you can see, Angie the Dog is a very gentle soul, and I gues that’s why she and Mary hit it off so perfectly, Mary being a gentle – and oh so marvellous! – soul herself.
Max and Mary made me feel right at home at their place, and Angie assisted them, but not in that in-your-face-way many dogs sport (or in-your-crotch for that matter), for which I am very happy, being a cat-person myself. After I left I was told Angie kept looking for me for days. I miss her too, and I sure hope to meet up with her again someday!
Animals bring such joy to life, and I am grateful for having had many wonderful experiences with pets. Have you ever been touched in heart and soul by an animal?
