I stopped at Food City to pick up a few last minute items for Thanksgiving dinner.
It was pandemonium, with people in every isle, looking, seeking, picking through the sale items and bumping buggies with one another.
A few people smiled back at me and I even saw a couple of people I knew.
It wasn’t the Food City experience, though, that made my day, it was the coming home to find a big white dog wagging his tail and making me feel loved that made my day.
He followed me as I backed into my driveway.
He watched me bring in my groceries and was riveted by the fact that the back of Serenity opened up giving enough room for him to jump inside.
He thought about it, but decided to wait for another time.
I invited him inside but he only put his front paws inside the front door. Such a gentleman, that beautiful boy.
I haven’t been welcomed home that way in many years.
He was as happy to see me as I was him.
I brought my groceries inside then spent some time telling him what a sweet, good boy he is.
He sat when I commanded him to and I gave him a treat for being obedient.
This Thanksgiving, besides being thankful for my family and friends, I’m thankful for a big white pup who will become a gigantic white dog that will greet me before I go to work and welcome me back when I come home.
It doesn’t really matter what his name is, he is precious to me and I think he knows it.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, your family, your friends and your pets.
Enjoy and be thankful for every moment.
