One day female peep had an announcement to make. She looked happy, so I wasn’t overly concerned, but you never knew with her.
FEMALE PEEP: “Today is the six-month point for Charlie Bear.”
MALE PEEP: “Really? It’s been six whole months?”
FEMALE PEEP: “Yup, time flies. I’d say he’s steadily progressed to a pretty good dog in the house.”
Pretty good? She didn’t give me much credit. I had very few spin cycles lately, didn’t guard my food or bones anymore after realizing they weren’t going anywhere, and very rarely did I let Rex the big dog get under my skin. I did follow him around a lot. The weird thing is, he taught me stuff. I figured since he’d been here so long there might be things I could learn, and I have.
MALE PEEP: “Charlie Bear. You made it to six months!”
I jumped into his lap and he petted me, like he always does. I licked his hand.
FEMALE PEEP: “He started out at as a headstrong, bullheaded, 16-pound rascal, didn’t he?”
MALE PEEP: “That’s for sure.”
I think I’d found my forever home here with Daddy, female peep, and big dog Rex. What I didn’t count on was how things could change.
