Me and my chihuahua Max saying goodbye at 6:00 this morning as I prepared to leave for the airport. I needed one last picture of us, for the year anyway! As soon as I can I will be back to pick him up!
I know some people would say he is "just" a dog. But, he is seriously one of my best friends! He is always happy to see me, and he kept me company when my husband was in Iraq for a year. I've had him for 8 years! Its hard to say "goodbye." When I'm sad, he senses it and comes right over to me to cuddle, if I cry, he tries to lick my tears away. When he is tired, you could hang him upside down by one toe and he would let you... LOL! I love him.
In this picture I was telling him that I will think of him everyday until I return to pick him up.
I know he is in the best hands he could be. He is staying with my mom and dad who will spoil him rotten. He sleeps in the bed with them and my mom makes him chicken and sweet potatoes for dinner. My dad is under strict orders to share his nightly apple with Max - which is something my husband always did, and Maxie loves apples! (Don't worry. Little bites.)
By the way something pretty funny happened today while I was at Dulles Airport. I was making my way to the baggage claim area, and at Dulles, you need to get on a little train/subway type thing to take you to the baggage area. I was waiting in a crowd to get on this train thing... and the lady in front of me was yapping away, turning around and talking to people, even though the train had already arrived. I kept thinking that she better stop talking and get on the train so we don't miss it. I didn't want to be rude and push past her. So, as I finally step onto the train all the sudden WHAM!!!! And I went flying. Flying right into the yappy lady. The doors shut on me! LOL. I couldn't believe it! There was no warning at all that the doors would be closing. As I went flying I let out a "JESUS CHRIST!" which I felt terrible about, but, later decided it is probably less offensive than some other things that could have come out of my mouth at that moment... I was shocked, I said, "Did the door just close on me?" LOL.
...Anyway I am in the D.C. area safe and sound, blogging at a Borders and deciding what book to buy for the plane ride on Sunday.
Just thought the Maxie pic was too cute not to share!
BTW I am not going to use "COMPOSE" anymore because the font after pictures gets screwed up and I can never figure out how to fix it! Do you guys use compose or edit html?
