You know how when you have a dog and it's the center of your universe? You smother it with love and kisses and peanut-butter filled kongs. Everything you own is covered in dog fluff because you take that damn dog with you everywhere. It is your constant companion.
And then one day, you bring home another dog. This New Dog is in no way a replacement. As a matter of fact, this New Dog is supposed to keep Top Dog company. But that's not how Top Dog sees it. New Dog is the ultimate threat, only there to usurp your limited amount of love, kisses and peanut-butter filled kongs. So Top Dog starts vying for your affection in the most pathetic ways. Top Dog is all, "Look at me! Look at me!" Barking and dancing around as soon as you open the front door; using his free time to devise elaborate fetching routines to impress you with; smothering you with love, kisses and peanut-butter filled kongs.
On Monday morning a new student joined Blue Class, and Blue Class instantly became all, "Look at me! Look at me!" By lunch time my desk was littered with I Love You cards and Thank You for Teaching Us cards. They had even turned the entire white board into one giant Thank You note, complete with pictures of Shelby, my *actual* Top Dog.
Most of the cards are tacked to walls around my desk, but this gem had to come home with me. It's fridge-worthy, dammit!
From Ashley, who is ambidextrous
and insists upon signing her name with hearts. *SWOON*
An explosion of hearts and stars and rainbows and gumdrops.
No need for words; I think this says it all.
So, how was your day?
