I decided to take Jet to the Marina, a few minutes away. Just me and him and the water. It was a beautiful day. We both love the water. I didn't want to pick him up for fear of hurting his already tender, tight belly, so I assisted him in using the dog ramp to get in and out of the truck.
We were just sitting there looking out over the water when a lady interrupted our thoughts asking if she could use my camera to take some pictures of us. It was then that I turned around seeing a small group of people behind us. They were watching me sitting at the waters edge talking and petting my dog.
As soon as I gave the camera to the lady, Jet came alive. He immediately got back that twinkle in his eye and started performing….. paws over his nose, crossing his paws, etc.
My friend, Patricia put it best….Jet is just like an old actor. You wheel him out onto the stage. He sees an audience and it's showtime. Afterwards, you wheel him off the stage. LOL Pretty much.
It was like all these strangers to us knew there was a story behind our partnership. I shared a little of it with them. One man said, "He doesn't look sick. He is gorgeous." I admit he is pretty comfortable with his fentanyl patch. But, even though we were a short distance from the truck, he got a bit wobbly on the way back. I ended up carrying him the last 100 feet.
We have traveled an interesting road, my friend and I
It's not over yet :)
