Now this is such a curious thing. Kylie has a basket full of stuffed toys I keep in a wicker basket in the kitchen.
She has two that are her favorite. One is a well loved monkey (meaning the stuffing, part of an ear, and eyes are long gone) and a lime green lamb chop who is close to being just as well loved as Mr. Monkey.
The other toys? Well, they are sort of like the misfits on Misfit Island in the Rudolph Christmas tale. They just sit in the basket waiting and waiting for someone to love and play with them.
And then the most curious thing happened. Kylie dug to the bottom of the basket and pulled out the heart stuffed toy. She carried it proudly in her soft jowls into the bedroom and hopped up on the bed next to John.
Was she proclaiming her love for John? Does she know Valentine’s Day is around the corner? Is she hinting at wanting biscuits (since dog’s can’t have chocolate as you know)?
Whatever the message may be we marveled at how adorable and sweet she looked with the red heart.
No doubt in our mind she is a heart dog… put perhaps she thought we forgot (of which we never would!) and it was her way of reminding us.
Oh, Kylie… how you make our hearts gush with love for you!
