There is no filling the hole Mabel left when she left us.
Well, life goes on and all that. Grieving is a time consuming process. Why not fill it with something worthwhile. Like training a puppy? Or two?
So. We've taken in a couple of baby giants that would probably cause Mabel to roll her eyes.
Lily is a Great Pyrenees. Clover is an Irish Wolfhound.
Meanwhile, Lois is not the sort of gal who rolls her eyes. Still, sweet Lois is ten and feeling the years. Even so, no. Lois didn't roll her eyes. At first, Lois was not thrilled with the appearance of these two wild babies. But Lois being sweet Lois, has warmed up to them.
Perhaps she remembers when Mabel was a pup.
Things have a way of working out.
