The doorbell rings. I blast out my doggie bed, slide across the newly stained hardwood floor and hustle down the stairs.
I push my human, Matt, out of the way. It’s very Important I get to the door first. There could be danger on the other side. There could be a friend. You just never know. I choose friend and wag and wiggle as best I can.
I can’t open the door by myself. I bark at Matt, wiggle some more. Doesn’t he get the urgency. “Come on, buddy,” I bark.
I then I hear it. A voice I’ll never forget. It’s Joe. I’m sure it’s Joe. I haven’t seen him since I was one. That’s five years.
I jump up, trying to get Matt to hurry. He laughs and opens the door. I explode through.
We bound, we rough-house, we run around in circles. The humans stand back and watch.
My muscles are sore, I’m panting hard. I think It’s time for a break. I invite Joe in to share my bed. We used to snuggle together all the time, but something has changed.
This is us 5 years ago.
This is us now.
I think the bed got smaller, but I still love Joe.

Looks like you both got lighter in colour as you got older. But friendship always remains close.
Kristina’s hair gets lighter all the time, but usually it’s after she’s used some smelly stuff out of box. Mine is natural! Hee hee.
My human’s hair starts to get lighter at her roots. She calls it gray. Then she gets out smelly stuff and it gets dark again

Friends are wonderful gifts. No matter how far away or how long it has been since the last time you see them, you can pick up where you left off just like it was yesterday! So cool!
Yup. Joe is my Friend For Life – FFL. 🙂
