Pre covid days.
“Bye Pippi” Covid Kid calls to me as she swishes out the door. I watch as she peddles away and silently mark her off my list.
Her brother left a little while ago, Mum following suit not long after, leaving me with only ‘Dad’.
I hope that today maybe the one they call Dad will stay at home all day, but they gave me that bone this morning, like they every Monday.
So I deduce that Dad will be leaving soon… And alas, I am right.
The door swings shut and I am alone to contemplate what I am going to do today.
Maybe cause some mischief…
During Covid days.
All the day long they don’t leave me. All day I have friends. Albeit sometimes stressed friends, maybe something to do with that Covid person… but never mind. Who cares?
I have friends and family around me all day! Ready to play tug-on-a-sock or do stomach scratchies all day long! At that moment I think my life is perfect! Woof!
