This pretty much sums things up.
Coulee found a ball so she kept dropping it at my feet and stared happily at me waiting for the throw.
It doesn't matter if the throw never comes. She never loses her optimism.
And Lacey brought us dead body parts. This was a nice little bit of deer she decided to bring me. I keep asking for flowers (heck I'd be happy with twigs!), but she never seems to listen. ;)
