My Puppies Care for Everyone

Yesterday I recorded my whole drive out to WonderDogs, where Belle and I take agility classes and Mom and Luka take obedience lessons. When I stopped at Wawa I decided to leave the car running, figuring I’d have some video footage of Belle either not caring I was gone or reeking havoc in my car.

Instead, I have roughly 10 minutes worth of video of Belle crying in my backseat.

While I was watching (literally seconds ago) Luka jumped off my bed and went over to Belle who was sleeping by the door and licked her face until she woke up. She thought her sister was upset and went to comfort her!

But of course Belle woke up and was like “Wasn’t me.” Then they jumped on my bed an stared out the window like “There is a puppy out there who needs love and cuddles! Belle and Luka to the rescue!”

I’m just saying: it was cute and pretty awesome to know my dogs care about each other and other dogs so much.

Her service dog, Ringo, is very proud of all that she has accomplished and hopes to be on a back cover of a published book with her very soon. An avid reader, writer, and lover of young adult and middle-grade literature, Jessica’s bookshelf is overflowing with hardbacks, paperbacks, and a million half-filled notebooks. She is a proud fur-mommy to two lab/st-bernard littermates, a retriever-mix service dog, and one orange little hobgoblin cat, all of whom have made very audible appearances on the Booked All Night podcast.
