My dad told me that this evening my cousin and best friend, Lily, will be going away forever. I'm not sure what to think or really what they mean. Lily doesn't wrestle with me much any more. My dad cooks her ground beef, chicken, hot dogs, rice, and gives here lots of dog bones and puppy jerky, but she lets me eat most of it. She tells me that she's not really all that hungry. My dad has been hollering at me a lot when he catches me eating all those goodies he leaves out for Lily. I feel bad about eating her treats (sometimes), but hey, it would be a shame to let it go to waste, right? Last night Mommy and Daddy were giving Lily lots of love and crying, so I climbed in their laps and cuddled with them and dad told me he'll be needing me to do that a lot this weekend.
