Mr. Buddylee has been visiting his Great Aunt Edith in the nursing home for 2 years. Now that brother Mosey is with us, we have 2 pups that make the trip. Monday was a particularly emotional visit because our Aunt is in her final days of being consumed by Parkinson’s disease. This photo, has Buddylee out of site lying at the foot of the lounge chair and Mosey (the 9 pound lap dog) lying peacefully on Edith. The white headphones added her favorite music to the visit. Although little Mosey shifted his position several times, he was quietly comforting his Great Aunt for over an hour, and she responded by gently stroking his body.
I posted this image on Facebook Monday afternoon and by Tuesday evening, there were 500 “likes” and over 100, heartfelt, comments. A sad, yet comforting day.
