I continue to be amazed at the sheer joy for life that this incredible and beautiful boy shows to me each and every day. The mere fact that he is able to find ways to amuse himself in my absence speaks volumes as to his high intelligence and youthful exuberance.
I have, since LOKI was rescued and brought to my home, been sleeping outside in his dog run each and every night. LOKI has issues with separation anxiety.
Having gone for his leash training session earlier yesterday, he spent the day quietly, snoozing, being cuddled, sung to, and in the company of his new BFF my own sweet Hemi. Whom I must mention stands vigil to ensure that no intruders approach or disturb LOKI. Mind you he has no control over the Magpies and Mr. Raven who often comes to call.
Last evening was no different, in that I did again sleep outside with LOKI. It is very true what they say about the Full Moon, and the ‘Calling’ that goes on during such an event.
LOKI began ‘calling’ at approximately 10:30 last night, and my plans of attempting to sleep in my own bed for the first time in weeks, was quickly dashed. Donning my snow suit, carrying my tiny foam mattress and numerable fleecy blankets I head out to this big boy.
He of course sat innocently enough on his bedding eagerly awaiting my arrival, of course I did not disappoint him. Placing the tiny mattress in just the right position for myself and close to him, as well as ensuring he had his comy bedding, we settled down for the long night together. Both of us covered nose to tail, head to toe in fleece. Within a few minutes the behind the ear gentle rubs saw this boy sound asleep.
The temperature dropped considerably during the night and I awoke to numb cold toes and ice on his water bowl. Winter and snow is just days away.
Time for me to rise, it is now 8:00 a.m., put the coffee on and prepare LOKI’s breakfast.
Someone once told me that Silence is Golden….hhhhm….dare I believe same?
When I returned to serve a warm breakfast to this most deserving of bed fellows, low and behold what did I find you may wonder?
Youthful exuberance? Perhaps. Impatience waiting for my return? Perhaps. Perhaps it was just the sheer delight of being able to do what he likes to do best. I long ago gave up my attempts to apply human logic to the actions of canine or feline energies. If anything, I continue to be delighted at the various and unending antics of my four legged companions. The beloved family members that continue to bring such joy to my life.
LOKI is the Sole Survivor and he is a Miracle. Living Proof that the impossible becomes possible. He has united people all around the world, total strangers who came together to ensure his safety and his care, to bring him home to me. No longer with a Bulls Eye on his back, the promise I made to him three years ago has finally come to fruition.
