Isn't She Lovely?

I've been laying low for two days now with a cough + lower back thing and my dear Annie has been my cozy companion and court comedian. This morning, after multiple trips down the stairs, and quite a while in the kitchen, she prepared this lovely breakfast tray for she and I. She also stepped up to clean the kitchen so that it didn't pile up, and ran many small "fetching" errands around the house for me, so I didn't have to get up.

*Blink*

*Blink*


Not that she isn't helpful and willing on a regular basis, but she has never made me a meal, cleaned the kitchen or taken responsibility on like she's done the last two days.

*Can you hear the triumphant choir from above singing
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah?*


Wow! I can. For the first time I'm getting a small glimpse of how, after eight years of what seems like constant giving and doing for her, there might be more shared responsibility and independence down the road.


And...
Isn't she so lovely?

She is a darling girl, inside and out...hope you're feeling better soon because I get such a kick out of the many things you two do.
