Little girls usually have dolls…or sister of friends to play dress up with. My son on the other hand had our sweeter than sugar English Cocker Spaniel named Lady to fill that gap. From the time he was in kindergarten, Jared’s mind thought of all things military. So, naturally it was just logical for Lady to be in his wing or flight or whatever they call it in the USAF.
You can tell from the look on her face she was totally thrilled to have been conscripted into duty .
Lady was my special little angel. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a sweeter natured dog, so of course she tolerated this with patience and grace…and a few really strange body movements… I miss her to this day. If I think about her long enough I begin to tear up, but for almost five years there has been this little fellow in our house that has slowly but surely climb the ladder to Ladydom status…and he knows it. Shout out to my dog and Wonderkin Watsonthe Miniature Schnauzer.
