It feels like the whole world is shutting down around us due to the coronavirus. Even though I’m one of those people who spends most of her time at home anyway, the pressure to avoid going anywhere or be around people still feels stifling.
I do believe we’ll get through this. Due to personal circumstances, the virus is scarier for some than others. I’m grateful that I don’t have a compromised immune system and for the people still working to keep everyone safe and the country running. Prayers and love from Annie and me to all of you.
This past week Annie has been more playful. I see it partly as a sign that she’s come to accept that little Jasper is gone and also as a sign she likes the extra snuggles I’ve given her lately.
One of the things that happens when Annie wants to play is that she gets the “zoomies”. If you have a dog, you’ve probably witnessed them do this too. Annie gets all excited and will suddenly bolt off running around the house on her stubby legs, her long ears flapping before she races back to where I am. Sometimes she repeats this a few times.
I think it’s funny and cute. When I’m feeling down, it lifts my heart to see Annie dog having fun and being silly.
I’m glad I have her, even more so right now when everyone is supposed to be practicing social distancing. I can cuddle and play with my dog all I want. Take that, coronavirus!
Annie dog and I hope you and your loved ones are all safe. We send you hugs and tail wags!
