I woke up with a pretty serious migraine this morning. After a couple doses of Imitrex, my head felt better but I was wiped out, so I closed my eyes and drifted off to sleep.
Then I felt someone licking my elbow. I opened my eyes to see two big, brown, soulful basset hound eyes looking into mine. Now, I don’t know anyone with a basset hound, nor does my ex-husband, in whose home I am staying for now. (long story… I am staying in my daughter’s room). Anyway, I reached over, petted the dog several times. She never made a sound, just looked me over, turned, and walked back out of the room.
Turns out, my older daughter and my son-in-law went to the shelter today and brought home a basset hound.
All I know is an elbow lick from a basset is one of the loveliest ways I can think of to wake up. I drifted back off to sleep with a smile on my face.
