Monday Memories-Ice Cream
When Blaze first came back, it was quite heartbreaking and very difficult to say the least. Witnessing the aftermath of this sweet little girl who'd been beaten and shot at was devastating. She had become a shell of herself. How many nights and days I wept over this tiny girl who I watched be born and grow with so much love, only to have it all shattered.
Since Blaze was separated from the other dogs and we were just starting to introduce her to Zappa, she was alone when I would spend time with the Back Dogs. She would get on the kitchen island and bark with persistence until I would come back where she would wag her tail and jump down with this huge smile on her face. Trying to operate with our new addition to the family and the special circumstances that ensued was quite trying to say the least. My nerves would be on end, I would be exhausted and wore and Blaze didn't make it very easy.
There was something special about that secret girl time together and now anytime it's been 'one of those days,' I pull out the ice cream and a couple spoons and Blaze and I have a little girls getaway.
