Went to my grief support group today. It is so strange, a few months ago we had so many people showing up at our group that we were packed in the small room like sardines. Now for the past few weeks, there has only been about 8 people showing up at each session. We had a surprise today. Our therapist Judy loves dogs and has always had Bearded Collies. A little over a year ago, she lost her beloved dog Mulligan due to a heart problem. She finally decided awhile back that it was time for her to get a new dog. She had been hesitant because she wasn't sure she wanted to fall in love with another dog and then have to go through losing it again in the future. Well, she found another Bearded Collie who needed a home. His name is Billy and he is almost 7 years old. She just picked him up over the weekend and today she brought him to group. He is such a beautiful dog and he is so well behaved. At first he didn't know what to make of all of us but he finally settled down and went to sleep. I keep threatening to bring Hiker to group one of these days. Went to lunch after with a couple of the ladies and then headed home to Hiker. It got up to 95° on my patio this afternoon.
