This is the story of a dog with two families. One family of four, a woman and three children, are the primary owners. The second, two senior citizens, look after the dog when the woman of the first family does night shifts.
The children in the first family walk the dog, help bathe her and play games with her. They sometimes give her morsels of human food. The dog loves being included in family activity and is always eager to go in the vehicle with them. She also sits on the couch on her special blanket.
With the second family, the dog can also lie on her special blanket on the couch. She plays games like find the hidden treat and eats food specially prepared for her to replace or supplement traditional dog food. She goes for walks with the seniors or on picnics where she eats too. She has stare down sessions with squirrels.
Any time the first family visits the second, they bring the dog too. She is reluctant to leave though when they head for home. On her last visit, she hid behind the seniors when the first family was leaving. Then when she finally headed towards the vehicle, she went back to the seniors again. They accompanied her to the vehicle. However, the strangest thing happened when she arrived back home with her first family. The dog refused to leave the vehicle.
The look on her face says it all.
