What do you dream about when you fall asleep Ickey? Do you dream of Heidi?
Do you remember how when Heidi first came to live with us, she was very shy and afraid. Toys? No thanks. I rather sit here and not get in trouble. Pack mates? Heidi would bark and growl if Ickey and Michelle tried to get close to her.
After a couple of months, Heidi was more comfortable in the house. Toys? Thanks Ickey. Pack mates? Come on Ickey, let’s play next to each other.
Approximately one year ago, my wife and I were sitting at a Chinese restaurant. While we were waiting for our food, we saw a couple leave the restaurant. When I looked over at their table, I saw that they had left behind a plate of fried rice that was virtually untouched.
I pointed out the plate of fried rice to my wife and we both laughed. We both had the same thought in our heads.
If Michelle, Ickey, and Heidi went to the Chinese restaurant, the owners would have definitively tried to sell the plate of fried rice to Ickey.
Chinese restaurant owner: Ickey, you should get the fried rice. It’s today’s special
Ickey: oh okay
:::Owner hands Ickey the fried rice:::
Ickey: that was quick.
I think I remember this story today because I knew that Heidi loved Ickey and that she would have wanted us to look after Ickey.
