While attending a poetry forum a few years ago, I found myself bored nearly to tears by the pedantic drivel spewing forth all around me. As I glance about the room in search of an exit, I came across another individual doing the same. Though neither of us were able to successfully manage our escape that afternoon, we were able to add a new acquaintance to our mobiles. Through the ensuing years we bumped into one another finding that we generally ended such serendipitous encounters holding cool cups of coffee and a smile.

Three months ago, another such encounter occurred. This time in a hospital waiting room. It was at that time that I informed my acquaintance that, "If you need anything, call; I will be happy to help in any way needed.". I walked away full of charcoal colored thoughts and a vague notion that I may be driving someone to chemo treatments in the near future. As it turned out, I became the owner of a four year old cockapoo that spoke a language that was not part of my repertoire.

Though sharing my life with a pet was not part of my plan for this year, I have enjoyed having this particular one in my world. He is well behaved, intelligent, goofy and now over his sorrow. I am grateful for the trust of the acquaintance who gave me such a friend as Thatcher.

What a touching story Kate and so glad you shared it, you never know where your life will lead you, often where you dont expect. I hope Thatcher brings a new and unexpected dimension to yours :D

Allytoe,

Thank you for the complement.
Yes, it has been an odd confluence of emotion.
However, I believe you will agree with me that he appears to be at home in his new surroundings.
Again, thank you for your comments.

Kate

MillieDog,

Thank you for the complement on Thatcher's appearance.
I have been thinking him a mess and have been searching for a trustworthy groomer.
Point of fact: after bathing him last night, I trimmed his ears and whiskers (or eyebrows) a bit so that he might see with added clarity & so that I might see him see me. :)
Again thank you much.

Kate

lady amanda,

Thank you for your comments.
Yes, I agree they are wonderful animals.
Though he may have come through sorrowful circumstances,
I have enjoyed welcoming a cockapoo into my home once again.
Thatcher is a joy.

Again, thank you.

Kate
