7/365: Therapy Dog

Lucy has been my steadfast companion for almost a decade now, and she always seems to know when I need extra loving. She came into my room this evening, lay her head on the bed next to me, and looked so soulfully at me that I could have sworn she was telling me, just rest, you need it. Indeed I do; an old back/shoulder injury has been flaring lately and the pain is intense, even waking me up sometimes. Having Lucy beside me is the best medicine... she always gives, never complains, but I know she has pretty bad arthritis in her legs these days, so I comfort her whenever I can, too.
