We have wonderful, kind and loving friends – Katheryn and Norma – who also love dogs. Katheryn had told me how much her dog loved his ‘Wubba’. A week or so ago they turned up to meet Joni with a big bag full of toys and treats for her (and a bunch of flowers for me). They apologized that the toys did not include a Wubba, as they had not managed to find one. It didn’t matter to Joni, who knew nothing about it and who loved all the toys in the bag and loved Katheryn and Norma, of course (what puppy wouldn’t appreciate friends who turn up with bags of gifts and make a big fuss of you?).
Only a few days later, there was a knock on the door. When I opened it, there was Katheryn, with a brand new Wubba for Joni. It has become one of her most favourite toys. I have been trying to get a photograph of her playing with it, so that they could see what a success it was, but it has not been easy. It’s a toy that has to be shaken and thrown about, not the easiest thing to catch on a still photograph. Yesterday, as Joni paused for breath, I did finally catch that moment. #JonisDiary #AdayinthelifeofJoni #fansofJoni #puppy
