On the counter sat 25 homemade Swedish cupcakes.
Earlier that day our 11-year-old neighbor and her friend had stopped by to play with Wilson.
They could see I was very busy cooking and setting the tables for a big dinner party.
After a while they left, but were back about an hour later.
“How many people will be at your dinner party?”
“What time does it start?”
“OK, good, we have time to make dessert for your party.”
I said, “We already have two gourmet desser…oh, you like to bake? Sure, of course, that would be lovely, girls. Thank you so much.”
A few hours later they came back in their aprons with a platter of their signature cupcakes.
One cupcake was very different from the rest, the girls made it for Wilson. And it just so happens that Wilson’s wonderful veterinarian and her husband were guests at the dinner party that night. Being in the midst of a remodel, they came into the kitchen to discuss ranges and noticed the platter of cupcakes. Dr. Jones took a closer look, “Is that …dog kibble??” I shared the story of the cupcakes, and how fortunate Wilson and I are to have such kind and generous neighbors.
Happy Adoption Day
Thank you for sharing your home and showering Wilson with love.
We are thrilled that you love all things that snort and snore –
and bring so much joy to our lives. Wishing you and Wilson a “pawtastic’ adoption day!
I adopted Wilson 5 years ago from Boston Buddies Southern California Boston Terrier Rescue.
Wilson is 8 years old now; we got him after Homer passed. Five years ago, poor Wilson was brutally attacked by another dog, his eye severely damaged. And then, as if things couldn’t get any worse, his previous owners decided to dump him at a shelter. Boston Buddies rescued Wilson, but were unable to save his eye. Yet, in spite of his bad experience, Wilson is a love bug. I read about him on their website and soon after, he came to live with us. He and Mrs. O’Mally were great pals.
On a very sad note, just this week Wilson’s blood work indicated the onset of Cushing’s Disease. This is heartbreaking news, as my previously rescued Bostons, Mrs. O’Mally and Homer, both passed away from complications related to the disease two years after showing symptoms. In the meantime, Wilson will continue to receive top notch medical care, unlimited love and affection, fluffy pillows, long walks, play dates with the neighbors, and special treats…including an occasional doggie cupcake.
