I found this among a bunch of papers in Niamh’s room the other day. It was like finding treasure.
I love finding her notes and cards.
I love that she is writing to our two dumb dogs.
I wonder if she really thinks they can read.
I wonder if she ever gave them the card and it just ended up back in her room.
Would she have given it to Fred or Gus? Gus would be the one I’d think could read if I was 7 years old.
Have I ever written about when I was Niamh’s age and thought that our dog, Gypsy, was my grandfather reincarnated? I had never even met my grandfather. Obviously, I wanted to know him in some capacity.
I wouldn’t get undressed in front of my dog when I thought he was my grandfather reincarnated.
Kids are weird.
This note wasn’t dated but it looks like it was written when the dogs were neutered and had to wear cones.
This was the envelope.
Dear Dogs, I know that you want to get your cone off but I can’t do anything about it. Love, Niamh
