Annie is sleeping right out in the open and by that I mean she is just like the other dogs in the household. It wasn’t supposed to be this easy and it wasn’t at first. When she came, she was anxious about finding her spots, the places were she declared herself safe, and those spots were all tucked away spaces. We moved dog beds into nooks and corners to give her choices that suited. At night, she sleeps in a cozy little dog nest by the side of our bed, but now during the day you may find her anywhere, right out in the open, like she lives here and all the space is hers. You may think I’m crazy, but I see that as the echo of an act of kindness, what happens when you say yes to an animal, because “yes” is an energy that cuts through all sorts of sorry stuff that can leave that animal, or a person, all tangled up. Say yes. Whenever you can, say yes.
