Both in bliss
My brother’s second oldest child Rachel has always loved animals. In fact, she possesses an ability to communicate with them in some weird unspoken language that should probably be investigated by National Geographic or perhaps the government because for all we know she and a stable of horses could be plotting a coup.
I believe she hopes to work with animals when she grows up, and the sad reality right now is that my brother can’t really get a dog what with the chaos of the five children running amok in his home. So she gets her fill of canine love with Coco when she comes over. I may have told her that I wouldn’t press charges if she stashed that dog in the trunk of her dad’s car and took it home. In fact, I offered her money to do so. In fact, I stashed Coco in my brother’s trunk.
