Lola, the proud and independent Irish Setter (the spouse, part 4)

“That moment was about terror and relief.

We were so relieved to have her back after thinking the worst happened to her.

I have never had a relationship with a dog like I have with Lola.

I think that’s due to age and my time in life.

When I had Shannon I was young, building a career and starting and raising a family.

I am retired now and I spend every day with Lola and my partner.

She reads us, and we her.

We have an emotional understanding and I think it’s from proximity and time.

Your kids grow up and they have their own lives, but with a beloved dog, your time is always in the present.”
