empty nest

Harry and Milly, the Papillon dogs that make the empty nest more bearable (part 3)

“They are absolutely child replacements, although I try to treat them like dogs, not babies.

Getting them when my last daughter left home, made having an empty home more bearable.

There was no longer silence when I opened the front door.

I feel like I am never alone.

They will also never grow up, like my children did.

They will never leave home, or prefer to be with their friends.

Having the dogs has been a constant in our lives.”
