Pearl: Guardian Dog

Next to Teddy Bears, dogs were on the list of Grandma Betty's favorite things. Dogs and cute, little children. Since I don't have any little kids anymore, I brought Pearl up to Betty's room for a day. Pearl surprised me. She didn't bark at all of the fun people she saw and didn't try to leave the room to go exploring all of the exciting new places to check out around the home. Instead she curled up on the end of Betty's bed and did what Maltese dogs do naturally–be a loving companion. I don't know if Betty felt her presence in that room at the end of her bed, but I thoroughly enjoyed her calm demeanor and comfort. Her soft, white fluff and warm, cuddly, little body made it easier to sit there in the room and give comfort to Betty. Thank God for dogs.

My Faithful Assistant

I read today about a dog who called 911 when his human was having a seizure. Dogs are truly amazing creatures. I can't begin to imagine life without Pearl. She's my constant companion, curled up under my desk all day long.
