A Boy and His Dog

Lately, Austen has been very attentive to Adler.  When he wakes up in the morning he always kneels down next to her and pets her and asks her how she's doing.  And, more often than not now he'll just randomly sit down next to her and start petting her or talking to her.

This past week, Adler very playfully stole one of Peyton's doll. While Peyton whined that Adler took her doll Austen calmly went up to Adler and retrieved the doll. But not wanting Adler to feel left out, he went and picked up one of Adler's toys and gave it to her so she would have something to play with.

Yesterday, I was telling him as we pet Adler together that we have to love Adler every minute we have her now because dogs don't live as long as people and someday she won't be with us.

"Will we get another dog?," he asked.  "I don't think so," I said.

There will never be another Adler.
