Fergie, just quickly I need to share a story about Titan with you. It isn't a ghost story, but it is something that makes you go "hmmm". Titan, was my son Joshua's dog. He wasn't quite 2 years old and weighed 110 pounds of pure muscle. His back was literally waist high on me, and on his hind legs, my face was in his chest! BIG dog. Anyway, after Josh passed and it came to be unavoidable for my daughter and I to move, it also became apparent to me that it would be cruel to force Titan into being an apartment dog. He was use to 3/4 of an acre to run on and a boy to run with. So with heavy heart, I set about finding him a new home. I interviewed over 20 families who wanted him, but always found an excuse to say no. None of them felt 'right' to me or Titan. Finally a young couple came with a month old baby. I told them I didn't know how Titan was with small kids. So we put the baby down on the floor and stood back. I wasn't afraid that he would purposely hurt a child, but he was a rough and tumble dog. Titan took to that baby like a duck to water. Nudging him ever so gently and then lying down right next to him and looking at me as if to say, "This is the one." We allowed them to just be together for about an hour, while I felt these people out. They lived on a farmette, lots of room, and no he wouldn't be an outside dog but a pet and companion. The woman picked up the baby and dropped his blanket. I watched Titan pick it up and hand it to her, and she patted his head. Yes, these were a good match my heart said. I asked the baby's name, and it sealed the deal for me. Joshua.

Oh Miracles! I think you have stated you opinion of those horrible people very eloquently, and the terrors they should endure. Thank you! 😐

Ray and I couldn't think of anyone else, that Zeus would get so excited about, let alone play with in the middle of the night; only Angel. Lol, I wish she would do that again!

Thank you for the heart-felt comment. ❤

Fergie - my feelings are right there with Val's and granny'd have to delete my comment too 'cause I wanted to spew some very not nice words all over the place. When I was younger, two of our cats were poisoned. It's been 35 years and I still haven't quite gotten over that 😢

I think you know I agree with you about Angel paying a visit, just checking up on you and Ray and/or just a way of letting y'all know she was there.

Thanks for the story, Fergie 😊

Okay, I couldn't just end it without saying something. People like that just piss me the hell off and I hope they rot in whatever hell there is! 😠

Thanks Val, glad you enjoyed it.

Yeah! My opinion of people who poison animals, is unprintable too! 😠

We would also like to know who frequents our kitchen. And, only at night! It has been only once, that I can remember, that Zeus has shown fear in any other part of the house; that was past the kitchen door, and at the bend of our L shaped passage.

Aha! So you have also known the love of a "Lab"? Amazing, isn't it? ❤

Oh, I like this one, Fergie! Well, except for the dog poisoning part. That just made me mad. Granny would so have to delete my comment for language if I said what I thought of people like that.😐 Dogs are wonderful creatures. My Titan was lab/dobie mix too, so I know that deep bark as well.
I think your right that it was Angel that came to play, but I wonder who it is in the kitchen?

Lol Granny, there have to be 'nice' stories sometime, eh? 😉

Yeah, I guess you are correct; we were woken at that specific time for a reason, or else we may have missed the shenanigans in the lounge, or been too groggy to take notice.

Thank you for a lovely comment! ❤

Fergie: Finally, a story Miracles can get through 😆!

I believe you're right in your assumption. You know I don't believe in coincidences, so being awakened at that time was meant to be 😊.

Thank you for posting such a heart warming story! ❤
