Indi getting her red vest off, which officially marked two weeks post-amputation, was the perfect occasion to give her the smoked bone from Lauren. (Don’t read into the symbolism.) I thought she might have some trouble chomping on it with only one front paw, but she did great.
The day after Indi’s surgery Lauren stopped by with a gift. My roommate Hannah (Sam’s mom) greeted her at the door and said, “Raina is here, hold on one second.” But Lauren said, “No, no, I’m just dropping this by, I don’t want to be a bother” and she scurried away.
I came into the living room to find a large brown paper bag. On it Lauren wrote, “Here is something for Indi when she feels better, and something for you while you hang out with her.” Inside was a giant smoked marrow bone for Indi– her favorite– and a bottle of wine and some chocolate for me.
Lauren is a new friend who has only met Indi a couple times. But her thoughtful gesture was done with the love of a dear old friend.
