My grandmother (My father’s mother) was a rather unique woman. Her kind, loving and generous personality would always be remembered by those who knew her. Even though she passed away many years ago, the memory of her will always remain in my mind.
Here is one of the memories that stood out: Before going to sleep at night, she would say her prayers and after praying to the Creator, she would go outside and talk to both of her dogs individually; she made it her priority to say, “Goodnight, Rex.” And, “Goodnight, Barnabas.”
Now, how many people do you know that tell their dogs, “Goodnight,” before going to sleep? Maybe, a small number of people, or probably none at all.
Although, I may not remember to tell my dog, “Goodnight,” on a nightly basis, I always see to it that I tell her, “Good morning.” Some people may perceive such behaviour as being strange, but when one truly sees their beloved pet as a part of their family, they treat them as such.
