Love is...a chocolate lab called Milk Dud
First date with my husband, he invited me to his home. I remember gripping my purse strap as I walked up the path, wondering if I had made a mistake. The freshly painted craftsman bungalow helped with the doubt but it wasn't till I saw the big chocolate lab waiting on the veranda that I smiled.
She was hunkered down in the entrance, huge paws hanging over the top step. I was still ten feet away when her tail began thumping at the boards. By the first step, I was laughing and she had hauled herself up to greet me, entire body wagging. My future husband may have been standing there but all I remember is crouching down, smoothing those soft, warm ears and planting a kiss on Milk Dud's beautiful chocolate head. Lucky for Milk Dud and me, her human was just as lovable.
