Something wonderful happened this week-end - I got Maggie for almost two days! She is an Australian terrier and I got to 'babysit' her.
Her owners were supposed to go to France on a romantic week-end - this has not happened, but I still got her because they (rightly) thought that I would have been terribly disappointed if I had not got her as promised.
She is cute and smart and loving and sweet and and and ... This week-end has just reminded me how much I miss having a pet. Or more!
And I felt a lot less lonely.
