This is Marley.
Also known as Poowee, for reasons that will become obvious.
Marley is my daughter’s 18th Birthday present.
Which means, she’s a present to the whole family.
When I say present, I mean we all get to clean up after her
and retrieve our socks and slippers (hopefully before it’s too late)
but she does this thing with her eyes (which she learned at birth)
that says, ‘Oh I am so sorry, no really, entirely my fault. Can you ever forgive me?’
And of course we do.
She now scratches at the door for toilet time.
Which is great.
Now someone just has to teach her that outside is for toilet
inside is for sleeping…
