Once upon a time your NanaT visited a faraway place called Greece, and she loved that place very much. One night she was going out to eat the yummy Greek food with your NanaSlo and their friends because the yummy Greek food was one of her favorite attractions while she visited the faraway place.
On their walk to get the yummy Greek food, a little white dog appeared on the steps in front of your NanaT. The little white dog was very dirty with curly fur that had not been combed for a long, long time.
Your NanaT stopped to sit on a large stone next to the steps. And can you guess what she did next?
She petted the little white dog for a long time, gave it one of her best smiles and then followed the little dog home to make sure it wasn’t lost.
This story has a moral for you, Ella James. Your NanaT has always believed in rescuing both people and animals in distress. As you grow older, you will most assuredly see her strength and determination to make your world a better place in action. You are a very lucky little girl. Imagine the love your NanaT will give you, her special granddaughter, if she made a place in her heart for a little white dog in a faraway place.
Happy Birthday, Pretty – thank you for rescuing me twenty years ago – you’re simply the best.
Pretty’s Greatest Gift
Stay safe, stay sane and stay tuned.
