CHAPTER 39 – My Furry Little Valentine
Abigail sensed something was amiss with Dad. He hadn’t been his usual cheery self all day. As they sat on the floor watching TV, Abigail got up from her spot, and hopped over to Dad and circled his feet. “What’s the matter Dad?” she asked with her big brown eyes.
“Oh Abigail. It’s just one of those human things. It’s Valentine’s Day. Humans have a tradition of celebrating their love for someone special on this day. It’s just been a long time since I’ve had anyone special to call my Valentine,” explained Dad.
Abigail thought about it for a minute and wondered, “But Dad, I thought I was your special someone. Can I be your Valentine?” Dad smiled and reached out his hand to pet her. Abigail lowered her head for a pet. As he gently stroked her head and ran his fingers through her darling little ears, he whispered, “Yes, of course, Abigail. You are my furry little Valentine! I love you with all my heart!”
Abigail thought, “You’re never alone when you have a furry friend who loves you!”
