The other night Kaia yelled out for us to call "Zoe". We called for Zoe, our little Maltese and the "and a dog" part of my blog title, to come to us. This is what we found. A message from Kaia asking us to come down the hall to turn off her light for her! We sent Zoe back with a message that said, "We would be right there. Now GO TO SLEEP." If you look closely in all her white fur, you will see the message rolled and attached with a pretty blue bow! It is the fun little things like messages on a doggie's back that I want to remember forever. The time Kaia was still young enough to be scared of getting up and turning her own light off and the cute little idea she had by using our dog as her own personal messenger! Isn't she cute? The dog that is! And Kaia too!
