I’m playing in the snow, sniffing for hidden treasure, when I smell her. I know she’s close. I lift my head, alert to any sounds.
Her scent is strong now, and I break into a run. I’m too excited to think. She’s been gone for so long, I can hardly believe she’s in the neighborhood again.
Now I see her, and burst toward her. I feel true happiness. My human is back. I have no idea where she’s been, and all I want now is a cuddle.
I drag her home and sit on her. I’m not letting her go. Kristina is my human.
