Last night I came out of the back bedroom and Ginger spotted me first …
GINGER (lighting up and dashing over before Charlie could get to me): Oh, it’s you! Yay! Hello!
ME (giving her a scratch behind the ear): Hey, cutie.
CHARLIE (looking wounded) DADDY!!!!! (turns and throws himself into Tim’s arms) Daddy! She petted the other dog first!
TIM (hugging Charlie): It’s ok.
CHARLIE: *whimper, whimper, hug, hug*
LURA (scratching Charlie behind the ears): That’s our big bruiser …
GINGER: Boys. So emotional.
CHARLIE: Stop it! This used to be all about me before she came!
