Last night Kruizer's boy was having a hard time. A really hard time. He was very distraught and seemingly inconsolable.
For over an hour he lay on the floor crying. And for that entire time Kruizer stayed with him, providing a huge calming influence to an otherwise chaotic situation. As my son cried, he would lay on Kruizer, stroking his fur, petting his ears.
It was very loud and tense, but not once did Kruizer leave his side. He never showed any signs of distress or agitation. He seemed determined to see his boy through -- and that's exactly what he did.
The screams became less frequent, the crying softer until finally his boy was calm. Even after the episode was over, Kruizer stuck by his boy's side the rest of the evening, as if to guard him from further trouble.
The whole scene was pretty amazing. We actually had our therapist over at the time and she was utterly amazed. She was thoroughly impressed with his demeanor, his calm, his love.
And we love him. He's become a pet and is part of our family. But last night we remembered what makes him so special. He did exactly what he was raised to do - and he did it incredibly well.
Today we're proud of our dog. We also have great appreciation for those who raised and trained him. You done good. Very good.
Is it Over Yet?
