Toy Introductions Day 9: Sundays Are for SistersPosted: October 9, 2022
Tallulah’s Turn . . .
Birdie and I took a little break from our toys today to enjoy a beautiful morning stroll through New Orleans City Park. I visited City Park with my sister Harper Lee quite a few times. You can click here to see me as a very young puppy on an autumn day in 2015 and here to see me on an early spring day in 2017. I had fun today showing Birdie some the spots I visited with Harper Lee.
Birdie and I love our toys a lot, as you’ve seen, but we love each other even more. Our humans say that they added Birdie to our family so that I wouldn’t be alone when Harper Lee left us one day. To be perfectly honest with you, I wasn’t super excited about the addition for a while. I thought I would have been fine as an only dog. Birdie bonded more with Harper Lee than with me, and I was perfectly pleased to let that happen. And then, a little more than a month ago, Harper Lee left the house and never came back. Birdie and I have been inseparable ever since. We play bitey face on our dog bed and we snuggle for side-by-side naps.
The truth is, if all of our toys disappeared from our basket and the Land of Forbidden Toys was completely emptied, Birdie and I would be happy just having each other. I mean, let’s hope that doesn’t happen, but you get the idea. After we finish our month-long toy introductions, we’re going to continue with the blog. Our human mommy is so thankful to have Harper Lee’s posts to look back on now that Harper Lee has crossed the Rainbow Bridge; she also wants us to be able to create, share, and preserve all the adventures that Birdie and I have. You’ll see some blog transitions throughout October. We’ll also be making some changes to our Instagram and Twitter accounts, but the handles on both will remain @thek9harperlee, because Miss Harper Lee will always be the foundation of everything.
Moving forward is a funny thing. In some ways, it means leaving the past behind. In other ways, it means building on where you were, what you did, and who was there with you. I’m thankful that Birdie and I will be able to travel along our own blogging path together. I’m even more thankful that Harper Lee created a beautiful legacy for us to continue. Sundays are for sisters, and Birdie and I had the best in Harper Lee.
