Rodriguez/Bear - Round 15
Dana just smiled at Sharon. "Yes, take it! Open it!"
Sharon opened the present and smiled. "It's all the dog's things? I don't understand..."
"It's for you. For your dogs. You know they're more yours than ours anyways. We've taken good care of them while you were away at college, but they've missed you!"
Sharon clutched the dog bone to her chest. "Really? You talked to Mom? It's okay? I've missed them! Where are they? Midniiiight! Baby! Graaaace" she called.
Dana laughed. "They're all crated up and ready to go home with you!"
Sharon hugged her sister. "I love you! Thank you so much! I want to get them home and settled. I'll come visit soon!"
Dana watched Sharon run off to get her puppies loaded up for the ride home. She acted like she would be glad they were gone, but knew deep down, she was going to miss the dogs, too.
Dana laid Ruby in her crib and sighed. A boy and a girl. Perfect. She loved the idea that Randy would be the older brother who would take care of his baby sister.
