She's taking care of a new pup, a frisky ADHD animal named Leo. When he came at 8 AM on Friday morning she wanted nothing more than to stay home from work and play with him. I went walking with her and Leo around the gardens last evening, and he does indeed have a joyful, irrepressible spirit. I do love these twilight walks with my daughter and whatever dog is in her care. She's always so happy when dog sitting. She almost applied to a job once, for no other reason than it advertised itself as a "dog friendly loft space office." But she didn't. At the job she does have she's pretty busy right now, as one of the fanciest big-donor fundraising events of the year is coming up. She is part of a special events team changed with staging it all. She's fallen back in love with her job lately. She's in her element, good at what she does. Then again, that girl would need only to smile at me once and I'd empty my pockets for her cause.
