Once A Mom

They have had the girl for two years.
She was a six-year-old Chocolate
Lab puppy-maker and then she was
out on the street. On their first visit to
the vet they were congratulated on hav-
ing an eighty-five pound, six-year-old
puppy. “Yes,” they knew. Yes, six years
without a leash. Two years later and
mostly leash trained, the girl still had
a very strange behavior. Every time
they petted the girl’s belly, she would
lift her leg. And then one day, the light-
bulb lit up almost simultaneously and
they exclaimed, “The puppies! Mom’s                                                                                 inviting her puppies to dinner.”
