This is Dacianna — affectionately known as Daci [DAH-see]. I call her “my cuddle bug.” We have three huskies — all of them awesome in their own way — but Daci is special to me. Without any special training, she seems to be attuned to my needs. Whenever I’m feeling down, she lies down next to me, pressing herself into me like a hug. I have trouble getting to sleep, as my mind is prone to frolicking. When I do get to sleep, I frequently have nightmares. So, come bedtime, she snuggles up to me. Her closeness comforts and helps me to sleep through the night. As a matter of fact, as I type this, she’s lying at my feet. She’s always taking care of me.
My thought of the night is simple. A very stressful week at work has reminded me of how much this beautiful lady means to me. Animals have always made great companions, but sometimes, if you’re lucky, you find one that knows you better than you know yourself.
