Nose prints on the window. When I am walking past the living room, I often notice Lucas’ slobber and nose prints on the glass and think “gotta get out the Windex”. Once a week, I give them a good scrub so when I look out nothing obscures my view and so that people passing by won’t think I am a poor house keeper. Today I was out walking with Diesel and I happened past one of my clients homes and noticed Cooper’s nose prints on the living room glass and I smiled from ear to ear. Instead of seeing smudges or dirty glass, like I do at home, I saw Cooper kisses. I spent the remainder of the walk thinking about perspective, I have been doing a lot of that lately. I thought of a world without Lucas, I’d have clean glass, but I would much rather have smudges…lot’s and lot’s of smudges. I am not saying I won’t clean the glass anymore…I will still clean them off once a week so that he can make new imprints,. What I won’t do, is look at those nose prints as if they are something to feel embarrassed by. Those nose prints let the world know that I am a pet person. Those nose prints are special and will be sorely missed one day.
