Aaron has still not told his family that we have a dog. We’ve had her over a month, and they still don’t know. Every time they call, I ask if today will be the day. Every time they Facetime, I let her out of her kennel so maybe they’ll get a glimpse and ask him about her. Still nothing.
Thursday, we’re traveling to Indianapolis to see his dad and step-mom, and I still don’t know whether Sammie is coming with us. At first, he told me we’d bring her along and tell them about her after we left – surprise!! Then he said he was going to ask one of his friends to watch her. I’m sorry, but I don’t want to leave her with someone else… WE’RE her family, and I don’t think she’d understand. Not yet. Sometimes, I get the sense that she’s afraid we’re leaving her for good when we go somewhere. To leave her with someone she doesn’t know for three whole days? I don’t think I can do that to her.
So, dear readers, how do I convince my boyfriend that today needs to be the day? And how does he tell his family that he has a dog he hasn’t been telling them about for so long?
