While living in Boston, Jim and I went away together for a nice weekend in VT. There I learned to snow ski for the first time, and was introduced to the wonderful world of Cabot Cheese.
When Jim found a B&B that had 2 golden retriever puppies featured on their site - we booked a room right away. I anticipated our arrival to goldens greeting us and sitting with us by a cozy fire.
Imagine my surprise when we arrived to find no goldens. I keep thinking, but the website clearly told me to "come meet Buttercup and Lily". What do I do?.....
Well, I ask, "Where are Buttercup and Lily and can I meet them." I asked several times. Finally after we made friends with the owners - mainly through Jim listened to what seemed like hours of stories about birds and bird watching - we won them over and they agreed to let us see the dogs. The moment arrived.
After breakfast, before we left for skiing, we were told to go wait at a certain spot, and they would bring them to see us. We wondered why it was so hard to just let us see the dogs?! Something must be up - but what?!
