and so we walked…

We walked – Roxy and I – fast friends slow on pumpkin pie. We weren’t normally ones to shy from work. In fact, we each owned 50% of a bakery that sold only baked goods for dogs called The Best Bites. How our husbands had laughed at us! We were told all the reasons it wouldn’t work, and only Roxy and I believed all the reasons why it would work. No, neither of us on that day owned dogs. But we had grown up on neighboring farms where there were always dogs. Our top sellers at the bakery are the “Green Gobbers” cookies (made with lots of broccoli), and the “How About a Little Bacon, Over Here!” bite size bacon biscuits. But just this once, we wanted the peace of an old country road settling into sunset to clear our minds. And so we walked.
