The Treat Fairy Waves Goodbye

For the past month Eko has lived the doubly good life thanks to our temporary roommate, my sister Helen.  Helen, or the Treat Fairy, as Eko likes to call her, has spent the past month spoiling Eko at every moment possible.

“Hey, quick! While Will isn’t looking, sneak me some treats!”

But like all good things, Eko’s extra charmed month had to come to an end.  He realized the jig was up this morning when he discovered the tell tale signs of a trip in the making.

“And just when exactly were you planning on telling me about this?”

Like most pups, Eko knows that suitcases mean someone is about to hit the road.  He proceeded to pout all morning and he stood vigil by the door to make sure no one could leave without him.  We brought Eko along for the ride to the airport, but he remained inconsolable.

“Now who am I supposed to hustle for free treats when Will isn’t looking?”

“You had me at ‘hello,’ Treat Fairy”

And so the Treat Fairy spread her wings (or got on a plane with some) and took off for New York City.  Eko will miss her, but he’s consoled by the fact that he’ll see her at Christmas.  With plenty of treats at the ready I’m sure!

  1. I’m sure Eko is hurt by your implying he only misses your sister because she sneaks him treats. She’s a member of the pack!
    And he doesn’t understand how you could be so dumb as to let her escape, although you should have known she would make a run for it because she had her suitcase with her. Why do these stupid humans never learn the telltale signs? It’s unbelievable!

    • Haha very true, the affection and kindness will be missed…but come on, so will the treats! And to borrow/adapt from Billy Shakes, “what fools these humans be”
