Wordless Wednesday with Several Words


Breaking News


Last night, Sawyer crawled into Dad Tom’s lap and went to sleep right after this photo was taken. This has never happened previously. Sawyer has been voluntarily curling up next to us at to night to sleep for a very long time. Recently, he has been seeking us out during the day and snuggling. But never has he actually crawled into either of our laps!

I took this second photo while I was writing this post.


Breaking News


It’s taken a little more than two years, but it seems as if our little whippersnapper has finally decided to trust us and even maybe likes us. Gives Dad Tom and I warm and fuzzy feelings!

I always hate to write or say it out loud, but Monday was two weeks since Sawyer’s last seizure. (Lately, he has been having a seizure every week.) Praying he doesn’t have one prior to you reading this.

Though I have been wordy here, Sawyer is going to join the Wordless Wednesday blog hop at Comedy Plus.

That deserves a big Awwwww. It’s so rewarding when they decide you’re worthy of their trust.

Wow, that is some awesome news! We are so happy for Sawyer and you and Dad Tom, too! 🙂

Purrs and prayers always for no more seizures!

Harvey and I sat and read this and I got all choked up. We know this feeling so well – the magic as trust appears.

Harvey now allows scritches from his Dad Paul which he used to avoid before. It’s taken years (like Sawyer) but its happened.

Well done Sawyer.

OMC such adorableness!! It’s nice to see Sawyer snuggling with his Dad although I am a bit jealous.
I hope he didn’t get too tired out on our adventure.

Paw pats and headbonks,

I am very happy and smiling big that Sawyer has sought out his Dad for comfort and loves while he goes to sleep in his Dad’s lap. That feeling of joy you both have, you Dad– and Mom, is completely understood by us here in the CB. BIG smile here. This is a wonderful breakthrough. Bless you Sawyer. XXOO

Pam January 15, 2020 at 5:05 am

Oh how adorable….he obviously is finally letting you both know how much he loves you (he always HAS but hasn’t been freely showing it!)……and gets comfort from you. We know that’s a HUGE thing when they finally do that. Sawyer always has you and Tom “there” for him when he’s having a seizure. He’s such a cutie and now he’s showing you both how much he trusts and loves you. That’s HUGE.

Love, Pam
