mystic and andy...
mystic and andy are let out to pee..they run over to the fence to see jesse.
"jesse! jesse! why are you over there???"
jesse looks sad but gives them a half hearted tail wag...
"i don't know why i am here but i want to be over there.
mystic said..."here's my teddy, you can chew on him if you want." and drops her teddy in front of jess but on the wrong side of the fence.
andy sticks his nose thru the fence and gives jesse a little lick of encouragement, "i miss you jesse, you are my very best friend."
jess is glad to see his friends, but it makes him feel sad that they are not together... and he has no idea why either.
whatever happened between him and fergie happened a couple of days ago..jesse doesn't even remember it...and neither does fergie.
fergie is thinking about the big yellow ball...jesse is thinking about not liking where he is and feeling sad..and mystic and andy are just bewildered and confused and a little concerned that there is a fence between them and their friend.
ahhh dogs..they can bring you great joy, they can break your hearts and piss you off...but geez thru it all..they are fascinating beings...so simple and yet so heartrending complex.
i have thought of a compromise..once everyone is ready for bed at night and all of the doors in and out and the gates to and fro are closed...jesse can come back in the house to sleep in the dog room because fergus and all of the little hyperactive freaks who piss jesse off will be safely closed and gated in my bedroom.
it is the best i can do.
