You know you've been to too many funerals lately when you have a conversation with your daughter at bedtime that goes like this:
Me: That's nice that you're hugging your puppy so lovingly.
Her: She's sad. Her puppies died, and we had a funeral for them today.
Me: Oh - wow - um, that's so sad.
Her: Yes, so I'm hugging her and I gave her a card and some flowers, and the card said, "I'm sorry about your puppies. I hope you feel better. Love N."
Me: I'm sure that made her feel better.
Her: Yes, she's feeling better, and she's also going to have more puppies soon, so that's making her happy.
That dog works fast.
