|Mom! You came back!|
But I was touched that Riley then came over and leaned into me as well. I swear she whispered "Thank you Auntie Jean, I've had a nice visit."
Before she left for her mainland home, we took the dogs for a walk along the beach so Deb could see the new seawalk extension. Deb's friend Lydia walked Mitzi for me, and was quite taken with her (as is most of Crofton - she's such a cute little gaffer!).

Eddie enjoyed the walk too, and was proud to show off "his" beach to our friends.
Then lunch out for Deb, Lydia and me while the dogs had a little snooze. And soon it was time to say goodbye. I felt decidedly teary-eyed as I hugged my very special collie guest goodbye before she climbed up the ramp to Deb's car and into her travel crate (which she was less-than-enthusiastic about).
And then stuck her head out the top for one last "Good bye, Auntie Jean! See you again sometime!"
|Bye, Auntie Jean!|
Come back any time, Riley. You were a wonderful house guest and we loved having you here. We're gonna miss you.
