I have a lovely little chocolate brown chihuahua. I love her dearly! The summer before my freshman year of college i was dreading leaving my little companion behind. The summer flew by and before i knew it i needed to pack up and move into my assigned dorm, but not before an ikea run.
Strolling through the endless maze of ikea, i found this rug. Petting it i said to my mom, “it’s so soft, like dixie.” My bottom lip stuck out and i sighed. “Maybe, i’ll get it for you. it’ll sort of be like dixie is at college with you,” my mom said with a smile as she dropped the rug into our bright yellow bag.
It’s no comparison to my little dix, but there were a few times i sat on that rug and ran my hand across it wishing my little puppy wasn’t so far away.
It has been almost five years since my mom bought me that rug, dixie still lives with my mom about an hour north of here and i will still occasionally run my fingers across through it. Miss you dixie!
