Puppy Dog Tails

There’s nothing fishy here.  This Mermaid is thankful that my heart beats in rhythm to a trio of puppy dog tails.  Danny, Sophie and Boomer are my ambassadors for love, life and caring.  They each came into my life at different times for different reasons and, just like pieces of a puzzle, they fit and click and see me and accommodate me.
