After hurriedly drinking a cup of coffee as she sped across town, June finally was at her client's home. As an interior designer she would go to the customer's home to evaluated their needs and give not only her opinion but an estimate of what the cost would be to redecorate and her fee.
June noted that the client's home was very large and spacious. A little outdated but she knew she could be of service here. Unfortunately, the fog she was in did not want to lift. Her head felt so heavy from the pain of the migraine it was hard to concentrate. Marge and Bill the homeowners, wanted to do a complete renovation. The client's dog, a little something-or-other, sat staring at her.
"What kind of dog is that?" June asked.
"We really don't know, we just recently rescued her from the pound."
"Oh, how nice." June said. She was about to stand when the little dog growled.
"Is she growling at me?" June asked.
"I'm sure not, she has the sweetest disposition, we call her Pansy. She has never growled at anyone before." Marge said.
"Grrrrr!" Pansy growled when June attempted to rise again.
"Pansy, No. No growling" Marge reprimanded.
On June's next attempt at standing. Pansy jumped up and knocked her down. Frightened that the dog had attached her. She was on the verge of screaming when she blacked out. When she awakened there were paramedics standing over her and Pansy was licking her face. Pansy it turns out was trying to warn her that she was going to have a seizure.
June did get the contract to do the home for Marge and Bill. They were so completely satisfied with her work that they gave June a bonus and something else too. A little dog name Pansy who June renamed Angel. And anytime she growls, June knows that "Grrrr" means sit down and pay attention.
