“Hi there. Who are you?” said 7-year-old Molly, a beagle mix known all around town for her waggy tail. “Welcome to me and my human’s house!”
Molly inched toward the new mirror with curious excitement.
“You look like me, kinda sorta, but I’m here, not over there. We should be buddies, whoever you are. We can all use more friends.” Molly approached her mirrored self to give her new buddy a little lick.
“You don’t taste like any dog I’ve ever kissed, and you don’t smell like anything! But that’s okay—you don’t have to smell or taste like me to be my friend.”
Molly spent the day relaxing with her new housemate, napping nose to nose and showing off her favorite toys. Somehow, her friend had all the same balls and bones as she did!
“We have so much in common. Today has been so nice.”
