Bodie, the larger Catican Guard and Leah, the larger of the Chihuahua mixes, pranced around in joy when we arrived, but Lily, aka Grandma*, crouched in utter amazement. She had clearly written us off. It was like we had come back from the dead. She was so happy, but she didn't want to show it as if she was afraid she might break the spell and we would disappear again. In fact, if we had disappeared right before her eyes, I doubt she would have been any more surprised.
After about 20 minutes of disoriented, delirious happiness, she was her normal self again. It was beautiful.
