At first, Dad is grumpy and irritated. It’s his birthday, and his stomach pains are acting up. From the moment he peels back the envelope and opens the card with a photo of a new puppy named Lumo, his mood completely changes.
He melts as he undergoes the broad range of human emotion, crying immediately and without shame. Dad is beside himself, and can’t even look at the card as Jaleen steps in to read the kind words from “Lumo”:
“Hi, my name is Lumo I am a boy bichon. No, I am not Nemo nor could I ever be Lucy. My mommy brought me to bring you some happiness back into your life. So as we walk down this journey of life together, may we create our wonderful memories and rekindle the beautiful memories you had with Nemo and Lucy.”
Dad’s reaction then becomes one of childlike joy when Lumo is placed into his arms. The two bond in a tender personal moment as Dad relives memories of his loved ones lost, but with a new fluffy bundle of joy to look forward to.
