I’ve written quite a few posts about my dog, and I think it is obvious that I not only love her but also feel connected to her in a way I did not know you could feel about dogs. I realized that while I’ve written about playing games with her, camping, walking, even resting when sick, I’ve never written about just petting her.
Every morning, I take a moment to pet her, scratch her ears and rub under her chin. It is a calming moment before leaving home to tackle the stresses of the workday. I tell her to “be good” while I’m gone and sometimes I tell her how pretty she is. What can I say? I am in love.
