It's raining cats & dogs
Pets are stress busters. They recognize how you feel. They jump all over you when you are happy. They leave you alone when are not. They do cutest things to change your moods. Love them and they love you 10 times more. If your best friend (dog) is not listening go to http://www.ad2action.com/8/8uctjrsh619m/14364/ help yourself to get training help so that YOU can be happy with Your Pet.
cutest thing I've EVER seen in my life!!
It's not hard to feel that every dog I ever had extended me the privilege to have been loved. That is what they show us. Tricks are things they let us teach them because they know what makes us feel good about ourselves. But you cannot teach a dog to sleep curled up around your feet, or tell you with that fading look that its time has come. I believe if they could talk they would tell you in a whisper, as losses go, it's them who'll miss you more just so as not to break your heart.
