this is why all kids should have a dog! learn unconditional love, responsibility, and unfortunately the enviable heart ache of loss! life lessons aren't always easy but the reward of having unconditional love is a far better gain I think!
No kind action ever stops with itself. One kind action leads to another. Good example is followed. A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves. ~ Amelia Earhart
