I just cried my eyes out. Literally. I was hanging out playing video games and I had to leave the room. THIS is why I love animals so much, and have a tattoo on my foot that says "Always faithful, Always loved" I also cried. Beautiful, I will greet beasts in Heaven this way!
THIS is why I love dogs. A golden retriever that didn't even belong to me -- because I've never had a golden retriever -- was once on a walk with its family around the lakes in Minneapolis. I was just sitting there. It took a step over and licked my ear. I don't know why. It just wanted to. That's why I love dogs.
