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.
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
