I may have cried when I read this. A lot of people have said "they are just dogs" to me before. No, they are not. They are part of my family and to me Abby and Tex have never and will never be "just a dog" to me or Josh. There is no price tag on the love and companionship of a dog. And if you think there is, just remember, you are your dog's everything.
I think this is the direction I'm going in for the table I got. Only starting with an aqua color, giving it a distressed look with black paint, then adding highlights with a light green, white, and metallic glaze.
