Woman's best friend

in


Sitting here with my coffee in one hand and the mouse in the other,I feel warmth next to my foot and look down and see the big black body of my dog sitting as close as can be.Sometimes he gets right under the desk. If i go downstairs to get more coffee, he will follow me, lie down and when i go back up to my desk, he will patiently get up and follow me back up. This goes on all day. If I let him out, he's back in, in minutes; he doesn't let me out of his sight. Now this is unconditional love. He doesn't care that I haven't showered and that i'm still in my robe, hair not combed. He doesn't even care if I rant and rave and scream and yell, as long as he gets a walk and fed - hey life is good.

I love Jackson! Just looking at that pic makes me want to come over there and throw the ball with him.

Talk tomorrow.

so touching ... I'm glad he's there for you.

He looks just like mine - nothing bets the company of a black lab

I have a best friend who's just as trustworthy and accepting as Jackson, but he,s human and he makes me breakfast in bed sometimes. And he plays catch.

Gotta love animals. Got a house full of them (dog, 2 cats, rabbit...) They're wonderful. I can't imagine my life without them.

Now if only our pets could pay half the mortgage and give backrubs... we could entirely eliminate romantic relationships from our lives and spend entire months in bathrobes watching infomercials and basking in the loving, unjudgemental gaze of a good pet.

Aaaah.

My pal isn't quite so fond of my ranting and raving, but maybe that's because we're not getting out for enough walks. Hmmmm.

Wenda said...

And I love that full spread on the floor, too. Very cute!

Well, if i were there i would care that your in you robe, your hair is tusseled, i'd hug you...i'd follow you for that coffee too (if you share) but i don't aim to replace adorable Jackson...he keeps your feet warm.

Positive energy to you

Edie said...
