Day with the Dog

Leave a comment

I’m watching my Son’s dog today. Well not just any dog. Our grand dog. Our first grand dog. She is so sweet and loving. It is a joy every time she comes to our home. I love animals and have been a cat person most of my life. Dogs are much more interactive and they really need that constant love and attention. Cats are laid back and want some of their own time. With dogs, your time is their time.

I’d have a horrible guilt complex if I had a dog. I’d have a hell of a time doing much else besides being the dogs best friend. That is one of the special things about pets. A lot of them become one of your best friends. They are a good example of what friends should be. Loyal is one important quality. Being there for you is another. Good friends will warn you about suspicious characters, just like your dog will.

Rolling along.

A friend won’t let you sit around all day doing nothing. A friend is appreciative and dogs are very appreciative. There are many find qualities in friends. The one fine quality though that I have a problem with is she is quick to beat me to my spot in the bed. So be it. With all that love she shared with me today, she can have my spot.

Random Thoughts of the Day

Feeling good about the start to the weekend.

Sunshine on my Shoulders, makes me happy, so the song goes. Sunshine on my shoulders makes me warm.

I’m learning how to go to bed before I pass out.

Learning to listen. It helps reduce the stupid crap I might have said.
