Animals make really cool friends. My dog has never told me she’s sick & tired of lying on the couch with me. Never said my hair was whacked or I was too sweaty when I felt bad. She quietly, patiently hangs around. Snuggling & snuffling at JUST the right time to make me laugh.
When things get really bad & we’ve been couch-bound for a couple weeks, she’ll get her toy & put it on the sofa with us, as if to remember the good old days. But she’s never pushy or rude.
Having her during my down times has made my life much better & I’ve had a barrel of fun with her during my good times. She gets toys & treats. She does NOT get clothes or bling–because she doesn’t like them. Sometimes I’m tempted though…
I want to give credit where credit is due. My little Tiny has done more good for my health & sanity than medicine ever could. Once, I rescued her from life as a hungry stray–now she saves me every day. Wow, what an awesome investment!!
