Forever etched in our hearts. You will never wander far away…your lessons echo in our embrace, your empathy makes us kinder, your zest for walking will keep us fit and your never ending tour de force to get even one scrap of our food will always make us want to share..
Under stress, endless projects and tasks to deliver and there you are….waiting patiently or not so patiently nudging us to stop working so hard. Take a break, rub your belly. Throw the toy, it’s never without a reward. You always make us smile.
Rowdy barking makes us aware…the neighbor has arrived..or is it the mailman? A stranger or just some kid ringing the bell. You are there to save us from it all….even if it’s to hassle them so they will pat you and play with you.
