Man's Best Friend

It was one of those days
Feeling stressed
A sense of loneliness taking over me
But he is always there
His tail wagging as I walk in the door
Clinging to me
The simple act of curling up on my lap making his day
And mine too
His sense of empathy so acute
Surpassing any person in that moment
That is why he remains man's best friend

So right lea. There is a saying in Washington DC, "If you want a friend, buy a dog."

Lea, that's very sweet. Dogs do know how to cheer you up when you're feeling low. Licking your toes is always good for a start.

It's impossible to explain those feelings to a dog-less person! We can't stay down or angry when our two butt-wigglers begin their antics. Wish we could have them on the Mountain!

Erica said...

Awwwww... how could anyone not cheer up with that face!

awwwe very sweet. Im more of a cat person - and the minute she jumps on my lap purring and being affectionate my day just brightens :)

Aww, what a cutie! I lost my Boris a month ago, and believe me when I say that I miss him every day. They are such good friends!

My dog makes my day just by being there and glad to see me when I come home. There such wonderful companions!

And such characters too!

@joey, Very true.

@Hermione, Licking toes? Lol, not sure about that one.

@Marne, I know, right? My dog is the first pet I've owned as an adult and I didn't really "get it" before then either. He wouldn't do good on the mountain though, runs off when he hears loud noises, lol.

@Erica, I actually borrowed that one from Google images, don't have a good pic of my dog. He's cute too though. :-)

@kiwi, All types of pets definitely make good companions.

@kitten, I'm so sorry to hear that. I hope you are left with many good memories.

@Dioneo, I saw some pics that said "You probably just like me because I feed and house you" but even so, they sure make you feel loved. :-)
