Oh, if only I had the dignity and grace that my cat has. I don't. If only I had the soul and the character of my dog. Nope. I muddle through and do the best I can with what I have to work with.
I've noticed that they seem to be happy if I'm happy. I suppose I owe it to them to laugh and play. Seems like a good idea for all of us. They run on love. I do, too.
