In defiance of local ordinance we have six dogs. Most are rescues and each has their own distinct and endearing "personality" I've buried a few beloved pets over the years and I remember each vividly and fondly. Dogs have been our companions and friends for millenia now and I suspect that people who are incapable of such emotional attachment have a piece missing.


It's wonderful that your wife had such a devoted companion! I guess I'm neurotic, childlike and soft. I'd rather be that than cynical, calculating and lacking compassion. When I was bedridden in an arm cast, my animals never left the side of the bed until I got up and started moving around a few days later (other than the requisite poop walks). Animals teach us many things and offer us their unconditional love. I think people who don't like animals are untrustworthy. I can't imagine my life without them.


That schmuck indeed must hang out with sociopaths; every person I consider worth knowing believes as I do that animal companions are to be cherished as dear companions.
