What I want is to go to sleep at the end of each day, knowing that I made the world just a little bit better for being me. Sometimes that takes a bit of watering, some fertilizer, a soft nuzzle, a goofy grin, the “walk dance” or a bit of pouting on rainy days. And sometimes that takes a good, strong bark at someone you love so they get off their ass and do for themselves.
Please remember that I am a dog and I can only be the dog I am. I can’t change my coat, I can’t walk upright on two legs and I can’t talk, no matter how much you wanting me to do these things proves I care.
