Daisy and Me

I just got back from seeing a great movie, Marley and Me. I really didn't know what to expect since I haven't seen many commercials even (finding time to watch TV is rare...) but it sure was a fun, feel-good, tear-jerker of a movie!! It did make me realize how important our pets are in our lives...how they are just one of the family and how much we would miss by not having them there. My little Daisy pup is part of us...she is practically LIKE us. She loves to sleep in the bed, with her head on the pillow. Her favorite place in the house to hang out is in my office...I like to think it is because it is also MY favorite place in the house! :-) She is just so much a part of who we are. She is usually one of the first waiting to greet me when I come in and when else can you be greeted so sincerely!! There's nothing waiting in the background like did I complete something for her or did I remember to take out the trash or anything! Just pure, unadulterated joy to see us. Who could ask for more?!?!?

I know many times we take our animals for granted...but life would be so dull without them. I really think it is oftentimes through our pets that we learn what it means to love another unconditionally. No strings attached...

Here is a picture that I took on my cell phone that I just can't help sharing because it is just so quintesentially Daisy...she is on the couch in my office and the picture says it all...

It's rather pathetic isn't it...you would think she OWNS that couch! But then again...perhaps she does....LOL
