My 2 sweet hounds make each day a delight. Each morning Pepper stretches when I rise to my alarm, then she lays on my pillow while I shower. Murray opens one eye, and goes back to sleep.
They walk me to the door as I leave, and greet me at the door when I return. They wag, nuzzle and want some petting. Then they follow as I go around the house doing what needs to be done. They love their walks, love playing in the creek and lay at my feet while I sew or blog. Then they tuck me in at night.
When things get rough, I just go to the dogs.
