Dog Days

"I think we are drawn to dogs because they are the uninhibited creatures we might be if we weren’t certain we knew better. They fight for honor at the first challenge, make love with no moral restraint, and they do not for all their marvelous instincts appear to know about death. Being such wonderfully uncomplicated beings, they need us to do their worrying."
 ~George Bird Evans

If you have kept up with this blog then you have heard me mention Stoli aka Wild Man. The only thing that is bigger than his head (or balls) is his heart. He will literally cry when you walk into the house after work. Imagine if someone or something made you that happy. How weird would it be if I cried everytime I saw Margaret, or friends or family? He loves people that much. There is something about this dog, or anydog that can just make you forget about stress at work, money, or dealing with cancer. I don't know what it is but, I wish we all had it.

Jennifer Arnold(margaret and I's aunt) might have the answer to this. Her second book came out today and is a must buy for any dog lover. She is the founder of Caninne Assistants, a non-profit which trains dogs to assist people with varying disabilities. She does amazing things for humans and human's best friend. This would be the ideal gift for the holidays and a great heart warming read. It's called "In a Dogs Heart." Please check out the link.

90% of the pictures on my phone are of my dog, enjoy:
