I just read this and teared up.
Only five minutes before that, Howard and I stood in the bedroom hugging each other and laughed because our 3 year old dog, Pepper, and our 15 year old dog, Lucky, were frantically trying to get between us for some love too. Howard and I wrapped our arms around them both and we had a group hug. Then we scooped up the kitty who was meowing and gave her a good squeeze as well.
I don’t understand why people get animals and then refuse to take care of them.
It just breaks my heart. If you don’t like animals, don’t own one. It’s just that simple, people.
