Diamonds, a girl’s best friend? What nonsense! They obviously never owned a dog.
Do you have pets? The unconditional love of a dog is just so awesome. I have a Scottish Terrier called Fermo. It’s Italian for ‘stop’ and he does stop, but only when he’s napping on my couch in the office or at my feet while I am watching TV. He brings a smile to my face whenever I see he ‘spring’ across the back yard or on a walk when he may see a rabbit or a squirrel. He is a coiled spring bouncing into life and makes me laugh out loud when he does it. Fermo brings much pleasure to my life, and now I can’t imagine a life without him.
If you don’t have a dog, consider if your life would accommodate one. He can be a rescue, or a pure bred, a mongrel or a crème de la crème. They are all incredibly lovable. If you can’t have a dog in your life, buy a fluff toy dog. It will comfort you as you watch TV, nearly as much as Fermo comforts me.
The joy of a dog is priceless. I am sure cat owners would say the same about their cat.
