“You know I like dogs more than people,
‘Cause they don’t talk as much and when you meet up with them,
They wag their tails around the world – you’ll find one who needs you.
Let me tell ya, dogs are kind of like people,
‘Cause they need love just like we do and when you’re with them,
They wag their tails around the world – you’ll find one who needs you.”
These be the partial lyrics to a song I wrote many a year ago.
For me, they still hold true.
Tonight, I lay down on the carpet and our Labrador came and slumped her body onto mine.
I patted her tummy & underside for about 15 minutes as she lay upside down, eyes closed, mouth falling open.
