Accidental Friendship

I just finished watching the movie Accidental Friendship on the Hallmark channel. Starring Chandra Wilson, Ben Vereen and Kathleen Munroe it is based on a true story.
The obstacles that Yvone (Chandra Wilson) overcame to find life once again is riveting. The story also includes her dogs. They are her family throughout her homeless life which made me realize how important my pets are to me. Let's face it, if you own pets they ARE your family.
And why not?
They're faithful (I say this as Mr. Bettis is laying at my feet.........on the couch).
They don't talk back.
They don't have high expectations
They are always pleased to see you and they hate to see you leave (even if it's only to go to the mailbox)
They love you unconditionally

So, if you own a pet, give them a hug. I'm sure they'll appreciate the attention.

Umm, you obviously haven't met Beauregard James - bloodhound extrodinaire and sassy boy. he does talk back - often and pushes his way out the front door so he can go to the mailbox with you :)

Glad Mr. Bettis is on the couch. g

You and Claudia! She made me mist up over a story from her mother's early years, and now you...

My hound dog talks back as well. I hear him grumble. My big baby is my sweetie, even though the puppy is supposed to be my sweetie. The puppy doesn't mind anyone at all. His day is coming, soon!
