Since we haven’t had any pets of the furry variety (quills don’t count, friends) in well over a year, it’s easy for me to forget that once upon a time I used to be a huge dog lover. Cats are cool too, but dogs were my obsession. Five years ago I never thought I’d see the day we’d exist without companion animals in our lives. But there hasn’t been a dog in this house in 15 months. Wow.
It was fun to spend a few days last week at my brother- and sister-in-law’s house with their pets, and remember that I do love furry animals.
