You know when there doesn't seem to be anyone in the world who could possibly make you feel better? Well, that's where a dog comes in. Any dog will do really, but in my case it was a 7 lb mini dachshund who climbed up into bed with me and allowed me to hug her tightly to my chest for an hour and a half while I pulled myself back together again. There are no words to describe how blessed I felt to have her there, quiet and warm and reassuring.
It's amazing how much our critters can make such a huge positive difference for us. Dogs, horses, cats... they all have an uncanny way of being there when you really, really need them.
Thank you Lexie!
