I agree. I get irritated and want to pinch their heads off at times but would sure miss them. Even when Jr. came wanting under the covers last night and had to wake me up to get there. But we cuddled up and went back to sleep. 4-legged children are special. People without them just do not know what they are missing.
LOL! Gracie does the same thing --- wakes me up to let her under the covers.
Oh you made me cry:(
Oh no! I don't want to make you cry! But I do, cry over pets that have passed away. I would take all the muddy paw prints and globs of snow I had to pull out of Max's fur when he dove into snow drifts gladly to have one more day with the best dog I ever had. His name was Max and he was a pure white schnauzer.
