I cut the following picture and column out of a paper over 25 years ago. It has stayed on my refrigerator all this time. Although yellowed from age, it remains a reminder that these kids do not ask for anything more than hugs, kisses and attention. Unfortunately, I see exactly what the dog is referring to on a daily basis.
So, the next time your fur babies bug you for a walk or play time after you spent a long hard day at work, think twice before pushing them off.
