Dogs! I became a dog owner nearly eleven years ago. As it happened, I was in the wrong place at the wrong time when a fur-baby needed a home. I tend to think with my heart and not my head in these situations and, well, I became a dog mama to a lab/husky mix whom I named Jake. People kept telling me he’d calm down after a couple years and, while he has calmed down substantially, he is still a restless pup with a bad case of A.D.D. What IS it with dogs? They are the opposite of cats! They are constantly waiting and anticipating … wanting to know what my next move will be and they are always within just a couple of feet from me. And I have not one but two that do that. Beau is just as bad. Oh, the stories I could tell you about Beau (and I will). He is quite a character and magician.
