Captain Rick: It is said that a dog is man’s best friend … but is man a dog’s best friend?
The dog in the photo below reminds me of ‘Pete’, a neighbor’s dog. Even though we had a block wall between us, we were both good friends. Every time I was up on the ladder pruning my trees and plants, Pete would come over and sit below and watch and listen. We had many conversations over the years. I can only trust that he knew what I was saying by the contentment on his face. He never said anything … but if he had … I think he would have said “Remind me why there is a treat limit again? Cuz I don’t agree”.
Sadly, Pete passed away a while back. The moral of this story is … if you are fortunate enough to have a ‘mans best friend’, return the kindness and be your dog’s best friend. The best treat that your dog can receive is your love and friendship … with no limit.
