a boy and his dog

This was just too sweet not to share.


Last night, as wild man was winding down for bed, he grabbed ‘blankie’ and laid down next to fatty dog.

He grinned at her and petted her head, and it was just so cute I had to sneak a picture.


Considering his new favorite thing is to shriek and then charge at the pets (and continue to chase them until they find a place to hide), this peaceful, loving gesture was just so wonderful to see.


We love our cats dearly, and we’ve always said once fatty dog passes, we probably won’t get a new dog any time soon…but moments like this make me question that and wonder. Maybe we will always need a dog in our lives afterall…
