“When you have a good friend that really cares for you and tries to stick in there with you, you treat them like nothing. Learn to be a good friend because one day you’re gonna look up and say I lost a good friend. ― Marilyn Monroe
The man enjoyed his evening constitutional with his best friend and the dog always showed him who the boss actually was in the end.
Many times the dog would park its butt on the sidewalk and visibly protest the walk. But eventually, through gentle cajoling and coaxing, the little dog would raise itself up and happily follow its master.
It appeared to be an older dog and many times the man would carry it back home.
The man has not replaced his deceased companion and I doubt he ever will…they shared a unique bonding and a close relationship.
Many times in this life a truly loyal and caring friend is not always two footed. — gc
