Going to the dogs

September 24, 2014 - 2:00pm
Some days are just tough-we all have them. I've had days where I worked 12 hours straight and others where I messed something up at work. I've had days where everything seemed to go wrong from spilling coffee on myself to falling out the front door of my building. I've had scary days when I've had surgery and horribly sad days when I've lost someone I love. Yet the second I open the door to my house, sweet soulful brown eyes and a wagging tail make even the hardest days better. Molly, Molly the border collie (mix) loves me unconditionally. She's always excited to see me. She's thrilled to go on a walk and she's just as delighted to go back in the house. She loves rides and new destinations but is just as happy to come home. She's content to sit next to me and be petted but always willing to get up and play with her Hairy Haggis toys. She makes me proud when she shows how smart she is and makes me laugh when she acts silly. She lets me put her in a Spartan cape or a pumpkin costume and gently greets trick-or-treaters on the porch. She doesn't chew things, run out of the yard, and she won't take anything, not even steak, unless she's specifically told it's ok. She's loyal and incredibly sweet. Basically, she's the perfect dog. No, really. She is.
