The Daily Prompt for today is an acceptance speech and whoever wrote the post titled it “I’d Like to Thank My Cat” so I’m borrowing that and tell you why I’m thanking my dog. Because I am thanking my dog. Who wouldn’t?
My dog loves me unconditionally, or so I like to think. Or maybe her love is dependent on the food I give her and the walks I take her on. I hope that’s not true. But even feeding her and walking her, as frustrating as she can be on a walk, is time I wouldn’t want to spend any other way. The licks she gives me in greeting when I come home, the sweet puppy dog eyes she uses to ask for things, the way she nudges against me when I’m upset… these are the reasons I’m a better person for having a dog.
So, Lucy, my sweet beagle friend… I thank you.
