A Tender Moment

I love my dog dearly. She is truly my baby and lacks for no attention in our family.

Lately she's been very loving and cuddly. Sometimes she can get a little standoffish but overall she's a very affectionate dog. Ever since we got back from Arizona she's been all over us soliciting pats and scratches.

One thing she loves to do is to go outside and lay on the driveway, soaking up the sun. When she scratched at the door to go outside today, I decided to go with her. She nudged me, then flopped down in my lap so I could pet her. I scratched and rubbed her tummy, scratched behind her ears--all her favorite places. We both basked in the warmth of the sun, and it was truly a celebration of our human/animal bond.

Then she got up and walked behind the garage, where she found a fresh patch of cat pee, and promptly rolled in it.

My dog is gross.
