What you can learn from your dog

Dawn should like this:

Being a grown-up human is like being a dog, in more ways than one. You seem to spend your days gnawing endlessly on the same old bone or pile of bones -- in people terms, worrying at the same old problems which defy speedy or tidy resolution. Once in a great while, you break through to the tasty marrow and finally finish off the bone. In people terms, you achieve a measure of success.

You're right! Dawn does like it and can oh so relate!

The most wonderful quality of dogs that humans don't posess is the incapacity for self-pity. They're genuinely happy and playful irrespective of how many legs (eyes, ears) they have left and use all remaining body parts to make the humans they love happy.
If that isn't the best definition of having a best friend, I don't know what is (except for a name which sounds as sweet).

Quite an interesting analogy. Works beautifully :)
