For this Friday, more photographs of the Golden Girls slumbering after a long run.
Ooh! Looks as if Lucy has only one eye.
Never mind. It's Ellie's paw where Lucy is resting her head.
Lucy! Why do you have to lie all over Ellie?
Because I am the princess.
Besides, she could move if she wanted to.
At least this time only Lucy's head is on Ellie.
I know that there are people who do not care for dogs, especially not dogs who live inside the house, and most especially not dogs inside the house who shed long golden hair. But I cannot imagine our lives without dogs. Even when we are really old, we will have at least one dog. The dog might have to be smaller to accomodate our decreased mobility, but we will adapt to a little dog just as we hope to adapt to advancing age.
Our Golden Girls add so much humor, love, and joy to our lives.
As Samuel Butler said,
"All animals except man, know that the principal business of life is to enjoy it."
And of dogs, Mark Twain wrote,
"I love a dog. He does nothing for political reasons."
HAVE A WONDERFUL JOYFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE!
