Jeffery is like a drill sargeant in the mornings -- if he is ready for the day to start, then everyone better be up. He also wants his walks at precise times and he "bugs" us until we get up and get going. He keeps track of us every minute of the day and gets upset if we have been outside without him. We get a thorough sniffing if we have been away from the house.
Dogs share our lives more completely than does any other animal. Since their domestication, dogs have accompanied and served us in many ways. Two apex predators managed to find mutual benefit in a close relationship that is considered "commensal" -- dogs developed an intense, familial bond with humans.
I'm borrowing this question from kitty.... What has your mutt(s) done today to make you smile?
Well, to start, Sassy went outside and did her business, big and little business!!! Big smile! But, I held her for a fewe minutes and she nuzzled my neck and layed her pretty head on my shoulder. So sweet! I'll be smiling all day after that!

We're all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness — and call it love — true love. ~Robert Fulghum, True Love
There is always a perfectly good excuse, always a reason not to. The hardest freedom to win is the freedom from one's excuses. ~Robert Brault
