A Boy and His Dog

Ever since Yogi passed away (to a better place) last December, John has been much more attentive and affectionate with the dogs. I think losing Yogi helped him to not take them for granted. He's been especially loving to Boo Boo, bereaved in the loss of his beloved brother, and it's really sweet. This is one of the benefits of having pets--the sensitivity and compassion that it can help cultivate in our kids and in ourselves.

Aww. Such a sweet post and sweet pictures. I really wish we could get a pet for our girls but it just wouldn't work in our teeny place right now. I do like dogs but I am more of a cat person. I wish we had a couple kittens running around!
