    Always There For Me

    My dogs are always there for me, I can count on them no matter what. They listen when I need to talk, provide a furry shoulder to cry on when I need it. They are curled up with me on the couch right now watching tv and snuggling. Life is good :)

    My best friend as a child was my cat,

    Tippy. She was a tuxedo cat, and very vociferous. We'd play and it seemed she would listen to me as I'd read to her.

    A Sheep Dog At Work.

    This story was told to me by a friend who being a skeptic is still trying to this day to find a logical explanation. She told me the story because she knows I have an open mind and because I too have told her of occurences which defy explanation. She visited a cousin she had not...
