My sweet understanding dog, always listens, never bites. It's not that I wish my husband followed me around the house, hoping that I would drop a bread crust on the floor. But every once in a while, boy would it be nice to just lean on him, tell him how much my day sucked, and have him just give me a hug and nod.
But, you know, everyone is the center of their own universe, which I think is in part why we have dogs, so we can be the center of something else's too.
Although, I do compete heavily with food.
