There is something about sitting on the front porch with your dog. Watching the world go by. Thinking about whether or not to throw the ball or take a walk or, really, just be. And perhaps that's the miracle of a dog. They know how to just be absolutely in the moment. And love you no matter what. There's no agenda, no issues, no crisis. It all just melts away into that special sound of her snorffling breath while sitting on the front porch. And sometimes, if you are very lucky, she'll just lean into you and stay that way for a long, long time.
