So lemme pay my respects to my late #dogs, Bart and Milo.
I may not be a pet person but I understand what they mean to our family.
And I must admit, Bart and Milo have warmed on me and it sucks that they have to leave us. I hate the smell of dog urine, dog feces, and the creepy crawlies inside their bodies but I like touching their noses whenever they do something cool like trapping rats or barking when I need someone to open the door or not barking whenever I came home drunk during the wee hours.
I also step on their tummies whenever they want them scratched.
I also massage their ears to appreciate their efforts.
I may have a different approach to showing my emotion but as per Niccolo Machiavelli, the end justifies the means.
