And man, now I know why people want pets. I come home from work, tired and hungry, and there's Misty, sitting on the back of the sofa. She barks happily and wags her tail so hard that I'm sure she's going to wag herself off of the couch! Meryl is sneakier. She gets you when you're in the bathroom and trapped. She winds herself around my legs, almost begging me to pet her.
It doesn't matter what is going on, or how bad I feel, when Misty is curled up on my lap life is pretty good.
