My family doesn't vacuum, here's why...
My dog Richie has been serving as our portable, organic vacuum cleaner for about 12 years now. Every time my family sits down for a meal, he's there front and center waiting for food to hit he ground. Needless to say our kitchen floor is very clean!
He has also taken place of many house hold items and appliances... For instance, I don't need an alarm anymore!
He's getting pretty old and can't jump on my bed in the mornings, so he just sits there and barks... he doesn't have a snooze button.
Once I get out of bed, I lift him up, and he quickly settles right dab in the middle of my pillow and fits snugly where my head had been...
He's the softest living pillow I've ever come across, and I always listen to his little heart beat, and the weird noises his tummy makes.
He's also the best traveling companion...
He has no preference on music, and makes no comments on my driving.
I have come to share some of the most peaceful experiences with this little guy. I remember one day we went outside to sit on the front porch (Richie likes the front yard better because there's a lot more happening out there) A gust of wind blew through the air and he closed his eyes, stuck his nose in the air and took a deep breath... so did I. I felt so alive while doing nothing at all, so much so that its one of the richest memories I've had. And the fact that this little dog can put me so at peace and make me feel so happy with just existing astounds me!
Dogs are awesome!!!!!!
