71. Bless you for such a wonderful story.

I hope everything improves in your life, because you certainly deserve it.

And I certainly agree with you on the therapeutic value of pets. It's a cold cruel world we have to face sometimes, and the comfort and strength our furkids share makes everything more bearable.

For many years I had a Dobie-Rott mix that I found loose on a highway near a military base, and from certain signs I learned later that he'd been somebody's jungle patrol project. He was big enough to rip almost anybody or anything in as many pieces as he wanted. But when I also brought home a tiny kitten orphaned at 5 weeks, he hounded the dog unmercifully and the dog seemed to love him all the more for it. Kitty would walk up to dog asleep on the floor and butt his head against his jaws, then when they opened he'd stick his whole head in. Eventually taught the dog to carry him around as a mother cat would.

If not for a continuing stream of furkids, I never could have survived life's blows. When I get sick of mankind in general, I stop and remember all the true pet lovers and feel better just from that. So keep those stories comin'!
