My heart is warm and full as I give our little Barney his morning bellyrub, which is how he greets us first thing every morning. No rushing to the toilet, the love has to come first! As I pet his soft wooly coat, I am so grateful that I get to spend another Christmas with him. A part of me is aware that he is a senior dog and that our time together is limited, but this makes each moment we have with him even more precious. So we savour the love and delight we share with him, between human and dog, between souls. Merry Christmas to all, may the love you share with others renew your spirit and remind you why you are here.
