Unconditional Love

Everybody needs LOVE.

Humans often talk about unconditional love, and how we dogs and cats are good at that. I consider myself a top-tier provider of love for my mama, but well, I do have conditions.

I like my food homemade, my grooming occasional (but enough so that I maintain my rugged outdoorsman look that's so popular with the ladies), minimal hugging, at least 3 walks per day, and LOTS of kisses.

Luckily all of these things seem to fit in with mama's conditions as well. We are a pretty darned good team.

I don't judge her when she throws on her old sweatpants to walk me at 6AM in the rain, nor do I bust out the yardstick when my dinner is late because she forgot to turn on the stove. I mean, right now I am cuddling on the bed on her pillow and the bed isn't even made... and yet I say nothing. In return I always try to keep her spirits up, make her laugh, and smother her with kisses. A fair trade, I'd say.

Oh, there are pine cones too? OF COURSE THERE ARE...
