At least it is for me!!
Yup...my jar would be full too!
My cup runneth over...
Absolutely spot on. But I figure it's only fair given all my friends' kid stories over the years!!
I actually found it a good way to connect with my patients at the hospital, though. If they were dog lovers, a dog story was a good distraction and usually good for a smile or a laugh.
One of my coworkers today asked about my weekend and I mentioned the beach and dog..he had an older dog a few years back so the conversation progressed mutually so I don't feel bad.. But he did get to see videos of Gavin at the beach in his cart! (he took his dog there, too)
I tell people about Sandstorm, and that my favorite thing to do with him is having conversations. They know what we're saying- that's what his breeder told us about shelties the first time we visited, and she's right. And no, I don't care what people think when I tell them this.
I know... I really miss my conversations with Gavin. I mean, I still talk to him but he can't hear me now so its not the same.
People are always surprised when we're talking about grandkids and I queue up my phone to find a picture. There are dozens on there of the dogs and maybe four of the grandkids, and I have to hunt for them. I always get distracted in the search by one or another of the dog pics..."Oh, look at this one!"
And that always leads to dog stories...... Good thing most of my friends are dog people!
