Okay. This is a departure from my normal posts. But as I was sitting in my LoveSac working on some code, my son came over to wrestle with Barkley, our King Charles Spaniel.
Now, this picture is a few months old. But I can pretty much take the same shot every day of the two of them. The first thing my son does when he wakes in the morning is to give his pup a warm hug and kiss.
I guess I should also mention that the two of them consider one another to be brothers too. Since we don’t have any other children, I have no issue considering our dogs as our kids.
All of this came into question, however, the other day when my son asked who I loved more– Mommy, Barkley, Sydney (our Queensland) or him. I went down the path of ordering my love, beginning with his mother, then him, then our two dogs (equally). He was perplexed and responded that he loved us all equally.
But after I explained the marriage relationship, he asked if one day he too would be one with his wife. But for now, he is content loving us all the same. Mind you, none of this wrecks his ability to have hours of fun with his best friend, Barkley.
What does this have to do with anything? Not much, other than I was having fun watching them play; and I thought I’d share it. And it’s my blog.
