“Until one has loved an animal, part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”
— Anatole France

As much as I may try to avoid oversentimentality toward animals, I do really believe this is true. Loving animals feels like unlocking a different chamber of the heart. Especially when the animal in question is a dog.
Thanks for all of your advice about nail trimming. We are still working on it. I fear I may have to resort to calling in a professional. I think she would actually have to be physically restrained to get her nails trimmed at this point. (Or do I just need to run her on asphalt more often?? But those dew claw nails are really getting bad.) Anyway. I’ll keep you posted. Sigh. Why is it that some dogs never seem to need this done? That we could be that lucky…
Wishing you warm and happy weekends!
