The owning of my first dog

Edith Wharton and her chihuahuas. Source:

“The owning of my first dog made me into a conscious, sentient person, fiercely possessive, anxiously watchful, and woke in me that long ache of pity for animals, and for all inarticulate beings, which nothing has ever stilled.”

Edith Wharton

Hoping that I’ll perhaps have the same experience that Wharton had… Happy Friday, everyone!
