Give me a dog any day over people.
I feel the same some days about my cat. He’s my best companion. At least I don’t have to worry about him starting a riot. LOL
This is one of many reasons why I won’t shop in any store (other than the supermarket) if I don’t have to at this time of year. I do my holiday shopping online or by phone....more recently, I’ve resorted to gift cards. Heck of a lot easier...you don’t have to fight crowds and you avoid riots.
And if you trip and fall, he'll be right there, to see if you are injured enough that he can start on the tender parts...
