My dogs “payment” of 2 3 cups of kibble a day, and a vet visit now and again is more than earned by his every vigilant guarding of my home, and the fact that while a loving caring pet, will defend with his life my wife and children.
Way I figure it, like every dog I’ve owned, when his time on this earth is done, he’s more than earned his rest, and I’ve gotten the better end of the bargain.
No doubt about it. You are correct.
I was kidding about all this freeloading dogs stuff.
