As much as The Hubby tried to deny it at first, this has developed into a strong, unmistakable bond. The term “Man’s best friend” exists for a reason:
She waits impatiently for him to come home from work. They are always happy to see each other.
Should he fall asleep on the couch well past his bedtime, she will nudge him to let him know he needs to go upstairs to bed.
He scratches her behind the ears, which she loves.
She keeps him company when he works on the car or shovels snow from the driveway.
She watches out for his children, and he watches out for her.
They share many quiet moments together, in the shade, on a hot afternoon.
There is nothing quite as strong as the loyalty and trust that exists with a great friend and companion.
