Sometimes when you are older you need a little help from the younger generation.

No shame in that.

The love between a person and a dog is so pure, maybe unique. My current blessed fur babe and I have never had a fight, never an argument or cross words, in 11 years. It's all love. That soldier's face says it all - love.
