A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things — a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty. (for @captainevans)
Ooh! I mean, each cat will live about twelve years, I can’t wait… and
each cat has nine lives! That’s four times twelve, times nine… No,
it’s less than that. Anyway, that’s more than I’ll ever live. I’ll be
gone! No, oh, no. They’ll be gone. I’ll think of a way. After all, there
are millions of reasons why I should. All of them dollars. Millions.
Those cats have got to go!
