The world is full of them

Cute little kids are everywhere and boy does that make me happy.  Today at the Veterans Home we met this little guy.   What a happy fun little critter he was.  This is me with the little guy.
This next picture is of my fellow Therapy Dog Dazzle.  She is so big and he is so little, he almost got lost in her.  We had so much fun.

Here is a cool quote about
another cool critter.

"What other creature is so able to pierce the veneer of our defenses, reducing the gruffest human being to unselfconscious displays of laughter and fun?  By their sheer spontaneity, Dogs find our soft spots, keeping us in touch with a more honest vision of ourselves that doesn't buy its own facade."
The Monks of New Skete

Special thanks to my buddy Goose of Gospel of Goose and his mom Pastor Michelle for giving us the coolest book called I & DOG by The Monks of New Skete where we got this quote.

Have a nice day everyone

Oh Bert you and cute little guy are so handsome. Looks like you and Dazzle made his day. Two paws up to you!
I'm glad you are enjoying the book. My MOM reads it to me sometimes at night as I drift off to sleep.
