I love people! I have always been a people person and thought that when I was older I might do something to improve the human condition.
I was born with the gift of deep empathy and can feel the love of a child and the loneliness of an aging adult.
There are two people, above all, to whom I feel particularly attached.
Oh, here come Jim and Karen now! "Hi you guys, what took you so long? You've been gone for hours"
"Rover!" said an unsmiling Jim, "Get off that couch right now, you know better than that! On top of the furniture is no place for a dog!"
A DOG ?
