The funny thing about dogs is that after they enter your lives, they view themselves as equals. Where you go, they go. Where you sleep, they want to sleep. What you eat, they assume that they should be eating, too. They become an integral part of your family. Today, on Anna's 13th Birthday, her sisters made her breakfast in bed. Guess who was right there? That's right. The dog. He's never one to miss a party.
