Every day I hear my wife yell at our bloodhound, Georgia.
She’s usually trying to get into the trash, or lick the dirty dishes in the sink (Georgia, not my wife) to warrant the high pitched yell. And don’t get me wrong, it is a warranted. Having a dog can be a daily test of your patience. If it’s not that, then there’s the shedding, the slobber, the fact that our couches are now Georgia’s couches.
Having a dog can be a daily test of your patience. But I wouldn’t trade her for anything. I love that dog.
Which is why a recent Instagram post by Sylvester Stallone hit me in just the right spot today, so I thought I’d share it with you.
Sylvester writes of this picture:
I’m not crying. You’re crying.
Sly posted another photo after this one that showcased just how much he loved his dog, Butkus.
Can you imagine? Being in such a tough spot? So hungry and poor that you are forced to sell your only real companion? I can’t. I could never imagine being in that spot where I would give up Georgia. But if I had to… you better believe I’d also pay anything to get her back. Even if it was 375 times what I sold her for.
You’re awesome Sly. Thanks for sharing! And if you’re reading this… do something special for your pup today to let them know how much you appreciate their love and companionship.
