I wish I had my dog's desire to run around for hours (or minutes) on end and his contentment at sleeping for hours on end, but then again I might not have any friends...Nevertheless, it irritates the bejeezle right out of me that I don't want to exercise and eat lettuce, but I won't be content unless I do. Therefore, when I notice loved ones struggling with hurdles on their road to contentment, I'm always the first to give them a little shove---not really hard or anything, just a little...boop. Like when my mom and Papa Bruce kept stalling about getting a dog. I knew that's what would make them content, but obstacles just kept standing in the way. So, I *may* have organized a team of ten or so to build them a fence and I *may* have tried to force my dog on them and I *may* have sobbed, "I just know this is what will make you happy, so why won't you just take him?"
I know. It sounds annoying, but it's actually very charming. :) So, last weekend, they adopted Charlie:
Just in case any of you are in need of a little shove in the dog (or cat) department:

For those of you who really don't want a dog but are trying to find your road to contentment, ask me. I have ALL the answers...just ask my family! ;)
