Also good for the kids. They encourage having slow readers read to the family pets. A dog will listen to a kid read a whole book one damn sssyl-la——-ble at a time, and it will never get frustrated, or correct their pronunciation, or start playing Angry Bird because it can’t stand listening to the slowness any more. The dog will look at the kid approvingly, because, human. Human is talking. Human is interacting.
So this is a great win-win.
i am a 26 year old man and this almost made me cry
This almost made me cry-
My late cat Pouncer loved to be read to. He wouldn’t leave the room unless I stopped.
And on his death bed I read him Alice in Wonderland, and he purred till he could purr no more
Omg…this is amazing. I’m so touched.
I want you. Your mind, body, soul. The regrets, mistakes, the awful things you’ve gone through. The joy, the laughter, the sorrow, the anger, the despair, the happiness, the passion, the love, the chance to be part of the memories that lift you on the dreariest of days.
I. Want. You.
