    My little dog

    I would just like to say that my little dog is the best medicine in the world. I never had a dog I loved as much as this little Pekingese. He has the brightest personality. He steals my socks. He follows me around. He's fun to walk. And he's taught me to love MORE.

    Does this sound like something serious?

    In the corner of my eye I keep seeing my dog, or people I know and forget sometimes where I am? Like if I’m laying in bed I think my friend is in the room, or my dog for a while then really focus and see they’re not actually here.
