So today, let us celebrate Otis Earle and Hi-Ball, and, yes, Clifford the Big Red Dog as well, and let us think of this ole world without our canine friends. I’m sure you agree it would be a dreary and dull place without them.
Can we even imagine a dog-free-life? Really? I don’t think so … give your dog a hug today, because he or she already loves you, and you want to go to Heaven with them, don’t you?
One more thing … George and Gracie, my solid white, twin kitties are a might upset. You see they did not know Lewis Grizzard, and, well, the two fuzzy ones want you to know they do not always have the attitude, “What’s in it for me?” Not every time, that is …
Love your pets – they are the best friends you will ever have, and if you are lucky, Otis Earle will come by one day for a visit.
