Think about it. The dogs are always happy to see you whether you have been gone for 5 days or 5 minutes. They have the ability to forgive anything. They don't judge you based on what you look like but instead on who you are. Once they get to know you they are a friend for life no matter what.
I guess I am just having one of those days.
Wouldn't the world be a better place if it were run by creatures who never pass up the opportunity for a good snuggle? (in this case Baily snuck in on a sleeping Mesa after they had spent a couple days sleeping apart)
