Two pictures: One is real life and the other is a cartoon. Only problem is that the cartoon occurs daily in real life. Why? Because both dogs want to be in the recliner next to my wife Linda. Why? Read on...
1 Corinthians, Chapter 13 (WEB)
4 Love is patient and is kind; love doesn’t envy. Love doesn’t brag, is not proud, 5 doesn’t behave itself inappropriately, doesn’t seek its own way, is not provoked, takes no account of evil; 6 doesn’t rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails.
Even a "guard Poodle" needs love and will do what is necessary to get it. And people are no different. Today, show someone you love them. A chair is optional.
ps. The white poodle is Buddy and the creme (Apricot when his coat is long) one is Pal. Buddy is the worst "offender" of the cartoon; with Pal a close second.
