I recently took over taking care of my brothers dog, Tex, and its the first time I've had a dog that is one hundred precent mine. The bad part is that he's a 3 year old yellow lab that is about 185% certifiably insane. Just this week, he's eaten my grill cover right off the grill, I caught him trying to do the same thing to the comforter on my bed, he ripped my hose rack out of the wall in the backyard, and ate a pretty good bit of the hose itself. That dog can be a real dickhead. None of that really matters to me though, because when I scratch him behind his ears, he starts grunting with the most satisfying look on his face that I immediately forgive him for everything he has fucked up. Who knew something as simple as that could bring about happiness in my life. Focus Family, Money, Friends- those things are all well and good. But what are some of the little things in your life that bring you happiness, that are also the things that you sometimes overlook?
