You know your pets.

They are the funniest, cleverest, cutest things in the whole world. You are convinced they are human in some way. Or perhaps you mistake shameless begging for compassion. But they do care. Seriously.

This is April. She became a part of our family after a horrendous beginning in a place that didn’t take very good care of their animals. That place has since been closed, thank goodness. April is mostly blind, but with the little eyesight she does have she manages miracles. She has learned how to cope and live, and most of all, be a happy dog.

This is one of April’s hobbies. Flat on her back, ball in mouth, she ever-so-carefully removes the ball and proceeds to balance it between paws. She’s so good, she can do it with just one.

Here’s to our pets. They are the best things in the world. If you have pets, you’ll know exactly what I mean.
