Let’s live more like dogs

I received this in an email forward today and thought it was so true. Thank you to whoever started this neat message. A Dog’s Purpose?   (from a 6-year-old). Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog’s owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane,…

The beauty of nature
