There's something undeniably beautiful about the bond between a young kid and their dog.
I admittedly get a little choked up whenever I see a kid and an animal as best friends, hanging out at the park or playing outside. I guess I get kind of jealous in a way because I didn't have that kind of relationship as a child. You know what I mean: Living out in the country with my trusty canine companion at my side.
Instead, I settled for "micro-connections" with animals. Small pockets of time I got to spend with dogs or cats where I'd give them all my love for a short amount of time, living out what could've been when I was a young child.
