This is my Doolie and he is patiently waiting for me to turn on the TV so we can watch it together.
Now where he watches it from will change from where he is now to my lap, with his motor running, the couch with his head on a pillow or the chair. If I'm watching it, you know he has to help.
When you think you don't need anyone around, you really do. Our pets fill that gap with all the Love that is missing.
