Like Hubby and I are 17 years apart. Would he have felt some kind of special connection to me if he'd met me when I was 7 or 8, let's say and he was 24 or 25? (I don't mean in any obscene way!) I've certainly met people and thought, if he or she was just 20 years older. . . (not that I don't start enjoying them at the age/level they are. . . but the give and take is different).
Anywho, the point is, I don't think Puppy Yeats and I would have been playmates if she'd been a "kid"when I was one. Why? Because she LOVED her field day--her last day of puppy training. I would have tried to stay home sick!
Course, this doesn't mean I find her any less fluffy, cuddly, and affectionate now!
HOORAY FOR HULA HOOP!
BORN TO BALANCE, BABY
But I'm not much into swinging. . .
