aww, I am glad you have her. She will love you all her life, unconditionally. No agenda no head games like people sometimes do. even when you feel your worst and unloveable. She will be there waiting ...to share a meal and a cuddle.
We live with our animals 24 hours a day, so we are very sensitized to their almost human-like personalities. My cat says hello and other English words trying desperately to communicate with us. Our dog uses non-verbal language to let us know he can communicate. We just lost one of our dogs of 13 years and it was like losing a son or daughter. It was an awful experience because he was so helpless. I am a biological and physiological psychologist which means I am more biologist and physiologist than psychologist, so I have that same feeling for animals. I love them. I can't help myself.
