The Animals and Me

Posted August 25, 2009 & filed under Notebook.

 

I have this special
connection to
animals. I love to
be near them.
They never put
pressure on me.
They love and
accept me for
who I am.
I have a dog named
Tinker Bell, a
chihuahua that’s
black with eyes
that look just like
mine. She likes
to sleep with me
and jump on me.
Even though she
drives me crazy
I still love her with
all my heart.
Once I had an
iguana named
Greeny and another
one named 100
Dollar Bill because
he was green too.
They love to run,
and I slept with
both of them. I
liked to let people
touch them, but
they both died.
Animals make me
feel happy.
