1. "May I?" Jayden sat on the edge of the couch and poured me a fresh cup of tea. He placed his hand over the brew.

You were beingfacetious.""If that means joking, yes I was."

But because it's "only" a dog, we dismiss them as sweet or funny but little more. However when you think about it, what are the things that we most like in another human being? Many times those qualities are seen in our dogs every single day-- we're just so used to them that we pay no attention."
Author: Jonathan Carroll
