you know my relationship with Brighty has been
since Wes and I have had children.
As I have taken moments lately to watch this dog with my children.
I must say, he has been a faithful companion in our family.
When Wes and I have been frustrated with him, he has been patient.
He is gentle, in every way.
He lets our children tug, pull, squeeze and rid him.
He welcomes a petting.
I chuckle as I think back to when I was first pregnant with Wyatt and Wes and I read a book on boxers - and how they respond to their owners' babies...
"Boxers will admiringly look up at their owner with the new baby in arms."
With each baby we have brought home to our home.
I recall that his guard instincts "heighten" for a few weeks.
It truly is awesome and precious.
I'm not quite sure. But nonetheless, he has.
As much as I've tried to fight his place here, he truly has been a loyal, faithful, kind companion to our household.
I apologize to all of my animal-loving friends. I mean no harm in any way, I am just not that much of a dog person. But I have come to a new place with Brighty.
Truly. We could not have ever asked for a better animal.
Brighty was Wes' and I's first Christmas gift to one another.
