From the small dog…

Small Dog is visiting with Sue Vincent today on Sue Vincent’s Daily Echo. I love when Ani decides to chat with Sue. Check it out. I can pretty much guarantee a smile.

      Ok then,” sighed the little dog,
      “We could consider, please,
      the therapeutic benefits
      of sharing Cheddar cheese.”

      How perfect! 😀
