^ Not mine, but I’d take him if I didn’t already have three (VERY) dependents. Carter and his parents came to visit a couple weeks ago, and we made sure to compare him to our kids (some people call them animals, but I’m taking some creative liberties) frequently during the visit. I know you’re not supposed to, and I’ve heard my other friends complain when people compare having pets to having children, but I couldn’t even stop myself. Love you, Carter. And Tory. And Lucy. And Molly.

It all started when I was showing our tenant roommate friend, Abbey, how entertaining the Friskies apps are for the cats. HOWEVER, as soon as I placed the iPad on the floor for the cats, Tory took over. Turns out the Friskies apps are ACTUALLY more entertaining for the dog.
