I figure dogs do not have fully functioning taste buds. Throughout a typical day, my dog seems to lick everything. Therefore, one day I realized something about his licking ecstasy. He never reacts in a negative way. No matter what material is placed in his mouth, joy fills him. Why is that? Why are dogs so grateful for everything from peanut butter to butt? In my life, I am sure I whine too much. I complain about how I feel or what food I eat. Sometimes the simple joy of just having something escapes me. Maybe I need a little toe jam.
