Man's Best Friend

This is Bodie, my roommate's beagle.  Like most dogs, Bodie likes to sleep, chase his tail, eat sticks, and chew holes in socks.  Sometimes he pees on the carpet, but usually only when girls come over.

I think that we humans could learn a lot from dogs: undying loyalty and admiration, unabashed foolishness, and a healthy balance of making oneself comfortable and everyone else happy.

It reminds me of a quote from one of my favorite movies, Harvey: "In this world, you must be oh-so-smart or oh-so-pleasant.  Well, for years I was smart.  I recommend pleasant."
