Kids and pets.
Pets and kids.
Soup and sandwich.
Love and marriage.
What do all of these pairings have in common with each other? They are all things that naturally go together.
Just look at the picture accompanying today’s post. This is Toby and my grandson, Charlie, and my granddaughter, Sara Riley. What a happy crew!
Toby came in to the hospital today for a routine puppy preventive care visit and my wife, son, daughter-in-law and the grandbabies stopped by to see what pets were there to be oohed and aahed over and admired. They were happy to meet handsome Toby and he enjoyed visiting with them, too.
While I fully recognize that not everyone likes pets, wants pets or can afford pets, it simply seems so natural for a child and a pet to grow up together.
See you tomorrow, Dr. Randolph.
