Our kids weren’t around when our last dog was a puppy, and sometimes they treat Java like he is a toy.
When he was smaller, they liked to carry him and they had to realize that as he got bigger, they shouldn’t carry him, because they are a part of his world, but he is not necessarily part of theirs.
He is not at their beckoned call.
Everybody has to be responsible for Java.
We all feed and walk him.
The four of us come together to focus our attention on him.”
