At the Races

Hello everyone :)
 Evi here!
      So today I went to the horse races to watch some of my other four legged friends run around in circles with carts behind them. It was so much fun! One of my friends even won her race :) I watched from the side lines and cheered for her the whole time!
I had a great time, and my public loved me! While I was there everybody kept trying to pick me up and cuddle me, Mom said its just because I'm just so darn cute, so I can't help it! :)

It's amazing how much people love dogs, ME in particular :) But why? Take me for example, I bark, I chew, I go in the pond, I roll in the mud, I chase the ducks, I almost always smell, and yet my family loves me with no end! And I know lots of other dogs that do the same thing that are not as cute as me (like my brother!) that receive the same unconditional love. So I did a little research, and found this, an explanation: 

"Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring--it was peace."
- Milan Kundera

So maybe he means even if we are (as four legged people) a bit jealous or upset, its not to the extent of most Human~people, and maybe that's a just refreshing company :) 
Okay, I'm sleepy, I hope you all have Sheep dreams!
