Esteemed quadrapeds: Vis-a-vis your issue of anointing a number one fan. The problem with being a dog is that you are not a cat, to whom this is no issue at all. Cats just naturally assume that everyone is their number one fan.
Also, they could care less.
And there’s the rub, caring. Doggies of your stripe have extreme difficulty not caring.
So, here’s a compromise. Utilize two other feline traits, the ability to dissemble, and a very short memory. Whoever is being good to you at any given moment is your BFF. Keep quiet and let the next moment take care of itself. It will.
Regards to the Mamas, let them know I’m using the MyHike app most every day and my usual elevation gain is 650 ft.
Also, mention I have time in my day to play words with friends, should they choose to chime in.
