Last month, my husband and I celebrated the 26th anniversary of the day we met. By celebrate I mean we completely forgot about it. Since we've known each other 26 years, I've known him for longer than I haven't. It didn't take long after we met for us to decide that our relationship was going to go beyond the first few dates.
The standing joke in my family is that I love the dog most of all. I don't actually think that's true -- at least not all of the time -- but there is certainly something to be said for the dog always being happy to see me and giving me his unconditional love. And so, with much affection and in good humor please, I offer this list of 8 things I tell the dog that I don't say to my husband.
