Love the puppy pic, Paul! And Harry Truman was right... I've always loved that quote. Actually, the minute I saw your title in the blog roll, I said to myself "get a dog."

Paul, I prefer kitties, and have two that are the cutest to me.   They are a kick to be around.

Hello Paul, Well Roy Kelley is just outside Washington D. C. so he is close to a friend, but Harry had it right!

It seems that more and more the safer way to have a true friend is to have a pet, haha.

Hi Paul- this one definitely has me chuckling.  Maybe that's why many Presidents had dogs as well.

I wish Harry Truman's words still rang true.  Sadly, I think if you want a friend in Washington D.C. today, you would need a lobbyist!

You nailed it with that perspective Myrl Jeffcoat
