Everyone talks about how awesome it is to have a dog. How a dog will be super excited to see you no matter what. Even is you leave the room for only 5 minutes. Sure unquestioning love is awesome but I saw something much better.
My wife and daughter were out of town for a week. My wife was coming back and we let my daughter decide if she wanted to stay a little bit longer at her grandparents. Well she decided to come home. The reason why she wanted to come home?? Her dad. That is right she missed me.
I go to pick up my girls at the airport and the look I get from my daughter the first time she saw me was way way way way way way better than a wag of a tail or a lick on the face. She jumps up into my arms (luckily she is still just a little thing) and wanted me to carry her. She puts one hand on each of my cheeks and smiled from ear to ear. I have to admit I felt very cool. I got lots of hugs and smiles.
I felt super duper loved. My daughter is way better than a dog.
