I really wish it was that simple with our dog. He would plow right through you if you stood in his way. He used to actually give me bruises on my legs from ramming them into the doorjam. He was ALWAYS excited. You just couldn't keep him calm if a door opened, or someone came in the room, or anyone uttered the word walk (and later if you even spelled W A L K).
Every man dies, but few truly live. Live your life to its fullest, every day as if it were your last.
