You don’t really own your possessions, they own you. Dog lovers don’t take offense. Nobody owns a dog! Ever wonder why dog’s are man’s best friend? If someone waited on you hand and foot, gave you food and drink whenever you wanted it, played with you when you were energetic, walked you when you needed to be walked, followed you around cleaning up your little (big) offerings in the grass; wouldn’t you be their best friend? You don’t own a dog any more than you own a home, a car, a refrigerator, clothing, stock, etc. Everything we think we own just adds another level of responsibility to life – to clean, repair, monitor, maintain, or store – we need bigger barns!
