Friends frequently ask me which of my dogs I love more, Sanchez or Gina. It’s a funny question, as I doubt many people ask parents of human children which child they love the most. But, by appearance sake, friends suspect I love Gina more. She is younger, higher drive and requires more of my attention. It’s not unusual for me to take frequent work breaks and tug with Gina, to help her burn off energy.
What people sometimes donít see is that while I am tugging with Gina, Iím frequently discreetly giving Sanchez treats. Or sometimes, Iím rubbing Sanchezís tummy while Iím tugging with Gina.
But, in reality, I love them both more than I ever could have imagined loving any dog again after my Golden passed. The good news about love is that it is infinite.
