We are not always the best of friends. Sometimes I consider him my arch enemy.
He often pushes me over the limit (barking at neighbors when the baby is drifting off to sleep, splashing water on the laundry room floor when he drinks, snoring at night, many other doggie offenses)
But sometimes, he sure comes in handy. Like when a bowl of leftovers falls out of the fridge and splatters all over the kitchen floor.
