"It has become something of a morning ritual whenever I am working from home, that my favorite furry friend comes at me with all types of requests. We start with breakfast, the most important meal of the day. Then after he has cleaned his dish, we get to the snuggles. He’ll get between me and the keyboard for some kisses and cuddle time. Once we have checked that off our list, it’s playtime! Today’s toy was the red string, an old favorite. After all that routine is complete then I can have my coffee with the occasional head-bonk reminder that he’s my little best buddy."
