For me, it’s my dog.

I woke up in the middle of the night and stupidly checked a local news website. I was met with several stories about another mass shooting and felt myself tearing up. I had to stop myself, and immediately go cuddle with my dog.

Ever since I was a kid pets have been a big source of comfort for me. Anytime things would go to shit I would find myself spending more and more time with my dogs. When I get home at the end of a rough day, I always spend a few minutes with my dog and make sure I give him my full attention. He is such a happy boy who is full of energy and love. He is able to bring up my mood faster than anything else in this world, even when he’s being a little butthead like he is this morning. Sometimes I think about what life would be like if I didn’t have a pet, and just the thought of it makes me sad. 

What about you GT? What can you always rely on to make you happy?
