Some things are really cool. Handprints left in fluffy shag carpet. Grass that looks pokey but feels soft as a blanket. Couches that look hard but cushion like the fluffiest clouds.
But dog paws? Those are infinitely cool.
Their pads are scratchy but, when I rub them just the right way, they’re also remarkably soft. And when everybody’s all relaxed I can feel that really neat webbing between their pads.
Plus there’s something so deeply trusting when a dog lets you hold their paw. It’s like touching a pure spirit, one capable of more love than her body can hold.
