and my dog came running to eat it, but knowing that chocolate causes harm to dogs, I quickly picked it up and threw it away — much to his disappointment.
I began to think,
I would NEVER allow my dog, my baby, to eat even the tiniest bit of chocolate even if I knew such a small amount wasn’t going to hurt him. I just care about him too much.
And I began to understand how parents can be overprotective of their children,
Sure one cigarette or one drink or one party won’t actually harm your child and he or she may really enjoy it,
but just the mere idea of harm coming to your child is enough to make you snip it at the bud.
So there’s me finding profound meaning in something as trivial as dropping part of a donut on the floor at 2 in the morning.
