I suspect for Aspergers, or even just for misanthropes like me, pets are straight shooters and thus the relationship is deep and true. As they say in business world, if you want to be liked, get a dog. The business world is stupid for trivialising that trueness and deepness, but the argument is sound. By the way, it did and it was. Always great to read your thoughts, PH.
Thank you, Ad. When I get a reply like yours (not that there are many) I know I’m on the right sled. Yukon’t Buck the call of the wild. I know you ended up under the ice and I remain sorry for your crippling loss. With deep sympathy and many thanks, P.
