There's something truly invaluable about the nonjudgmental gaze of a loyal dog that's just happy to sit/nap beside you. 



Sleep. It's an unavoidable entirely necessary element of this here existence thing. We've simply got to do it. Not only do we have to sleep, but we are destined to spend a lot of time doing it.
