He tries to say, "I love you." But the plants get in the way.
At least, according to a lovelorn letter making the rounds on Facebook.
Apparently, a dog has been inconsolable since the neighbor put some plants in her window. You see, for the last six months, the dog used to enjoy nothing more than putting his paws on the railing to gaze up at his neighbor's cat.
His darling cat. His soul's sweetest delight - and then the potted plants went up.
So what does this hound of love do?
Why, get his owner to pen a tender missive begging the owner to please remove the damned plants so he can resume staring at her in a totally-not-at-all creepy way.
"This is going to sound ridiculous," the letter reads, "but I thought you should know that my dog (who lives next door) is madly in love with your cat and has been probably for six months."
This sort of thing isn't entirely unheard of.
Love knows no species.
