Most people never leave home without their phone these days. Having the ability to communicate at any time by calling or texting is convenient. Pets don’t have opposable thumbs, which makes it difficult to type…but what if your pet could send a text to let you know what’s going on when you aren’t at home? Here are some of the exchanges that might occur:
