    I'm lucky. I've got two.

    I'm lucky, I've got two.

(I think it makes him sick with worry when he is not along to care for me.)


    When I am wrong, he is delighted to forgive. When I am angry, he clowns to make me smile. When I am happy, he is joy unbounded. When I am a fool, he ignores it. When I succeed, he brags. Without him, I am only another man. With him, I am all-powerful. He is loyalty itself.
    He has taught me the meaning of devotion. With him, I know a secret comfort and a private peace. He has brought me understanding where before I was ignorant.


    His head on my knee can heal my human hurts. His presence by my side is protection against my fears of dark and unknown things. He has promised to wait for me... whenever... wherever—in case I need him. And I expect I will—as I always have. He is just my dog.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    The only thing is mine are yellow. So this line "His presence by my side is protection against my fears of dark and unknown things."
    Would have to be changed to something like. His presence by my side for his protection against his fears.........
    Oh and protection from Mom's stare when he's done something wrong.
    It could be worse You could be on fire.

    That is a wonderful post. I made copies for the various members of the family and neighbors who have dogs.

    However, no dogs here. They make me itch.

    Enjoy,
