I am your dog, and I have a little something I'd
like to whisper in your ear. I know that you humans
lead busy lives. Some have to work, some have
children to raise. It always seems like you are
running here and there, often much too fast, often
never noticing the truly grand things in life. Look
down at me now, while you sit there at your
computer. See the way my dark brown eyes look at
yours? They are slightly cloudy now. That comes
with age. The gray hairs are beginning to ring my
soft muzzle.

You smile at me; I see love in your eyes. What do
you see in mine? Do you see a spirit? A soul
inside, who loves you as no other could in the
world? A spirit that would forgive all trespasses
of prior wrong doing for just a simple moment of
your time? That is all I ask. To slow down, if even
for a few minutes to be with me. So many times you
have been saddened by the words you read on that
screen, of other of my kind, passing. Sometimes we
die young and oh so quickly, sometimes so suddenly
it wrenches your heart out of your throat.
Sometimes, we age so slowly before your eyes that
you may not even seem to know until the very end,
when we look at you with grizzled muzzles and
cataract clouded eyes. Still the love is always
there, even when we must take that long sleep, to
run free in a distant land.

I may not be here tomorrow; I may not be here next
week. Someday you will shed the water from your
eyes, that humans have when deep grief fills their
souls, and you will be angry at yourself that you
did not have just "One more day" with me. Because I
love you so, your sorrow touches my spirit and
grieves me. We have NOW, together. So come, sit
down here next to me on the floor, and look deep
into my eyes. What do you see? If you look hard and
deep enough we will talk, you and I, heart to heart.
Come to me not as "alpha" or as "trainer" or even
"Mom or Dad," come to me as a living soul and stroke
my fur and let us look deep into one another's eyes,
and talk.

I may tell you something about the fun of chasing a
tennis ball, or I may tell you something profound
about myself, or even life in general. You decided
to have me in your life because you wanted a soul to
share such things with. Someone very different from
you, and here I am. I am a dog, but I am alive. I
feel emotion, I feel physical senses, and I can
revel in the differences of our spirits and souls. I
do not think of you as a "Dog on two feet" -- I know
what you are. You are human, in all your quirkiness,
and I love you still.

Now, come sit with me, on the floor. Enter my
world, and let time slow down if only for 15
minutes. Look deep into my eyes, and whisper to my
ears. Speak with your heart, with your joy and I
will know your true self. We may not have tomorrow,
and life is oh so very short.

--Love, (on behalf of canines everywhere)
