Dog Stories and Poetry
by Patricia Walter
Living with 16 dogs has given
me insight into a dog’s soul – their unconditional love for
you, their master, no matter how imperfect you might be.
Dogs are so easy to please and ask for so little, at least
after they get past the puppy stage. Even as puppies, they
don’t ask for much. They too often find plenty to keep them
busy from chewing your best shoes, the corner of your
beautiful coffee table or an edge of your oriental rug. They
never mean harm, but it is us that puts them in harms way.
We often leave them alone for eight to ten hours a day when
we work. You would get bored being in a crate or home alone
all day everyday if you were a young child. Dogs just want
to be part of a pack and need companionship. They truly miss
us when we are away for extended times.
That is the
of being dog-
to bark, to get dirty feet
to give sloppy kisses.
To always be there
at your feet, in your bed
by your side.
In the car, in the park
in your heart.
That is the business
of being dog-
one who thinks that you
and you alone are
the center of their universe.
