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

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 so very short.

What a beautiful, moving piece. They do love us so, don't they. The least we can do is be worthy of that love.

That's exactly why I spoil Lily rotten and spend every possible waking moment with her. I don't ever want to look back and say that I should've spent more time with her. She already owns all my free time and I wouldn't have it any other way.
