(April '88 - September '02)
Always there - sadly missed
(2003 - Present)
my other ears that can hear above the winds.
He is the part of me that can reach
out into the seas.
that I am the reaon for being;
by the way he rests upon my leg;
by the way he thumps his tail at my smallest smile;
by the way he shows his hurt when I leave
without taking him,
knowing that it makes him sick with worry
when he is not along to care for me.
When I am angry, he plays to make me smile.
When I am happy, he is joy unbounded.
When I succeed, he shows pride.
With him, I am all-powerful.
He has taught me the meaning of devotion.
and a private peace.
He has brought me understanding
where before I was ignorant.
His presence at my side is protection
against my fears of dark and unknown things.
. . . whenever - in case I need him
and I expect I will - as I alawys have.
He is just my Dog.
(1996 - 2003)
He just thought he was my dog.
