Is there any greater companion than a dog
A true partner in crime, ears up and tongue hanging in the wind
A better caretaker and babysitter I have yet to know
They pass through finite lives knowing an unimpeachable joy we can only wonder and share
Enjoying something as simple as walking with a friend down a dirt path, they find life at its core and attack it with love
A dog will never truly leave your side, though getting lost now and again seems to be their privilege
I was grown and raised alongside different dogs, each as unique as there are religions in the world, and I have no doubt of their affection for me.
I cannot find another creature in the world to equal their loyalty, they are not necessarily man’s best friend, but his truest soul, always parted too early.
