I found this as I searched for my daily dog Tweet. I couldn't reduce it to 160 characters. I love these thoughts.


He is my other eyes that can see above the clouds;
My other ears that hear above the winds.
He is the part of me that can reach out into the sea.
He has told me a thousand times over that I am his reason for being;
by the way he rests against 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.
(I think it makes him sick with worry when he is not along to care for me.)

When I am wrong, he is delighted to forgive.
When I am angry, he clowns to make me smile.
When I am happy, he is joy unbounded.
When I am a fool, he ignores it.
When I succeed, he brags.
Without him, I am only another man.
With him, I am all-powerful.
He is loyalty itself.

He has taught me the meaning of devotion.
With him, I know a secret comfort and a private peace. He has brought me understanding where before I was ignorant.

His head on my knee can heal my human hurts.
His presence by my side is protection against my fears of dark and unknown things.
He has promised to wait for me... whenever... wherever—in case I need him.
And I expect I will—as I always have.
He is just my dog.

by Gene Hill

This touched me deeply....my precious little dog, Allie,(now going on fourteen years old) has just been diagnosed with cancer of the bladder. And I refuse to let whatever time she has left be sad and depressing....she worries about me when I'm upset....so I won't let her see my breaking heart....every moment with her is so precious!

A marvelous quote about our truly marvelous canine companions. And oddly enough, I quoted Gene Hill too in my last poem - Dog Is My Teacher, Part III.
